BEAUTIFUL DAY - Lee DeWyze


This is American Idol Series 9 winner Lee DeWyze's cover of U2's 2001 hit 
Beautiful Day. This is a great song, by a great artist.


                A     Bm     D     G               
 The heart is a bloom,       
 D                 A
 Shoots up through the stony ground,
                A     Bm     D     G
 But there's no room, 
 D                A
 No space to rent in this town,

               A     Bm     D     G
 You're out of luck, 
 D                              A
 And the reason that you had to care,
                A     Bm     D     G       
 The traffic is stuck, 
 D                        A
 And you're not movin' anywhere.
                           A     Bm     D     G
 You thought you'd found a friend, 
 D                       A
 To take you out of this place,
             A     Bm     D     G     
 Someone you could lend a hand,  
 D             A
 In return for grace.

 It's a beautiful day,
 Sky falls, you feel like, 
 It's a beautiful day,
 Don't let it get away.


(Repeat Riff 1)


 You're on the road,
 But you've got no destination,
 You're in the mud,
 In the maze of her imagination,

 You love this town,
 Even if it doesn't ring true,
 You've been all over,
 And it's been all over you.


(Repeat Riff 2)


 It's a beautiful day,
 Don't let it get away,
 It's a beautiful day.

 F#m      G   D               A          
 Touch me,    take me to that other place.
 F#m          G   D                A
 Teach me now,    I know I'm not a hopeless case.


(Repeat Riff 1)


 Em
 See the world in green and blue,
 D
 See China right in front of you,
 Em              G
 See the canyons broken my cloud,
 D
 See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out,
 Em              G  
 See the Bedouin fires at night,
 D         
 See the olis fields at first light, 
     Em                  G
 And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth,
 D
 After the flood all the colours came out.
 

(Repeat Riff 2)


 It was a beautiful day,
 Don't let it get away,
 Beautiful Day

 F#m      G   D                A
 Reach me,    i know i'm not a hopeless case .

          A          Bm        D           G
 What you don't have you don't need it now,
          D                  A
 What you don't know you can feel it somehow,
          A          Bm        D           G
 What you don't have you don't need it now,
           D           A
 You don't need it now, 

 Was a beautiful day...
