...GOLDEN AUTUMN DAY... by Van Morrison
-----------------------................

*from 'Back On Top' (1999)*


Intro:

F  Am, Bbmaj7 (x2)

Verse 1:

       F
Well I heard the bells ringing,
      Am
I was thinking about winning,
        Bbmaj7
In this God forsaken place.

        F
When my confidence was well,
       Am
Then I tripped and I fell,
      Bbmaj7
Right flat on my face.

        F
Now I'm standing erect,
      Am
And I feel like coming back,
        Bbmaj7
And the sun is shining gold.

      F
Put a smile on my face,
         Am
Get back in the human race,
        Bbmaj7
And get on with the show.

Bridge 1:

        C
And I'm taking in,
           Bbmaj7
The Indian Summer,
        C
And I'm soaking it,
         Bbmaj7
Up in my mind.
            C
And I'm pre-tending,
               Bbmaj7
That it's para-dise,

Chorus 1:

(Bbmaj7)            F    Bbmaj7
 On a golden Autumn day,
                   F    Bbmaj7
On a golden Autumn day.

(Bbmaj7)            F    Bbmaj7
 On a golden Autumn day,
                   F    C
On a golden Autumn day.

Verse 2:

       F
In the wee midnight hour,
      Am
I was parking my car,
        Bbmaj7
In this dimly lit town.

         F
I was at-tacked by two thugs,
    Am
Who took me for a mug,
              Bbmaj7
And shoved me down on the ground.

         F
And they pulled out a knife,
      Am
And I fought my way up,
        Bbmaj7
As they scarpered from the scene.

             F
Well this is no New York street,
               Am
And there's no Bobby on the beat,
                 Bbmaj7
And things ain't just what they seem.

Bridge 2:

        C
And I'm taking in,
           Bbmaj7
The Indian Summer,
        C
And I'm soaking it,
         Bbmaj7
Up in my mind.
            C
And I'm pre-tending,
               Bbmaj7
That it's para-dise,

Chorus 2:

(Bbmaj7)            F    Bbmaj7
 On a golden Autumn day,
                   F    Bbmaj7
On a golden Autumn day.

(Bbmaj7)            F    Bbmaj7
 On a golden Autumn day,
                   F    C
On a golden Autumn day.

Verse 3:

          F
Who would think this could happen,
     Am
In a city like this?
              Bbmaj7
Among Blake's green and pleasant hills.

       F
And we must remember,
      Am
As we go through September,
            Bbmaj7
Among these dark satanic mills.

           F
If there's such a thing as justice,
        Am
I could take them out and flog them,
       Bbmaj7
In the nearest green field.

       F
And it might be a lesson,
       Am
To the bleeders of the system,
        Bbmaj7
In this whole society.

Bridge 3:

        C
And I'm taking in,
           Bbmaj7
The Indian Summer,
        C
And I'm soaking it,
         Bbmaj7
Up in my mind.
            C
And I'm pre-tending,
               Bbmaj7
That it's para-dise,

Chorus 3:

(Bbmaj7)            F    Bbmaj7
 On a golden Autumn day,
                   F    Bbmaj7
On a golden Autumn day.

(Bbmaj7)            F    Bbmaj7
 On a golden Autumn day,
                   F    Bbmaj7
On a golden Autumn day.
