Capo 1 to match recorded pitch

For many of these I suggest reaching the thumb over instead of doing a barre. 
Whatever is comfortable.
Also, you can substitute the standard version of these chords and it sounds fine.

I hope you're happy
I hope you're happy now
I hope you're happy how you
Hurt your cause forever
  Bb                    B
I hope you think you're clever

I hope you're happy
I hope you're happy too
I hope you're proud how you
Would grovel in submission
   A                Bb
To feed your own ambition 

Bbmaj7                   Dmaj7
So though I can't imagine how 
I hope you're happy right now

Something has changed within me

I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game

Too late for second-guessing

Too late to go back to sleep
     Bb       C
It's time to trust my instincts

Close my eyes and leap

It's time to try

I think I'll try
F       G
Defying gravity

Well, if that's love
            F               G
It comes at much too high a cost 

I'd sooner buy
  F     G
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye

I'm defying gravity
And you can't pull me down...

Glinda, come with me. Think of what we could do - together.

Dreams the way we planned them
C             F
If we work in tandem
Bbsus2/F            C#maj7  (Bbsus2/F)
There's no fight we cannot win

And you don't live to regret it

I hope you're happy in the end

I hope you're happy, my friend

So if you care to find me
F* (F)
Look to the western sky
C          G
As someone told me lately
F          F*                   Bb
Ev'ryone deserves the chance to fly
           C            Bb
And if I'm flying solo
               C         Bb
At least I'm flying free
To those who'd ground me
       Bb                G
Take a message back from me

Tell them how I
     F     G
Am defying gravity!
I'm flying high
  F     G
Defying gravity!
              Am             F*
And soon I'll match them in renown
    C         F*
And nobody in all of Oz
   C                 F*
No wizard that there is or was
   F          G        Am
Is ever gonna bring me down! (I hope you're happy)
[Look at her she's wicked! Get her!]
Bring me down!
[No one mourns the wicked]
           F  G  G#    B   C
[So we've got to bring her down!]
