Intro: Db

Verse:
 Db
Sun is shinin' in the sky,
               Cm7  F   Bbm
There ain't a cloud in sight
               Eb
It's stopped rainin'
      Cm          F
Everybody's in a play
               Gb
And don't you know
                      Db        Gb
It's a beautiful new day, hey hey

Verse - same as first -:
Runnin' down the avenue,
See how the sun shines brightly
In the city on the streets
Where once was pity,
Mr. Blue Sky is living here today.

Chorus:
Bbm        Db                  Gb
Mr. Blue Sky, please tell us why,
            Db
You had to hide away
    Ebm      Db               B          Gb
For so long       where did we go wrong.

-same chord pattern-
Hey there Mr. Blue
We're so pleased to be with you
Look around see what you do,
Everybody smiles at you.

Verse - same as first -:
Hey you with the pretty face,
Welcome to the human race
A celebration Mr. Blue Sky's
Up there waitin' and today
Is the day we've waited for

Chorus:
Bbm        Db                  Gb
Mr. Blue Sky, please tell us why,
            Db
You had to hide away
    Ebm      Db               B          Gb
For so long       where did we go wrong.

Bridge:
 Db          
Mr. Blue you did it right,
               Cm7   F    Bbm
But soon comes Mis - ter Night,
          Eb
Creepin' over, now his
 Cm                F
Hand is on your shoulder,
       Gb                     A
Never mind I'll remember you this 
        B              Bbm
I'll remember you this way.
 
Outro:

  1. Bro… it’s not hard to put the chords in the next verse. It doesn’t matter if it’s the same pattern. I got really confused at the second part of the chorus ‘cos I had no idea where the chords went. I appreciate your work, though! :)

  2. This is so difficult because I need to go back to the other verse and figure out on what words to play the chords. They should just put them on top of the lyrics like all the other songs

  3. This is one of my favorite songs!! :) i’m glad i found this!!

  4. screw this they didnt even write all the chords go to ultimate guitar!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Yo wus poppin?️

    +2? Try it, seems easier

  6. I adore this song with all my heart <3

  7. I’m pretty sure the A’s in the verses should be A7’s, other than that sounds great to me.

  8. Actually the line ate the end of eache verse should be F>C>F

  9. Correctomundo Bliss! Good catch!

  10. Shouldn’t the section:

    F Bb
    It’s a beautiful new day, hey hey

    Actually be:

    F C <—–
    It's a beautiful new day, hey hey

  11. brill
