A pdf copy of it would be copyrighted by Hal Leonard (and/or Chicago)... can't you buy the books and support music publishing?
I hear ya... times are tough.
Lots of musicians are unemployed because no one pays for music anymore. Producers want a 5-6 piece band instead of 20, so 14 guys are still waiters. 20 - 25 years ago when I was a jazz studies music major in college we jokingly called it "pre-unemployment" (like pre-med, or pre-law). Kind of a gallows humor.
I understand you are broke, but somewhere in the back of your mind keep the thought that if no one buys music, then musicians (and publishers, producers, composers, arrangers, etc..) don't make any money. If you don't make any money then you have to go do something to make a living. The next thing you know we will have generations of people that think a guy jumping up and down on a stage grabbing his crotch and yelling into a microphone is music (overdubbed on his pirated "samples" - OY!)
Being a musician myself, it's important to me that my fellow artists, writers, transcribers, publishers, etc. all have the benefit of being rewarded for their respective efforts. I respect their source of income, just as they respect mine.
Sorry, but nothing personal.

I'm willing to pay for the PDF but I don't need the entire book. Would sell me just the Beginnings song?
Hal Leonard will... $25
Boy kids are sure different today....they want it all ready to play and go.
I remember hours of joy locked in my room playing along to records. No need for anything than my trumpet and my ears. Wore the grooves off of all those Chicago records. When I started working in cover bands the charts were already there in my head . Oh well the digital age does have it's merits I suppose too
