Tabbed by: Dami (Dee Ay)
Email: dademidun@gmail.com

Tuning: Half step down (Eb for 6th string instead of E etc. for other strings)

Important notes for learning this song more effectively and quickly located at end of
tab. I would advise looking there now/before attempting to play the tab. Full lyrics also
posted at the end.

Chord structures used:
 D  *A   Bmin   G2   G   F#
-2- -0-  -2-    -3- -3- -2-
-3- -2-  -3-    -3- -3- -2-
-2- -2-  -4-    -4- -0- -3-
-0- -2-  -4-    -5- -0- -4-
-x- -0-  -2-    -5- -2- -4-
-x- -x-  -x-    -3- -3- -2-
*Alejandro of Boyce Avenue chooses to play the A chord by barring with his index finger,
probably since transition to Bmin is more easy to do in this way
-----------> Bmin, G2, & F# also = barre chords


Opening/Intro chords (Before finger picking starts):
D            A
I don't know why
               Bmin
You think that you could hold me
         G2                     D
When you couldn't get by by yourself
                 A
And I don't know who

                   Bmin             G2
Would ever want to tear the seam of someone's dream


Verse (Play twice):
e|----------------------------------------|

Pre-chorus chords:
   G                A
...said goodbye, my whole world shines


Chorus:
D                A               Bmin             A
It's a beautiful day and I can't stop myself from smiling
       G                  D
If I'm drinking, then I'm buying
      G               D    A
And I know there's no denying
D                A               Bmin            A
It's a beautiful day, the sun is up, and music's playing
         G             D
And even if it started raining
          G                D
You won't hear this boy complaining
           G                    F#           Bmin
'Cause I'm glad that you're the one who got away
A
Yeah, it's a beautiful day

Pre-Chorus Chords:
     G               A
This fire inside, it burns too bright
                G                             A           D
I don't want to say "so long", I just want to say "goodbye"

D A Bmin A G D G D A D A Bmin A G D G D G F# Bmin A


Bridge + Ending:
              G               D
'Cause if you ever think I'll take up
        G                    D
My time with thinking of our break-up
             G2          F#                Bmin
Then, you've got another thing coming your way
A                       D   A Bmin
'Cause it's a beautiful day

G2           D
Oh beautiful day
    A                         Bmin
Oh, baby, any day that you're gone away
G2               D
It's a beautiful day



/ = slide
^ = pull-off (in the case of 3^2 you're pulling off and should be hearing the 2 since it
is assumed you are barring at 2nd fret [Bmin position])
t = Alejandro used thumb for this note (However, it  can be played in normal F# position
if more comfortable)


NOTES:

1) To make this easier for yourself, watch the cover on YouTube and realize how many of
the chord structures can be manipulated/used to play the verses and interludes much more
easily...i.e in the start of the verse notice how the finger picking can be done in the 
D position for the first 3 notes or so, and the next in the A position, etc.

2) Notes in the fingerpicking sections that are identically placed in the spacing but on
different strings indicate that the notes are played at the same time, not separately.
So be aware that sometimes you'll come across 2 notes on different strings played at the 
same time based on how the tab spacing is and this is intentional (it is not an error).

3) If you can't play the bass notes repetitively on the beat along with the other stuff
going on for Verse 2 and Interlude 2, just play what was done in Verse 1 and Interlude 1
since that still works well and is easier


LYRICS:
I don't know why
You think that you could hold me
When you couldn't get by by yourself
And I don't know who
Would ever want to tear the seam of someone's dream
Baby, it's fine, you said that we should just be friends
While I came up with that line and I'm sure
That it's for the best
If you ever change your mind, don't hold your breath

Pre Chorus
'Cause you may not believe
That baby, I'm relieved
When you said goodbye, my whole world shines

Chorus
Oh Oh Oh Oh
It's a beautiful day and I can't stop myself from smiling
If I'm drinking, then I'm buying
And I know there's no denying
It's a beautiful day, the sun is up, and music's playing
And even if it started raining
You won't hear this boy complaining
'Cause I'm glad that you're the one that got away
Yeah, It's a beautiful day

It's my turn to fly, so girls, get in line
'Cause I'm easy, no playing this guy like a fool
Now I'm alright
Might've had me caged before, but not tonight

Pre Chorus
And you may not believe
That baby, I'm relieved
This fire inside, it burns too bright
I don't want to say "so long", I just want to say "goodbye"

Chorus
Hey hey hey
It's a beautiful day and I can't stop myself from smiling
If I'm drinking, then I'm buying
And I know there's no denying
It's a beautiful day, the sun is up, and music's playing
And even if it started raining
You won't hear this boy complaining
'Cause I'm glad that you're the one who got away

'Cause if you ever think I'll take up
My time with thinking of our break-up
Then, you've got another thing coming your way
'Cause it's a beautiful day
Beautiful day
Oh, baby, any day that you're gone away
It's a beautiful day

Great Tab. 5 stars! Thanks! However, I do have a small correction;

Verse 2 (Play twice):
e|------------------------------------------------|
B|--------3-----------3/2---------3-----------5/7-|
G|-----2-----------2-----------4-----------0------|
D|--0--0--0--0------------------------------------|
A|--------------0--0--0--0--2--2--2--2-----------0|
E|--------------------------------------3--3--3---|

Don't forget to play an open A after the 5/7 slide then repeat :)
