Beautiful  Belle and Sebastian



[A]   [C#m7]      [A]   [C#m7]      [A]   [G#m]     [F#m]     [E]      
[A]She lay in bed all night watching the[C#m7] colors change
[A]She lay in bed all night watching the[C#m7] morning change
[F#m]She lay in bed a[E]ll night watching the morning change into green and gold
[A]The doctor told her years ago that s[C#m7]he was ill
[A]The doctor told her years ago to tak[C#m7]e a pill
[A]The doctor told her years ago that s[G#m]he'd go blind if she[F#] wasn't careful
[C#m7]They let Lisa go b[B]lind
[A]The world was at her feet and she was [G#]looking down
[C#m7]They let Lisa go b[B]lind
[A]But everyone she knew thought she was[C#m7] beautiful
Only s[E]lightly mental
[C#m7]Beautiful
Only [E]tempermental
[Cm7]Beautiful
[A]She thought it would be fun to try[C#m7] photograghy
[A]She thought it would be fun to try[C#m7] pornography
[A]She thought it would be fun to try most[G#m] anything
She was [F#]tired of sleeping
[C#m7]They let Lisa go b[B]lind, let Lisa go [A]blind, let Lisa go [G#]blind
[C#m7]They let Lisa go b[B]lind
She's looking like a queen

But if you [C#m7]knew what's going on in her [A]life

There'd be a [F#m]thousand barren mothers there to [B]talk to her
If you knew[C#m7] what's going on in her [A]life
There'd be two[F#m] hundred troubled teenagers to [B]sit with her
And [B]talk to her
If you [E]knew what's going on in her[D] life
What's going on in her[A] life
There would be a[C#] documentary on Radio 4
(Trumpet solo spot...)

[G#]    [E]   [G#]    [E]   [G#]    [E]   [G#]    [B]   [E]   [B]   [C#m7]  [B] [C#m7] [B] [C#m7] [B] 
[E]   [B]   [C#m7]      [B]   [C#m7]      [B]   [C#m7]      [B]   [C#]    

She [A]made herself a pair of orth[C#m7]opaedic shoes
She [A]thought is was the answer t[C#m7]o the fashion blues
She [A]made herself a pair of orth[G#m]opaedic shoes
But she w[F#]alked with a limp
[C#m7]They let Lisa go [B]blind, let Lisa go [A]blind, let Lisa go[G#] blind...
C#m7 B A G# repeats to the end

(for the little tidbit at the very end, just repeat the 1st chorus)
