Blue Sunny Day by Jonathan Coulton

Just a note about the '/' chords as the chord name seems to be misunderstood 
or misused quite frequently. These are chords which are standard chords played 
with an alternate note in the bass. So the chord goes before the / and the 
note after the / is the bass note added. So as you notice Bm/A contains a 
Bm triad in a different order, also known as an inversion, so you have F# 
which is the 5th (the 4th fret on the D string), then B which is the 
root (the 4th fret on the G string), then D which is the minor third (the 3rd 
fret on the B string). This then allows the added bass note to be at the 
bottom, which in this case is the open A string.  
Hopefully that made sense and was a little helpful but anyway, on to the song:

Capo on 2nd fret

|C     |C     |

C                G               Am               E
Early light that burns my eyes, A minute more the sun will rise
    F                     C               G (Fig. 1)
And paint the bright blue sky with yellow gold
C             G              Am              E
I'll be dead asleep by then, Shut up in this box again
  Bm7b5   E      Bm7b5   E
Until it's gone, Outside I can hear it

A                  Bm/A             C#m/A          D/A
Birds are singing, bees are buzzing, sun shines overhead
A               Bm/A        C#m/A             D/A   A  Em7
I'd be there to see it but I can't get out of bed
C                 Dm7               C                 F/D
Since the day you left the weather always feels this way
         Amaj7       Cmaj7/A   D       Bm7b5
One more blue            sunny day

Am  Em7

C              G            Am              E
Looking for an easy mark, I hit the Denny's after dark
    F             C                G (Fig 1)
And take a lonely waitress home to drink
C                  G                  Am               E
She's sincere, but halfway through, I find I'm wishing she was you
   Bm7b5      E       Bm7b5      E
My blood goes cold, I guess this date is over

A             Bm/A          C#m/A    D/A
Several hours later I'm the only one awake
A                     Bm/A             C#m/A     D/A       A  Em7
All these streets are empty, it's just me and my mistake
C              Dm7             C                  F/D
One by one the stars go out as black sky turns to gray
         Amaj7       Cmaj7/A   D       Bm7b5
One more blue            sunny day      Sometimes I see how long

I can wait
Am7                       D9
  Tempting disaster by my garden gate
Bm7b5                       Amaj7
My trembling hand's on the cellar door
Am7            D7       B7            E
 Trying not to think of what it is I'm waiting

F       C         Dm7     E   A  Bm/A  C#m/A

Am  Em7

C                 G             Am             E
All at once I've had enough, As if I'm made of sterner stuff
  F                 C           G (Fig 1)
I take a breath and open up the door
C                    G                Am              E
Dawn breaks hard and falls on me, For just one moment I can see
    Bm7b5     E      Bm7b5    E
The pale blue sky, I close my eyes because

    A                     Bm/A        C#m/A        D/A
The world's so bright and beautiful I have to look away
A                  Bm/A       C#m/A          D/A    A  Em7
Braced against the beauty of another perfect day
C          Dm7            C               F/D
As I go to pieces and the breeze blows me away
         Amaj7       Cmaj7/A   D       Bm7b5
One more blue            sunny day

What a song right? enjoy,
