INTRO: Am / Dm // Am / Dm 

Am                                              Dm
Well, I went out walking under cloudy skies,
          Am                                  Dm
I didn’t want to sit at home anymore.
             Am                                  Dm
I threw away my umbrella, and surprise, surprise,
                      Am                                      Dm
The heavens opened, and it started to pour.
     Am                             Em
But I don’t care about a little bit of rain,
               Am                                   Em
It’s only water – it won’t hurt anyway.
Am                                    Em
Wash away my troubles; wash away my pain,
       Am                               Em
And lead me to a brighter day (‘cos there are…)

CHORUS
Am     F                G7       Em
Good days, and better days…

       Am                                     Em
And nothing’s gonna bring me down, (no, no...)
Am     F                G7       Em
Good days, and better days…

   Am                                         Em
I barely keep my feet on the ground (I said…)
Am     F                G7       Em
Good days, and better days…

         Am                                        Em
They don’t get any better than this, (no, no…)
Am     F                G7        Em
Good days, and better days…

      Am                                  Em
I’m looking for a moment of bliss,
           Am                                  Em
I’m only looking for a moment of bliss.

Well, I met a man talkin’ to himself on the street, he said,
I’m gonna rip you limb from limb (Sonny Jim…)
I don’t know what I did to make him mad at me,
But as I ran away I said to him… (What did you say?)
Now, I don’t know a thing about the troubles you’ve seen,
Although you seem trying to be the worrying kind (Ah-ha…)
But if you really want to take a tip from me,
Why don’t you throw them out and leave them behind? (‘cos there are…)

CHORUS

BRIDGE
F                                       Em
Spread your wings and fly,
F                                        G7
Spread your wings and fly…

Come on...

REPEAT CHORUS and OUT with…

Good days, and better days…
My brother George said... my brother George said…
Good days, and better days…
There are only two kinds of days in this world…
Good days, and better days…
That’s what he said now... that’s what he said, now…
Good days, and better days…
Shine on my brother... shine on my brother…
Good days, and better days…
Open your heart, and shine on the other…
Good days, and better days…
Come on… Good days, and better days…
I said… Good days, and better days…
All right… Good days, and better days.
