Chris de Burgh - Perfect Day From the album: At the End of a Perfect Day (1977) Comment for any corrections and please rate 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. A I brought along my old guitar, A And lying there beneath the stars, Dm C Bb We sang all the Beatles songs we knew, Gm 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. A Then people start coming around the fire, A And I was strumming at my old guitar, Dm C Bb Trying to think of something everybody knew, Gm 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.
