 Imagine there's no    heaven

  But I'm not the only one
F            G           C    Cmaj7  E  E7  
 I hope some day you'll join us
F         G          C
  And the world will be as one


[Verse 3]

C             Cmaj7 F
   Imagine no pos - sessions
C             Cmaj7 F
  I wonder if you   can
C                  Cmaj7 F
 No need for greed or    hunger
C              Cmaj7 F
 A brotherhood of    man

  But I'm not the only one
F            G           C    Cmaj7  E  E7  
 I hope some day you'll join us
F         G          C
  And the world will live as one

for a different variation in the chorus, play the E7-020100 by lifting your ring finger, this continues the decending bass feel
