Accross the Universe

John Lennon / Paul McCartney


D                 h
Words are flowing out like endless
f#
rain into a paper cup
     e7                          A
They slither wildly as they slip away
           A7
across the universe

D                h
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are
f#
drifting through my opened mind
  e7             g
Possessing and caressing me

D             A7sus4
Jai guru deva om
[: A                         A7
   Nothing's gonna change my world
   G                         D
   Nothing's gonna change my world :]

D         h
Images of broken light which
f#                             e7
dance before me like a million eyes
                        A            A7
They call me on and on across the universe
D                h
Thoughts meander like a restless
f#
wind inside a letterbox
     e7
They tumble blindly as they make their
A              A7
way across the universe

D             A7sus4
Jai guru deva om
[: A                         A7
   Nothing's gonna change my world
   G                         D
   Nothing's gonna change my world :]

D                   h
Sounds of laughter, shades of life are
f#
ringing through my opened ears
  e7           g
Inciting and inviting me

D            h
Limitless, undying love which
f#                              e7
shines around me like a million suns
                        A            A7
And calls me on and on across the universe

D             A7sus4
Jai guru deva om
[: A                         A7
   Nothing's gonna change my world
   G                         D
   Nothing's gonna change my world :]
