                      "Wonderful" [SMILE version]
                    (Brian Wilson / Van Dyke Parks)

Verse 1:

	C# [L.H: B   A#   G#]  B/F#          G#m7
	She   be---longs there left with her liberty
	Fm7-5 C#m6      F#m7  B7sus4 B7
	Never known as a non-believer
	    G#m7        C#m7        G#/D# C#/F    G#/D#    C#/F G#/D#
	She laughs and stays in the Won-  won-won-wonderful

	[L.H: E F# G# A# B]

Verse 2:

	C# [L.H: B   A#   G#]  B/F#      G#m7
	She knew     how  to gather the forest when
	Fm7-5       C#m6       F#m7    B7sus4 B7
	God reached softly and moved her body
	   E/G#    Fm7-5         B/F#      F#/A#
	One golden locket, quite young and loving
	   E/B C#m    E/B C#m
	Her mother and father

Verse 3:

	Farther down the path was a mystery
	Through the recess, the chalk and numbers
	A boy bumped into her wonderful

Verse 4:

	All fall down and lost in her mystery
	Lost it all to a non-believer
	And all that's left is a girl who's loved by
	Her mother and father

Verse 5:

	She'll return in love with her liberty
	Just away from the non-believer
	She'll sigh and thank God for wonderful

N.B.: I suspect that this is actually played in D on a harpsichord tuned
      down a semi-tone (i.e., A=415):


	D  [D C B   A]  C/G   Am7
	/   /   /   /    /  /  /  /
	F#m7-5 Dm6   Gm7  C7sus4 C7
	 /  /  /  /   /  /  /    / 
	Am7   Dm7    A/E   D/F#   A/E   D/F#   A/E
	 /  /  /  /   /  /  /  /   /  /  /  /   /  /

	[L.H: F G A B C]

	D  [D C B   A]  C/G   Am7
	/   /   /   /    /  /  /  /
	F#m7-5 Dm6   Gm7  C7sus4 C7
	 /  /  /  /   /  /  /    / 
	F/A  F#m7-5  C/G   G/B
	 /  /  /  /   /  /  /  / 
	F/C    Dm    F/C    Dm
	 /  /  /  /   /  /  /  /

...but to further confound the issue, it's in C on the "I Just Wasn't
Made For These Times" soundtrack:


	C  [C Bb A  G] Bb/F   Gm7
	/   /   /   /    /  /  /  /
	Em7-5 Cm6   Fm7  Bb7sus4 Bb7
	 /  /  /  /   /  /  /    / 
	Gm7   Cm7    G/D   C/E    G/D   C/E    G/D
	 /  /  /  /   /  /  /  /   /  /  /  /   /  /

	[L.H: Eb F G A Bb]

	C  [C Bb A  G] Bb/F   Gm7
	/   /   /   /    /  /  /  /
	Em7-5 Cm6   Fm7  Bb7sus4 Bb7
	/  /  /  /   /  /  /    / 
	Eb/G  Em7-5  Bb/F   F/A
	  /  /  /  /   /  /  /  / 
	Eb/Bb   Cm   Eb/Bb   Cm
	  /  /  /  /   /  /  /  /
