We'll put on the day Dsus4/F Dsus4/E D And we'll wear it till the night comes D Dsus4addB D Woke up it was a Chelsea morning and the first thing that I saw Was the sun through yellow curtains and a rainbow on my wall Red, green and gold to welcome you, crimson crystal bells to beckon Oh, won't you stay? We'll put on the day There's a sun show every second D Dsus4addB D D Bm7(addAb)/D D G Dmaj7 G6+9/D D Now the curtain opens on a portrait of today G Dmaj7 And the streets are paved with passers by G6+9/D Dmaj7 And pigeons fly and papers lie G G6+9/D Waiting to blow away D7sus2 B7+9 D7sus2 B7+9 D7sus2 D(2) Woke up it was a Chelsea morning and the first thing that I knew There was milk and toast and honey and a bowl of oranges too And the light pured in like butterscotch and stuck to all my senses Oh, won't you stay? we'll put on the day And we'll talk in present tenses D Dsus4/BD D Bm7(addAb)/D D G Dmaj7 G6+9/D D When the curtain closes and the rainbow runs away G Dmaj7 I will bring you incense owls at night G6+9/D Dmaj7 G A By candle light, by jewel light if only you will stay Dmaj7 G6+9/D Pretty baby won't you D7sus2 D(2) Wake up, it's a Chelsea morning CHORDS: B7sus2: 0 0 0 10 0 10 B7+9: 0 0 0 9 0 9 D(2): 0 0 0 12 0 12 G: 5 5 5 5 5 5 Dmaj7: 0 4 4 3 0 0 G6+9/D: 0 2 2 1 0 0 D: 0 0 0 0 0 0 Dsus4addE: 0 0 2 1 0 0 D7sus4: 0 3 0 1 0 0 Dsus4addB: 0 2 0 1 0 0 Dsus4/F: 3 0 0 1 0 0 Dsus4/E: 2 0 0 1 0 0 Bm7(addAb)/D: 2 0 2 0 0 0 A: 7 7 7 7 7 7
