After seeing a couple of posting regarding the chords to Imagination
I decided to try my hand at figuring them out because neither of the
versions I saw worked.  I don't know if the writers guitars were out
of tune or what, but they definately are not the chords that EC is
playing on the recording.  So at the risk of being severly flamed I
will post my version of the chords.  I don't think they are perfect
at least it will sound like the same song.

          D                                                   G
So you're trying to make connection, you heard whispers in the hall
          D     F#m      Bm                 D     Dm      G
She'll be out again this evening, when you come around to call
        D       F#m      Bm                D                 A#
So, you dodge the lady-killer, who came creepin' 'cross the floor
          D     F#m     Bm                  D         Dm      G
The you caught up in a whirlwind, you got blown right out the door
                   D                                   A#
Oh, yes it was a whirlwind, sweet romance was on your side
D                            G
If you wanna dance on my face, you must tell me why you lied
D  F#m  Bm          G        D
Imagination is a powerful deceiver
         F#m       Bm              C          G
When you try to believe her just a little too much
D  F#m  Bm         G         D
Imagination is a powerful deceiver
         G         D            G          D
I'll go out of my mind, if I'm losing your touch

Then the second part is the same as the first, except for the ending.
The weird thing about this song is that while it sounds like it doesn't
flow right on the recording, when you are playing and singing the tune
it sounds perfect, and it's tons of fun to play.  If these chords work
for you, experiment with adding in the bass line, you will find that
much of the bass line can be played without having to use alternate
fingerings for the chords.
