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)
