Then the third verse as previous, first four lines picked as per the tab, last 2 lines strummed:

[F#]   Imagine [F#maj7/Bb]no       po[B]ssessions [Badd2]

[F#]   I [F#maj7/Bb]wonder     [B]if you[Badd2]     can
[F#]   No need for [F#maj7/Bb]greed or   [B]hunger  [Badd2]
[F#]   A brother[F#maj7/Bb]hood of    [B]man  [Badd2]
B* Ebm G#m G#m7
Imagine all the people

[C#7]Sharing [C#sus4]all of the [C#7]world

The last part repeats twice, but strummed instead of picked as before. The song is
building up here so for more volume use the second version of "B", and leave out
Badd2. After the "F#7" which joins the two parts, the volume diminishes until you
get to the last two lines which are picked as per the tab:

B* C# F# Bb7
You may say that I'm a dreamer

B* C# F# Bb7
But I'm not the only one

B* C# F# Bb7
I hope some day you'll join us

B* C# F# F#7
And the world will live as one


B* C# F# Bb7
You may say that I'm a dreamer

B* C# F# Bb7
But I'm not the only one

[B]   [Badd2]   I hope some [C#]day you'll [F#]join us  [Bb7]

[B]   [Badd2]   And the [C#]world will [F#]live as one
