Beautiful Day - Corrections

I figured out the missing parts of the previous 
transcription (by Michael Albert) of this new classic song
Tune your guitar a half step down to play it.

Obs: The fill is pretty much right, though the notes are 
played a little bit apart from each other. Listen to the 
song carefully and you'll get it.


FILL 1

e ----9--9--9--7--9-10--7--7--7-10-10-10--9-10--9--7--9--9--7--9
B ---10-10-10-10-10-10--8--8--8-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10
G ----9--9--9--9--9--9--7--7--7--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9


INTRO

A Bm D G D A
A Bm D G D A

                   A   Bm D G
The heart is a bloom
       D                     A
Shoots up through the stony ground
              A  Bm D G
There's no room
     D                  A
No space to rent in this town

(Same chords repeat through the rest of the song...)

You're out of luck
And the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck
And you're not moving anywhere


You thought you'd found a friend
To take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand
In return for grace

(Same chords for this next part but you can play the fill 
also.)

                   Fill 1
It's a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
              Fill 1
A beautiful day
Don't let it get away


You're on the road
But you've got no destination
You're in the mud
In the maze of her imagination


The love is done
Even if that doesn't ring true
You've been all over
And it's been all over you

                   Fill 1 (very faintly)
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
                   Fill 1 (very faintly)
It's a beautiful day
Ooh Hoo Aah


Fill 1
Touch me
Take me to that other place
Fill 1
Teach me
I know I'm not a hopeless case

A Bm D G D A

Bridge  

Em
See the world in green and blue
D
See time move right in front of you
Em               G
See the canyons broken by cloud
D
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
Em               G
See the Bedouin fires at night
D
See the oil fields at first light
Em                 G
And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
D
After the flood all the colors came out
Yaaa

(End of Bridge.)

It was a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
Beautiful day
Yaa

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Reach me
I know I'm not a hopeless case


What you don't have you don't need it now
What you don't know you can feel it somehow
What you don't have you don't need it now
Don't need it now
It's a beautiful day

There are some piano notes that can be played in the 
guitar. I'll figure them out and updadte this 
transcription.

Thanx!!

Here is an update to the incomplete tab I made of this song a few days ago. 
I now have a complete
version of the song to base it on. The same chord progression is repeated 
throughout except for one
part. There is only one fill that really stands out is tabbed. The bridge 
still needs to be figured
out. Please feel free to email any updates, comments or corrections.

P.S} I found the lyrics posted at interference.com - I just cut and paste 
them - thanks to whoever
wrote them out!

(Bridge - Chords change here -- I haven't figured out this part yet - a 
little tricky.)

See the world in green and blue
See time move right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colors came out
Yaaa

(End of Bridge.)

It was a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
Beautiful day
Yaa

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Reach me
I know I'm not a hopeless case


What you don't have you don't need it now
What you don't know you can feel it somehow
What you don't have you don't need it now
Don't need it now
It's a beautiful day
