[D]Words are flowing [Bm]out like endless [F#m]rain into a paper cup
[Em7]They slither while they pass they slip [A]away across the Uni[A7]verse.
[D]Pools of sorrow, [Bm]waves of joy are [F#m]drifting through my opened mind
[Em7]Possessing and ca[Gm]ressing me.
[D]Jai Guru Deva [A7sus4]Om
[A7]Nothing's gonna change my world
[G]Nothing's gonna change my [D]world
[A7]Nothing's gonna change my world
[G]Nothing's gonna change my [D]world
[D]Images of [Bm]broken light which [F#m]dance before me like a million [Em7]eyes
They call me on and on a[A]cross the Universe.[A7]
[D]Thoughts meander [Bm]like a restless [F#m]wind inside a letterbox
They [Em7]tumble blindly as they make their [A]way across the Uni[A7]verse.
[D]Jai Guru De Va [A7sus4]Om
[A7]Nothing's gonna change my world
[G]Nothing's gonna change my [D]world
[A7]Nothing's gonna change my world
[G]Nothing's gonna change my [D]world
[D]Sounds of laughter, [Bm]shades of earth are [F#m]ringing through my opened ears
[Em7]Inciting and [Gm]inviting me.
[D]Limitless, un[Bm]dying love which [F#m]shines around me like a million [Em7]suns
And calls me on and on a[A]cross the Uni[A7]verse.
( Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/beatles/across_the_universe_crd_ver_2.html )
[D]Jai Guru Deva [A7sus4]Om
[A7]Nothing's gonna change my world
[G]Nothing's gonna change my [D]world
[A7]Nothing's gonna change my world
[G]Nothing's gonna change my [D]world
[D]Jai Guru Deva. (Repeat)

Wo[C]rds are flowing [Am]out like endless r[Em]ain into a paper cup

Nothing's gonna change my world
No[F]thing's gonna change my w[C]orld
No[G]thing's gonna change my world
No[F]thing's gonna change my w[C]orld
