This is my first ever time writing a tab. Mainly because the other dear diary song is in chord
form when Stephen Lynch did his gig live, so I tried to tab this by ear. 
Took me a while... so go easy :D

As an example for lyrics I've written in the first time Stephen Lynch sings it on the album.
Enjoy. Feedback is welcome because I'm only a novice guitarist! :D

  Dear Diary, today was a good day
C             Em
  Papa and I picked wild flowers
C                     Em
  Mama joined and we lay in the sunshine
C                   Em
  Then we sang and danced for hours
