[Verse 1]
 F                                        Em7   A  Dm
Sun is shining in the sky, there ain't a cloud in sight,
               G               Em            A
It's stopped raining, every - body's in the play,
               Bb            C11          F              C
And don't you know, it's a beautiful new day?  Hey, ey - ey!


[Verse 2]
   F                                 Em7    A     Dm
Running down the avenue, see how the sun shines brightly,
        G             Em                    A
In the city, on the streets where once was pity,
     Bb          C11              F              C
Mr. Blue Sky is living here to - day!  Hey, ey - ey!


[Chorus]
Dm          Dm/C               Bbmaj7          F/A           Gm

I was initially going to include something for that final ending, but, as you said, it's a bit trickier and wouldn't work too well on guitar alone. With most of us not having the resource of a choir and orchestra I felt the first part of the coda sequence was long enough. Thank you very much anyway for that extended coda sequence.
Cheers, DJ
