Intro: main riff - x2 -

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


F 	Am      Dm    F 
Imagine all the people
G      C     G7  
Living for today


C 	Cmaj7 	   F
Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
No greed or hunger
And no religion too


F 	Am      Dm    F 
Imagine all the people
G      C     G7  
Living life in peace


C - Cmaj7 - E - 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    C
And the world will live as one


C 	Cmaj7 	   F
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
Nothing to kill or die for
A brotherhood of man


F 	Am      Dm    F 
Imagine all the people
G      C     G7  
Sharing all the world


C - Cmaj7 - E - 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    C
And the world will live as one

I played this song for my little sisters funeral, she was 11 and this was her favorite song in the world. Please pray that Kiera made it to heaven, she was hit by a car and 2 days later passed away.

Bailey

Oh gee I am truly sorry to hear that

LittleDreamer

I know

Emma

Rohana Wilson

Aww I’m really sorry to heard that. My love goes out to you and your family xxx

peppa

Livie

Same with me

Chi

So so sorry to hear! Send my love to you and your family

Laie

I know you know I’m sorry. But I want you to know that I will think of her every time I play this song. I want you to know that my love for you both is infinate. I don’t need to meet you to know that.

LittleDreamer

I am truly sorry I am crying

Livie

I am so, so sorry to hear that! As soon as I read this, I started crying. Praying for you and your family

laurenvo

so sorry, im sure Kiera is very proud of you

Chi

When it says “you may say I’m a dreamer” instead of playing C, Cmaj, E E7 I play F G C E7. I hope that this is helpful, that’s just what I think sounds right

LittleDreamer

i love this song!

persian.ukuleleist

if anyone is wondering about the riff..
you read a riff chart like a book (left to right) the dashes arent the frets their just spaces in between. the numbers are the frets

Laie

Strumming pattern for the pickup of the song? I use down strums for the slow bits, but I’m not sure what to use for the faster parts :/

persian.ukuleleist

keep doing the riff until the, imagine all the people part

Aubree Bingham

The lyrics in this are in the wrong order

MissAivil

yea… “no need for greed or hunger” and “nothing to kill or die for” should be switched…

Ukulelequeen13

For “above us only sky”,”no religion too” I play an Em. It sounds really pretty. And for “a brotherhood of man” I play an A

Mila

For the ‘imagine all the people..’ I do plucking down from g to a and for the chorus + pre-chorus I do F/ am/ dm/ etc.

makaylasilva

Personally, i think +7 is slightly easier! :)
Just an FYI, “No need for greed or hunger,” and “Nothing to kill or die for” actually is sung later on towards the end of the original. Other than that, it was very helpful!

heres/the/tab

In the song for the piano intro i do this on my uke– :)
