Howdy y'all. Thought I'd update the tab for this very underrated song a little. I think the bridge is really elegant: 'And the world is joy'. Maybe it's just the harpsichord. Like a lot of Kinks songs, there is more going on here than meets the ear, so this is just a guess.

Rather than going straight to the D7, I feel like it sounds better to go to a D and then to a D7.
