[Intro]

| C    Cmaj7 |  F  | 
| C    Cmaj7 |  F  | 


[Verse 1]

C                Cmaj7 F
 Imagine there's no    heaven
C             Cmaj7 F
 It's easy if you   try
C        Cmaj7 F
 No hell below us
C          Cmaj7 F
  Above us only  sky


[Bridge 1]

F        Am/E    Dm7   F/C  
 Imagine all the people

Living for to - day a-hah


[Verse 2]

C                 Cmaj7 F
  Imagine there's no    countries
C               Cmaj7 F
  It isn't hard to    do
C                 Cmaj7 F
  Nothing to kill or    die for
C             Cmaj7 F
  And no religion   too


[Bridge 2]

F        Am/E    Dm7   F/C  
 Imagine all the people

Living life in  peace - you-hou-hou-ou-ou


[Chorus]

F         G          C    Cmaj7  E  E7  
  You may say I'm a dreamer
F         G             C  Cmaj7  E  E7  
  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


[Bridge 3]

F        Am/E    Dm7   F/C  
 Imagine all the people
G           C/G G7
Sharing all the world - you-hou-hou-ou


[Chorus]

F         G          C    Cmaj7  E  E7  
  You may say I'm a dreamer
F         G             C  Cmaj7  E  E7  
  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
