Bm      B
        Drag myself from my bed
G#m     C#
        Around 20 past 6
Bm      B
Get my kids up make breakfast
G#m           C#
1 egg 2 toast 3 weetabix
Bm            B
and as i sit down i look up
G#m                              C#
and your standing in the doorway sun at your back
       B
in my old brown dressing gown
                 D        C#
Well no one can love you more than i love you now, but i

Bm     B
Gotta go running for the bus
G#m                                       C#
Coat flying and i try not to miss it this time
Bm                B
but the drivers waiting and thats strange
G#m                   C#
kids on the top deck quiet for a change
Bm                  B
and theres no rain and no roadworks in the
G#m           C#            B
bus lane and all my hurts run away
         C#
and im smiling as im punching in

F#         C#                    B         C#
the day i died was the best day of my life
F#         C#                    B         C#
the day i died was the best day of my life
F#                     C#
tell my friends and my kids and my wife
B               C#
everything will be alright
F#         C#                    B         C#
the day i died was the best day of my life

now the secretaries they got a smile for me
and the intray on my desks almost empty
I get a memo from executive joe
saying Rob the gob is getting kicked out
for embezzling funds from the company account
and id be lying if i said i wasnt chuffed
cos i always hated rob
and now they'll probbaly offer me robs old job

and in the park at lunch
theres no whinos on my favourite bench
none of that drunk chatter none of that pissy stench
and the 20 little piegeons with the gammy leg
decide to dine from someone elses sandwich instead
and theres something about the city today
like all the colours conspire to overwhelm the grey
and this close to the fire i can feel no cold
but a rainbow halo around my soul

the day i died was the best day of my life
the day i died was the best day of my life
tell my friends and my kids and my wife
everything will be alright
the day i died was the best day of my life

      F#                     D#
so i leave work get to the high street and i miss my bus
          G#                    D#m
should i wait for another no i cant be arsed
         C#
i begin to walk
                G#                           D#m
and rush hour crowd seem to part like the red sea
                        C#
and im stopping at the offy
                                   F#
20 cigerettes and a 6 pack to relax me
and as i cross back over the street
i guess i never saw that taxi

D#m   F#   C#   G# (2x)

i guess i never saw that taxi

D#m   F#   C#   G# (2x)

dudududuududududud!

the day i died was the best day of my life
the day i died was the best day of my life
tell my friends and my kids and my wife
everything will be alright
the day i died was the best day of my life

F#            C#         B#                      C#
now i got 99 red ballons floating in the summer sky
F#            C#         B#                      C#
i got 99 red ballons drifiting past my dreamy eyes
F#            C#         B#                      C#
i got 99 red ballons floating in the summer sky
F#            C#         B#          C#       F#
i got 99 red ballons drfting past my dying eyes

what you've done is do it 2 keys to high. Like doing the original (below) with a capo on the 2nd fret. It's E A F#m B for the verse. At the end of each of the 2nd verses it's A B A (E A F#m B A B). The chorus is E B A B and the bridge is C#m G#m B F#m.
