To the best of my knowledge this is the way to play "Ugly Day." But as
anybody who tries to tab this out will find, there are a LOT of changes
and stuff, so I'm probably wrong on a lot of things. It sounds good
though played alone, or with the CD though.

See notes at the bottom for any asterisks (*)

Intro:
The song starts with the rhythm guitar playing a D while the lead plays
this:

e-----------------------------
B-----------------------------
G-----------------------------
D-0-4-0------0-2-0----------
A-------2----------4-2-0-----
E---------3-------------------
   
Verse 1:
D                  G      
I don't know just how this happened 
D                    A
Didn't think it ever could
D                  G 
I'm the author of sappy love songs 
Bm            A* 
Trading in my batchelorhood 
Em                A
Something snapped deep inside me       
D                  G
Something that somebody said 
B                    A                   G
I felt the brush of angels wings and your voice echoed in my head 

Chorus:
D    A   G      A
Ugly Day, sun is shining 
D      A            Bm     G
Every cloud's got a silver lining 
D    A    G         A
Ugly Day, skies are blue
G         Bm     A 
Now every day is ugly without you 

Verse 2:
You are the one pure thing 
That I've always prayed for 
Scales are falling from my eyes 
Must have been so blind before 
I would lie down on the street 
Keep the dust off of your feet
I would kneel each time I kiss you 
Anything; Christie I miss

-Chorus-

Bridge:("Whoa-oh" part)
G-D

Now it gets tricky. After bridge the key gets moved up 1 step from D to
E.
So.....

Verse 3:
E            A 
Today was an ugly one
E                 B 
Just like all the others
E               A
All the flowers and the birds
C#           B** 
Make me feel smothered
F#               B 
I would lie down on the street
E                 A 
Keep the dust off of your feet
C#                  B
I would kneel each time I kiss you 
A
Anything; Christie I miss you
                                                                         
                                                
2nd Chorus:
E    B   A      B
Ugly Day, sun is shining 
E      B            C#m     A
Every cloud's got a silver lining 
E    B    A         B
Ugly Day, skies are blue
A         C#m     B 
Now every day is ugly without you

-2nd Chorus- 

2nd Bridge:
A-E

Outro:
Rhythm guitar plays an E while lead plays this:

e-----------------------------
B-----------------------------
G-----------------------------
D---6--------4----------------
A-7---4----7---7-6-4----------
E-------5------------7--------
 
That's it, any comments, questions, or whatever email me at

* This may sound funny sometimes when compared to the CD, so if you want
you can throw in a quick F#-F-E fill to kinda make it sound "better",
cause that is what the horns are playing over the A chord that the guitar
is playing

** Basically the same thing as the first *, but because of the key change
the fill would be: G#-G-F#
