Intro: G   D   G

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

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

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

Chorus:
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                  D
And he could not shake his coooooooooooold

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

Verse:
G      D                   G   D
My my my its a beautiful world
Cadd9      D           G   D
I like sleeping with Marie


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

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

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
