    Can anyone give me the chords for the Beatles Revolution?

    In the key that is on the recording? Well that's what's giving me trouble, seems as if they're tuned like 1/4 step down.

    I get the verse - B E B E F#

    The prechorus is giving me trouble -

    But when you talk about destruction

    Don't you know that you can count me out


    I get the chorus too B E F.

    Doesn't help that it seems like Paul slides into every note.

    Thanks in advance. ;)

    Don't need the full tab just the chords would be good, I can build off of those.

    It sounds like you're talking about the hard-rocking single version. Several of their songs were intentionally mastered at a slightly different speed than they were recorded at, so the keys aren't always dead on. This one, like you say, is halfway between Bb and B.

    Anyway, in B, the chords for the prechorus are:
    |C#m |E |C#m |A B G# | (1/2) |F# |

    That (1/2) is just an extra half measure of G#
