Colin Hay - Beautiful World


Tabbed by Wayne Dipper (wdipper@gmail.com).
Credit to BigBaws for the start.. he was mainly just missing the transition chords.



[Intro]
 - G   Dsus  D   G
(by the way.. every transition is the "Dsus D" combo before the next chord)


[Verse 1]
G      D                   G   Dsus  D
My my my its a beautiful world
Cadd9     D             G   Dsus  D
I like swimming in the sea
Cadd9             D                  Em7  Dsus  D
I like to go out beyond the white breakers
Cadd9    D                Em7                    Dsus  D
Where a man can still be free or a woman if you are one
Cadd9    D              G   Dsus  D
I like swimming in the sea


[Verse 2]
G      D                   G   Dsus  D
My my my its a beautiful world
Cadd9     D            G   Dsus  D
I like drinking Irish tea
Cadd9                D       Em7    Dsus  D      
With a little bit of Lapsan su Chang
Cadd9     D           G   Dsus  D
I like making my own tea


[Verse 3]
G      D                   G   Dsus  D
My my my its a beautiful world
Cadd9     D           G   Dsus  D
I like driving in my car
Cadd9           D              Em7               Dsus  D
I roll the top down sometimes I travel quite far
Cadd9        D     Em7                    Dsus  D
Drive to the ocean stare up at the stars
Cadd9     D           G
I like driving in my car


[Chorus/bridge]
Em7            Cadd9 D           G
All around is anger,  automatic guns
Em7            Cadd9                  D                    G
Death in large numbers no respect for women or our little ones
Em7              Cadd9  D                 G
Tried talking to Jesus but he just put me on hold
Em7                       G
Said he'd been swamped by calls this week 
       Cadd9               D                  Dsus  D
And he could not shake his coooooooooooold


[Verse 4]
G          D            G   Dsus  D
Still this emptiness persists
Cadd9           D              G   Dsus  D
Perhaps this is as good as it gets
Cadd9                      D              Em7             Dsus  D
When you've given up the drink and those nasty cigarettes
Cadd9               D      Em7                   Dsus  D
Now leave the party early at least with no regrets
Cadd9              D           Em7                    Dsus  D
I watch the sun as it comes up I watch it as it sets
Cadd9        D               G    Dsus  D
Yeah this is as good as it gets


[Verse 5]
G      D                   G   Dsus  D
My my my its a beautiful world
Cadd9      D           G   Dsus  D
I like sleeping with Marie


Cadd9           D    Em7               Dsus  D
She is one sexy girl - full of mystery
Cadd9                D       Em7                Dsus  D
She says she doesn't love me but likes my company
Cadd9          D                G    Dsus  D
For now that's good enough for me


[Verse 6]
G      D                   G   Dsus  D
My my my its a beautiful world
Cadd9      D            G   Dsus  D
I like swimming in the sea
Cadd9             D                  Em7  Dsus  D
I like to go out beyond the white breakers
Cadd9    D                 Em7                Dsus  D
Where a man can still be free or a woman if you are one
Cadd9      D            G   Dsus  D
I like swimming in the sea
