This song has several "themes" which are very
harmonious and are sequenced troughout the song.
Once you get these themes, there's nothing to
the song. Houser showed me this one so its accurate.

Theme 1:
  /  /   /  /  /  /  /  /   /  /  /  /
  G    F       C     G      F

Verse 1:
G         F           C              G       F
Beautiful, the girl's cooking in the diner today
        G              F
Oh, she won't show the bother,
     C             G          F
Even time she gets covered in blues

Theme 2, taking the song a little darker:
you will hold the same chord shape, letting it flow. . .

Theme 2:
  /  /  /  /   /  /  /  /
  G     Eb     C     Bb

       G           Eb
I sing kind little songs
C         Bb             G   Eb   C   Bb
Trying to bait her soul
          G    Eb      C
And she's like natural music
   Eb      G      Eb   C   Bb
Anyway she moves

back to Theme 1

Verse 2:
Oh in time, time, time, I just love to watch her hands move
A little sugar, pepper,
Little brother wants to shine my shoes
   (move to Theme 2)
Go ahead, shine, shine, shine, I'll sit real still
And my backbone shivers as she looks this way
And I try not to move

She's beautiful - natural
Hangin in the diner basking in the light of Ms. Lee

Verse 2 (original lyrics):
Given time, Lord I'd build her a mountain for a room.
Given an hour, an hour, I'd build a rocket to the moon.
   (move to Theme 2)
Might take at least a week to find the strongest tool
Might take the rest of this lifetime
To find the strongest fuel

But she natural, she take the moon and put it in her pocket
She's beautiful, smiling it on me while I build this rocket

Jam section:
   /  /  /  /    /  /  /  /  x3  /  /  /  /    /  /  /  /
  (D7)  (D#7)   (Bb7) (G)       (D7)  (D#7)   (F7)  (G7)

Solo in F penatonic (I think that's what you call that
scale, maybe it's Gm penatonic) over the first section of
above.  Move to the last section the last time through.

back to Theme 1

Verse 3:
Because the tounge tastes so old,
Can't even load you coffee sweet
When she serves a bowl of lightning,
Makes sure you get all you need
   (move to Theme 2)
Sometimes come for a menu, some just come in to breathe
Hanging in the diner sitting in the light of Ms. Lee

She's beautiful - natural
Hanging in the diner, basking in the light,
Basking in the light…

another jam section (see above)

Verse 4:
She's beauty, yeah, the girl's cooking in the diner today
No, she won't show the bother,
Even time she gets covered in blues
I sing comical songs trying to blame myself
She's all-ready music in a booth, man, if she catch you

Then it progresses to the slower part as Houser gears up:

Theme 3:
  /  /  /  /   /  /  /  /

This goes on for a few bars as Schools works around.
Then back to Theme 2 for the remainder, this time with
a sweeping pick motion:

   /   /    /   /       /   /    /   /

Mikey also adds the following fill on occasion.

melody riff near end of song:

Hanging in the diner
Sitting in the light of Ms. Lee
Opening up early
Help a poor boy up
Open on Sunday, all day
Little sunshine rising from the park
Cross the street to the path
Keeping my teeth long and longer
And a smile...

Hanging in the light
Hanging in the light

End with a pause on the Bb, then a G
