I Can Only Imagine
Words and Music by Bart Millard

Intro - E  Emaj7  Asus2 - 2X
           E    Emaj7
I can only imagine What it will be like
When I walk By your side
           E    Emaj7
I can only imagine What my eyes will see
When your face Is before me
           E    Emaj7
I can only imagine

Repeat first verse

  Asus2                      B
Surrounded by Your glory, what will my heart feel
Will I dance for you Jesus or in awe of you be still
       Asus2                           B
Will I stand in your presence or to my knees will I fall
Will I sing hallelujah, will I be able to speak at all
           Asus2 B              E    E7
I can only imagine   I can only imagine

           E    Emaj7
I can only imagine When that day comes
And I find myself Standing in the Son
           E    Emaj7
I can only imagine When all I will do
Is forever Forever worship You
           E    Emaj7
I can only imagine I can only imagine

Chorus 2X

I can only imagine  5X

           E    Emaj7
I can only imagine When all I will do
Is forever Forever worship You
           E    Emaj7
I can only imagine I can only imagine

I would have to agree that the E7 should be a Emaj7 so
I have now changed it. You will have to forgive me for
when I tabbed this song I was limited to what I was able
to play and to me, at the time the E7 sounded close enough,
so I went with it. But now I am much better and can play
everywhere up and down the fretboard and I can hear the
difference much better now. To add to it I think when playing
along with a piano it sounds better playing the E and Emaj7
at the 7th fret barre chords. It is now changed and I welcome
comments, that's what makes us better.

Hey guys after you play the E-Emaj7,
instead of playing just Asus2 all the
way through till the next E-Emaj7.
Try playing A:002200 to Amaj:002120.
And that's only for the verses.
Everything else is great.
Just thought I would share my oppinion
too because this is the way I play it.
God Bless!!!!

Very good tab. However, it is two steps too high. The original is done in D. You will need to tune your guitar down to open D or transpose up to D, G and A to replace the E, A and B.

Otherwise, great job and thank you for posting!

Maybe another version but this one is correct.
-rawood | 9/16/2005
the tab is incorrect and i have never tabbed before but i will attempt it later.but just for the very beginning its A minor position with pinky finger on E string third fret and slide up two frets.use A string open and strum down,when you get to the imagine in the lyrics it changes to D string 4th fret(index finger)A string 5th fret(middle finger)B string 5th fret (ring finger)G string 6th fret(pinky finger).I will tab this all out later with chord names,today is thanksgiving so my time is limited.
