F                   Bb
  goofy thing but i just gotta say
C     Bb        F

  F                       Bb          F
I think i'll make me some homemade soup
    C
I'm feeling pretty good
                 Bb
A n d that's the truth
F                        Bb

No i'm just doing all right

[chorus]

           C            F     Dm
And it's a great day to be alive
           Gm
I know the sun's still shining
       F         C
When i close my eyes
                       F       Dm
It's hard times in the neighborhood
    Gm             Am
But why can't everyday
   Bb        C    F  Bb F C  Bb
Be just this good

[verse (2)]

          F                   Bb     F
It's been fifteen years since i left home
C                       Bb
Said good luck to every seed i'd sown
F          C            Dm       Bb
Gave it my best, then i left it alone
C                Bb        F
  i hope they're doing all right

   F       Bb                F
Redbird, redbird what do you see?
        C
He says i
                   Dm      Bb
See a lone wolf looking at me
   F               C
Head in the clouds
       Dm         Bb
But harmless as a tree
  C                Gm  F
I guess he's doing all right"

[chorus]

           C            F     Dm
And it's a great day to be alive
           Gm
I know the sun's still shining
       F         C
When i close my eyes
                       F       Dm
It's hard times in the neighborhood
    Gm             Am
But why can't everyday
   Bb        C
Be just this good

[bridge]

               C
Sometimes it's lonely
    Am         Bb
Sometimes it's only me
        Gm      F    Bb        Dm
And the shadows that fill this room
              C
Sometimes i'm falling
   Am       Bb
Desperately calling
               Gm
Howling at the moon
   F  Am Bb F C Gm
Awooo
   F  Am Bb F C Gm
Awooo

[verse (3)]

       F                  Bb         F
It's a colorful life that we go through
             C
It's neither black or white
         Bb
Nor just shades of blue
F          C         Dm        Bb
Maybe i'll grow me a fu man chu

[chorus]

           C            F     Dm
And it's a great day to be alive
           Gm
I know the sun's still shining
       F         C
When i close my eyes
                       F       Dm
It's hard times in the neighborhood
    Gm             Am
But why can't everyday
   Bb        C
Be just this good

           C            F     Dm
And it's a great day to be alive
           Gm
I know the sun's still shining
       F         C
When i close my eyes
                       F       Dm
It's hard times in the neighborhood
    Gm             Am
But why can't everyday

And it's a goofy thing but I just gotta say, I'm doing all right

I'm feeling pretty good and that's the truth
It's neither drink nor drug induced, no I'm just doing all right

[Verse 2]
It's been fifteen years since I left home
Said good luck to every seed I'd sown
Gave it my best, then I left it alone
I hope they're doing all right
Redbird, redbird what do you see?
He says, "I see a lone wolf looking at me
Head in the clouds but harmless as a tree

[Chorus]
And it's a great day to be alive
I know the sun's still shining when I close my eyes

But why can't everyday be just this good

[Bridge]
Sometimes it's lonely
Sometimes it's only me and the shadows that fill this room
Sometimes I'm falling, desperately calling, howling at the moon
Awooo
Awooo

It's a colorful life that we go through
It's neither black or white, nor just shades of blue
Maybe I'll grow me a fu man chu

I know the sun's still shining when I close my eyes
It's hard times in the neighborhood
