Perfect Day

Year: 1977 - Album: At the End of a Perfect Day


Intro: F 

F                                        C 
 Oh Lord, I'm tired, it's time to go to bed, 
F           C                Gm                C 
 Way after midnight and the wine's gone to my head, 
Bb            G                  C                Bb 
 Lying here upon the shore just listening to the waves, 
           F      Bb      C 
 And it's been a perfect day. 

F                                        C 
 Packed up a picnic and set off for the sea, 
F                C                Gm                C 
 Taking all the back roads where no-one else would be, 
Bb               G                    C                 Bb 
 Me and you and Paul and Sue, how we laughed the time away, 
         F     Bb      C 
 And we had a perfect day.  

 I brought along my old guitar, 
 And lying there beneath the stars, 
     Dm           C                 Bb 
 We sang all the Beatles songs we knew, 
 Lord you should have heard those harmonies, 
       C                             F C Bb F  F C Bb F  F C Bb F  F C Bb F 
 When we did Nowhere Man and Let It Be...  

     F                                           C              
 My love, if we should break up, should we ever part, 
             F                  C         Gm               C 
 And you're searching for some memory to help your aching heart, 
Bb                 G                   C            Bb 
 Forget about the hurtful things that lovers often say, 
        F           Bb      C 
 And remember this perfect day.  

 Then people start coming around the fire, 
 And I was strumming at my old guitar, 
             Dm               C           Bb 
 Trying to think of something everybody knew, 
 And then you said "though it's far away, 
      C                                 F  C Bb 
 A Christmas song would really make my day." 
               F   C  G C  F C  F C  G C  C G C 
 And everbody sang...  

     Bb            G 
 And all I really want to do, 
     C              Bb 
 Is sing songs for you, 
            F      Bb      C 
 Then it's been a perfect day, 
           F      Bb      F 
 Yes it's been a perfect day.
