Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I felt this song deserved a better tab, and though I'm not sure if this is the way 
Elliott played it, it sounds pretty close to my ears.


Standard tuning.

C/G: 332010
D7/F#: 200212 (Reach your thumb to fret the F# on the low E if you're comfortable 
with it, if not, D7 sounds fine.
G: 320033
E7: 020100
F: 133211
Am: 002210

Riff thing based around a G shape:
 e|--------------------3---
 B|--------------------3---
 G|----------------0---0---
 D|----------0-2-0-----0---
 A|----0-2-0-----------2---
 E|--3---------------0-3---




Verse 1:

  C/G   D7/F#                        G
Sunshine     been keeping me up for days
            C/G       D7/F#                       G
There is no nighttime,      it's only a passing phase
            C/G   D7/F#                   G       E7
And I feel pretty,      pretty enough for yo-------u
          C/G         D7/F#
I felt so ugly before
                      F  (There is a piano part here) Am
I didn't know what to do

Verse 2: (Exactly the same as verse 1, just keep repeating the C/G, D7/F#, F, Am part)

Sometimes is all I feel up to now
But it's not worth it to you, 'cos you gotta get high somehow
Is it destruction that you're required to feel?
Like somebody wants you, someone that's more for real?
Sunshine been keeping me up for days
There is no nighttime, only a passing phase
And I'll feel pretty another hour or two
I felt so ugly before
I didn't know what to do
I felt so ugly before
I didn't know what to do
I felt so ugly before
I didn't know what to do
Ugly before
