This is Across the universe as I believe John originally played it.  The 
song was sped up for inclusion on the World Wildlife Fund album (as heard on 
Past Masters volume II), and then slowed down again for the Let It Be album. 
When Phil Spector (producer of Let It Be) slowed the song down, he actually 
brought the song down a half step; from D to roughly C#.  You can play along 
with the album by playing in C#, tuning your guitar down a half step and  
playing in D, or using a capo on the first fret and playing in C.  Marc  
Hertzberg's transcription can show you how to play it in C.  Here it is in  
original form...

Subject: TAB: Across The Universe (Lennon/McCartney) 

Don't hold me to these words... they're only there to put some chords to! 
For the authentic sound, capo at the first fret. 
 
              Marc 
 
P.S. In case you're interested, I play the '8' note on the first string with 
     me thumb.
