Artist: The Beatles

Song: Across The Universe (Album Version)

Music & Lyrics By: Lennon and McCartney

Album: Let It Be

Tabbed By: Nicholas Kent (nk_uofg@hotmail.com)

Intro Tabbed By: Chris (cts@mail.utexas.edu)

Hey, whats up everyone? This is my first tab attempt, so bare with me here.

I recently heard a cover to this Beatles song which made me want to learn

how to play it. But when I looked around "Olga.net" for the tab I realized

the present versions were all wrong. I recently saw an old interview (from

the 80's) with Paul McCartney and he was going through the chord

progressions for various Beatles songs and this happened to be one of them.

So......here are the correct chords (I think Paul is right considering he

wrote the song) and intro (not to sure about the intro, but I can guarentee

the chords are correct)

Note: I took the intro from previous tab attempts cause it's the closest

I've heard so far, but any corrections are welcome.

*Standard Tuning*

(I think the original song is played in C# or their is a capo being used,

but I don't have one...... so figure out where to put it yourself)
