 E       A
        Drag myself from my bed
 Gbm       B

Gbm          B
1 egg 2 toast 3 weetabix
E           A
and as i sit down i look up
Gbm                        B
and your standing in the doorway sun at your back
       A
in my old brown dressing gown
                 Gbm        B
Well no one can love you more than i love you now, but i


E     A
Gotta go running for the bus
Gbm                                    B
Coat flying and i try not to miss it this time
E                A
but the drivers waiting and thats strange
Gbm                  B
kids on the top deck quiet for a change
E                  A
and theres no rain and no roadworks in the
Gbm           B            A
bus lane and all my hurts run away
         B
and im smiling as im punching in

Chorus:
E        B                    A         B

E         B                    A         B
the day i died was the best day of my life
E                     B
tell my friends and my kids and my wife
A              B

E           B                    A         B
the day i died was the best day of my life


-next Verses have the same chord pattern as the first one-

Verse:
now the secretaries they got a smile for me
and the intray on my desks almost empty
I get a memo from executive joe
saying Rob the gob is getting kicked out
for embezzling funds from the company account
and id be lying if i said i wasnt chuffed
cos i always hated rob
and now they'll probbaly offer me robs old job

Verse:
and in the park at lunch
theres no whinos on my favourite bench
none of that drunk chatter none of that pissy stench
and the 20 little piegeons with the gammy leg
decide to dine from someone elses sandwich instead
and theres something about the city today
like all the colours conspire to overwhelm the grey
and this close to the fire i can feel no cold
but a rainbow halo around my soul

Chorus:
E        B                    A         B
the day i died was the best day of my life
E         B                    A         B
the day i died was the best day of my life
E                     B
tell my friends and my kids and my wife
A              B
everything will be alright
E           B                    A         B
the day i died was the best day of my life

Bridge:
      Dm                     F
so i leave work get to the high street and i miss my bus
          C                    G
should i wait for another no i cant be arsed
         Dm
i begin to walk
                F                           C
and rush hour crowd seem to part like the red sea
                        G
and im stopping at the offy
 Dm                                  F
20 cigerettes and a 6 pack to relax me
C
and as i cross back over the street
G
i guess i never saw that taxi
