So this here is my version of "What's going on", 
the chords are not that basic, 
but I think that they sound alright with this song.  
Should be played loosely to give more of a funky feel to it.

Enjoy!!!
     
Chords used:

      Emaj7      C#m7      F#m11      B9sus4      Am

[Verse]

Emaj7                             C#m7
Mother, mother    There's too many of you crying
Emaj7                                            C#m7
Brother, brother, brother    There's far too many of you dying


[Chorus]

              F#m11
You know we've got to find a way
              B9sus4
To bring some lovin' here today - Ya


[Verse]

Emaj7                               C#m7
Father, father     We don't need to escalate
        Emaj7                                     C#m7
You see, war is not the answer    For only love can conquer hate


[Chorus]

              F#m11
You know we've got to find a way     
              B9sus4
To bring some lovin' here today


[Bridge]

F#m11            B9sus4
Picket lines and picket signs
F#m11                 B9sus4
Don't punish me with brutality
F#m11        B9sus4      
Talk to me, so you can see
Emaj7
Oh, what's going on What's going on
C#m7
Ya, what's going on Ah, what's going on


(some sort of break or interlude)

Am
In the mean time   Right on, baby   Right on  Right on 


[Verse]

Emaj7                     C#m7
Father, father, everybody thinks we're wrong
     Emaj7                                             C#m7
Oh, but who are they to judge us    Simply because our hair is long


[Chorus]

                   F#m11
Oh, you know we've got to find a way
                 B9sus4
To bring some understanding here today
Oh


[Bridge]

F#m11            B9sus4
Picket lines and picket signs
F#m11                B9sus4
Don't punish me with brutality
F#m11       B9sus4      
Talk to me, so you can see   Oh!
Emaj7
What's going on   Ya, what's going on
        C#m7
Tell me what's going o
 
              Emaj7       
I'll tell you what's going on - Uh


[Outro]

Am
Right on baby
Right on baby

To get the exact rythm and "spacing" of the lyrics, 
my advice is to just listen to the song!!!
