The other tabs I saw for this song only seemed to match the higher key used in Across The Universe, so I made my own. These are the more accurate chords that go with the original Beatles and Glee versions.

The chorus seems a little odd just from the "A" key but the rest seems fine, though.

About this song

"I Want to Hold Your Hand" is a song by the English pop rock band The Beatles. Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, and recorded in October 1963, it was the first Beatles record to be made using four-track equipment. McCartney and Lennon did not have any particular inspiration for the song. Instead, they had received specific instructions from manager Brian Epstein to write a song with the American market in mind.
