This is 'Beautiful Day' by the Levellers and it is on the 'Mouth to Mouth'
album. It is pretty easy and I think it is right. However, if yo uhave any
questions then mail me.


N.C.                     A                                 F#m

What a beautiful day I'm the king of all time

D                                    E                             F#m

Nothing is impossible in my own powerful mind.

1st verse


Was on the fifth of November


When time, it went back,


Well some would say that that's impossible

E                                                     F#m

But you and I have never looked back.

And wasn't it incredible


Oh so beautiful and above all


Oh just to see the fuse get lit this time

E                                               F#m

And light a real bonfire for all time.


[ Tab from: https://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/l/levellers/beautiful_day_crd_ver_2.html ]
Chords at this point are F#m, C#m, D, E, and F#m.

On the CD, Jon plays the melody on his fiddle over the top of these chords.

2nd verse

(Same chords as first verse)

I was drinking in a night club

It felt good to be back

When Hepburn said "I love you"

And Flynn said "Make mine a double Jack"

Was then we planned a revolution

To make things better for all time

When Guevara said "That's crazy"

And ordered up a bottle of wine.




In there on the big screen


Evr'y night I've seen

        D             E                F#          C#m             D
E          F#m         D

The way all things could be, oh for me, oh for me, for me, for me.


3rd verse

The news broke after midnight

And we pulled the temples down without a sound

But the generals they were hiding out

The ministers well........

They'd all gone to ground

Wealth redistribution

Became the new solution

So I got the paperbag

And ypu got the one with all the holes.


At end of chorus comes this:

                        D                                 E

Oh yeah and nothing is impossible in my own powerful mind

                            D                                  E

That's because nothing is impossible in my own powerful mind.
