Ordinary Day - By Great Big Sea
>From the album Play, track 1
GBS play this song without the capo, using lots of power chords. I
simplified the song a little by using a capo. If you want to play it with
power chords, transpose the chords up one step (E = F, A = B, B = C, F#m =
Gm). The strumming patterns are easy enough to pick up after hearing the
song a couple of times off the CD. Please send corrections to

ORDINARY DAY - By Great Big Sea
Capo 1
[E] [A] [E] [A]  
I've got a [E]smile on my face, and I've got [A]four walls around me[E].[A]
I've got the [E]sun in the sky, all the [A]water surrounds me, [E]oh-ee-[B]oh.
Yeah, I'll [E]win now, but sometimes I'll [A]lose.
I've been [E]battered, but I never [A]bruise, it's not so [F#m]bad,[B]
And I say [E]way-hey-hey, it's just an [A]ordinary [B]day,
And it's [E]all your [A]state of [B]mind.
At the [E]end of the day,
You've [A]just got to [B]say it's all [E]right[A].[E] [A]
Janie [E]sings on the corner, what [A]keeps her from dying[E]?[A]
Let them [E]say what they want, [A]she won't stop trying, [E]oh-ee-[B]oh.
She might [E]stumble, if they push her `[A]round.
She might [E]fall, but she'll never lie [A]down, it's not so [F#m]bad,[B]
It's all [E]right, it's all right[A], it's all right[E].[A] [E] [A]
In this [E]beautiful life, there's [A]always some sorrow[E].[A]
And it's a [E]double edged knife, but there's [A]always tomorrow, [E]oh-ee-[B]oh.
It's up to [E]you now if you sink or [A]swim,
Just keep the [E]faith and your ship will come [A]in, it's not so [F#m]bad,[B]
And I say [E]way-hey-hey, it's just an [A]ordinary [B]day,
And it's [E]all your [A]state of [B]mind.
At the [E]end of the day, you've [A]just got to [B]say...
It's all [E]right, it's all right[A].
`Cause I've got a [E]smile on my face and I've got [A]four walls around me[E].
