Imagine Live
Artist: John Lennon
Song: "Imagine" (live)
Album: Acoustic (2004)

This is exactly how John plays "Imagine" in the live version that is included on 
the 2004 Acoustic compilation album. I am 100% positive that this is 100% correct, 
and it's also the best transcription from piano to acoustic guitar that I've heard 
of this song. Enjoy!

C                    Fmaj7
Imagine there's no heaven
C                Fmaj7
It's easy if you try
C             Fmaj7
No hell below us
C              Fmaj7
Above us only sky
F       F/E       Dm  Dm/C
Imagine all the people
G             G7
Living for today...

C                        Fmaj7
Imagine there's no countries
C                Fmaj7
It isn't hard to do
C                      Fmaj7
Nothing to kill or die for
C               Fmaj7
And no religion too
F       F/E       Dm  Dm/C
Imagine all the people
G              G7
Living life in peace...

F       G         C      E7
You may say I'm a dreamer
F       G           C    E7
But I'm not the only one
F          G          C     E7
I hope someday you'll join us
F       G          C        Fmaj7  
And the world will live as one

C                Fmaj7
Imagine no possessions (try)
C               Fmaj7
I wonder if you can
C                       Fmaj7
No need for greed or hunger
C                Fmaj7
A brotherhood of man
F       F/E        Dm  Dm/C
Imagine all the people
G                   G7
Sharing all the world...

F       G         C      E7
You may say I'm a dreamer
F       G           C    E7
But I'm not the only one
F          G          C     E7
I hope someday you'll join us
F       G          C          
And the world will live as one

Thank you!

About the artist behind Imagine Live:

John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE (born John Winston Lennon; 9 October 1940–8 December 1980) was an English rock musician, singer, songwriter, artist, and peace activist who gained worldwide fame as one of the founding members of The Beatles. As a member of the group, Lennon was one of the lead vocalists and co-wrote the majority of the band's songs with bassist Paul McCartney.

In his solo career, Lennon wrote and recorded songs such as "Give Peace a Chance" and "Imagine". Lennon revealed his rebellious nature and wit on television, in films such as A Hard Day's Night, in books such as In His Own Write, and in press conferences and interviews. He was controversial through his work as a peace activist, artist, and author.

Lennon had two sons: Julian Lennon, with his first wife Cynthia Lennon, and Sean Ono Lennon, with his second wife, avant-garde artist Yoko Ono. After a self-imposed retirement from 1976 to 1980, Lennon reemerged with a comeback album, but was murdered one month later in New York City on 8 December 1980. In 2002, respondents to a BBC poll on the 100 Greatest Britons voted Lennon into eighth place. In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked Lennon number 38 on its list of "The Immortals: The Fifty Greatest Artists of All Time" and ranked The Beatles at number one.
