This is my first tab.  Let me know how you like it.  Listen to the CD to find the
but I'll do my best to put it in wehre I can.  I really hope you guys enjoy it.  I feel pretty
about it, it being my first tab.  So, good luck and enjoy.


So I don't really know the names of these chords, but here are the fingerings for the
used.  I have them separated below so that you know when to play each note, but go ahead
play it to your liking if you think it's different, which it might just be.

Into

I tried to follow the rhythm for the intro and the chorus.  I'm also going to post a
version of the song with just the fingering for the verses, and you can use those to figure
the rhythm for yourself using  the CD or if you can find the song online.

Verse 1

This is how the rhythm or strumming sounds to me.  I don't really know how to show
it is strum up or down on the comp, so just do what's comfortable to you I guess.  
I'm
to post a simpler version with just the fingering and use the either the CD, an online 
of the song, or your own judgment to figure out the rhythm.  I find that most
think it is played differently anyway.  Good luck and enjoy.

Lyrics

"Beautiful Surprise" by India Arie

"It's like yesterday, i didn't even know your name
Now today, you're always on my mind
I never could have predicted that i'd feel this way

You are a beautiful surprise

Intoxicating everytime i hear your voice
You get me on a natural high
Its almost like I didnt even have a choice

You are a beautiful surprise

What ever it is you came to teach me
I am here to learn it cause
I believe that we are written in the stars
And i dont know what the future holds,
But I'm living in the moment
And im thankful for the man that you are (you are)
You are everything that i asked for in my prayers
So i know my angels brought you to my life
Your energy is healing to my soul

You are a beautiful surprise

You are inspiration to my life
You are the reason why i smile

You are a beautiful surprise"
