Intro
C G6+4 Am Fmaj7 D7

Verse 1
                    C         G6+4  Am
We're playing those mind games    together
            Fmaj7              D7
Pushing the barriers, planting seeds
            C   G6+4   Am
Playing the mind    guerrilla
             Fmaj7            D7
Chanting the mantra, peace on earth
                          C         G6+4  Am
We all been playing those mind games    forever
             Fmaj7                   D7
Some kind of druid dudes lifting the veil
          C   G6+4   Am
Doing the mind    guerrilla
             Fmaj7                     D7
Some call it magic, the search for the grail

Bridge 1
C    D      G           Em             D7
Love is the answer, and you know that, for sure
C    D    G           Em                               D7
Love is a flower, you got to let it, you got to let it grow

Verse 2
                         C         G6+4  Am
So keep on playing those mind games    together
             Fmaj7             D7
Faith in the future, outta the now
                             C   G6+4   Am
You just can't beat on those mind    guerrilla
         Fmaj7                           D7
Absolute elsewhere in the stones of your mind
                         C         G6+4  Am
Yeah we're playing those mind games    forever
               Fmaj7                  D7
Projecting our images in space and in time

Bridge 2
C   D      G           Em             D7
Yes is the answer, and you know that, for sure
C   D  G              Em                               D7
Yes is surrender, you got to let it, you got to let it go

Verse 3
                         C         G6+4  Am
So keep on playing those mind games    together
          Fmaj7               D7
Doing the ritual dance in the sun
            C   G6+4   Am
Millions of mind    guerrillas
              Fmaj7                    D7
Putting their soul power to the karmic wheel
                      C         G6+4  Am
Keep on playing those mind games    forever
            Fmaj7               D7
Raising the spirit of peace and love

Coda
C G6+4 Am Fmaj7 D7
Love
              C        G6+4  Am
I want you to make love, not war

I know you've heard it before

About the artist behind Mind Games:

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.
