 [Intro]

  BbMaj9    Am7     Fsus/G F         BbMaj9    Am7     Fsus/G Dm     
											   (x4)
||-8-------|-------|-1--1--1-------5|-8-------|-------|-1--1----------5||

||-6-------|-5-----|-3--------------|-6-------|-5-----|-3--------------||

  
 [Verse 1]

 this part is identical to the intro - you can play this while singing
  “five hundred twenty-five thousand...” or whatever.

  BbMaj9   Am7      Fsus/G F         BbMaj9   Am7      Fsus/G Dm     (x2)
||-8------|--------|-1--1--1-------5|-8------|--------|-1--1-(1)-------||
||-6------|-8------|-1--1--1--5s/6--|-6------|-8------|-1--1--6--------||
||--------|-5------|----------------|--------|-5------|-------7--------||
||--------|--------|-------3--------|--------|--------|-------7--------||
||(1)-----|--------|----3-----3s/5--|(1)-----|--------|----3--5--------||
||-6------|-5------|-3--------------|-6------|-5------|-3--------------||


 however, i find this to be a little easier to manage while singing the next part:
   “in daylights, in sunsets...” (just strum it however you want it)

  BbMaj7   Am7      Fsus/G F         BbMaj7   Am7      Fsus/G Dm        
||(1)-----|--------|-1-----1--------|(1)-----|--------|-1----(1)-------||
||-6------|-5------|-1-----1--------|-6------|-5------|-1-----6--------||
||-7------|-5------|-3-----2--------|-7------|-5------|-3-----7--------||
||-7------|-5------|-3-----3--------|-7------|-5------|-3-----7--------||
||--------|--------|-------3--------|--------|--------|-------5--------||
||-6------|-5------|-3-----1--------|-6------|-5------|-3--------------||


 then just repeat the first part when going back to sing
  “five hundred twenty-five thousand...,” etc.

  BbMaj9   Am7      Fsus/G F         BbMaj9   Am7      Fsus/G Dm     
||-8------|--------|-1--1--1-------5|-8------|--------|-1--1-(1)-------||
||-6------|-8------|-1--1--1--5s/6--|-6------|-8------|-1--1--6--------||
||--------|-5------|----------------|--------|-5------|-------7--------||
||--------|--------|-------3--------|--------|--------|-------7--------||
||(1)-----|--------|----3-----3s/5--|(1)-----|--------|----3--5--------||
||-6------|-5------|-3--------------|-6------|-5------|-3--------------||


 [Chorus]

 just strum these chords steadily while singing “how about...love?” 
   nothing to it. the harmony, however, is something else. :)

  Bb9(no7)  F       Bb9(no7)  C       Bb9(no7)  F       Eb9(no7)  Csus4   
||-1------|-1------|-1------|--------|-1------|-1------|-1------|-1------|
||-1------|-1------|-1------|-5------|-1------|-1------|-1------|-1------|
||-3------|-2------|-3------|-5------|-3------|-2------|-3------|-5------|
||-3------|-3------|-3------|-5------|-3------|-3------|-3------|-5------|
||-1------|-3------|-1------|-3------|-1------|-3------|-1------|-3------|
||--------|-1------|--------|--------|--------|-1------|--------|--------|


 “seasons of looooooooove...” - guitar is identical to the intro again. 

  BbMaj9   Am7      Fsus/G F         BbMaj9   Am7      Fsus/G Dm     
||-8------|--------|-1--1--1-------5|-8------|--------|-1--1-(1)-------||
||-6------|-8------|-1--1--1--5s/6--|-6------|-8------|-1--1--6--------||
||--------|-5------|----------------|--------|-5------|-------7--------||
||--------|--------|-------3--------|--------|--------|-------7--------||
||(1)-----|--------|----3-----3s/5--|(1)-----|--------|----3--5--------||
||-6------|-5------|-3--------------|-6------|-5------|-3--------------||


 [Verse 2 - the solos]

 again, whether you’re impersonating a big black woman musing about journeys to plan,
  or some black dude soulfully mourning for his dead transvestite lover, it’s easier
   to strum along with these chords: (similar to verse 1)

 “five hundred twenty-five thousand...”

  BbMaj7   Am7      Fsus/G F         BbMaj7   Am7      Fsus/G Dm     (x2)
||(1)-----|--------|-1-----1--------|(1)-----|--------|-1----(1)-------||
||-6------|-5------|-1-----1--------|-6------|-5------|-1-----6--------||
||-7------|-5------|-3-----2--------|-7------|-5------|-3-----7--------||
||-7------|-5------|-3-----3--------|-7------|-5------|-3-----7--------||
||--------|--------|-------3--------|--------|--------|-------5--------||
||-6------|-5------|-3-----1--------|-6------|-5------|-3--------------||

 “in truths that she learned, or times that he cried...”

  BbMaj7   Am7      Fsus/G F         BbMaj7   Am7      Fsus/G Dm     
||(1)-----|--------|-1-----1--------|(1)-----|--------|-1----(1)-------||
||-6------|-5------|-1-----1--------|-6------|-5------|-1-----6--------||
||-7------|-5------|-3-----2--------|-7------|-5------|-3-----7--------||
||-7------|-5------|-3-----3--------|-7------|-5------|-3-----7--------||
||--------|--------|-------3--------|--------|--------|-------5--------||
||-6------|-5------|-3-----1--------|-6------|-5------|-3--------------||



[Bridge]
  
 surprisingly you’re still playing the same chords while going 
   “it’s time now *clap* to sing out *clap* tho’ the story never ends...”
     how you’re going to manage to clap your hands while playing guitar is a mystery to me.

  BbMaj7   Am7      Fsus/G F         BbMaj7   Am7      Fsus/G Dm     
||(1)-----|--------|-1-----1--------|(1)-----|--------|-1----(1)-------||
||-6------|-5------|-1-----1--------|-6------|-5------|-1-----6--------||
||-7------|-5------|-3-----2--------|-7------|-5------|-3-----7--------||
||-7------|-5------|-3-----3--------|-7------|-5------|-3-----7--------||
||--------|--------|-------3--------|--------|--------|-------5--------||
||-6------|-5------|-3-----1--------|-6------|-5------|-3--------------||

[Repeat Chorus]

 End the song by repeating “seasons of love” twice more and fading out on a Dm chord. 
 Add the bottom note if you wish - it makes it sound more fateful like in the movie.

 “loooooooove....”

  Dm/A
