      Bbm             Gm       Am        F       Bbm   C 
And I think to myself,  what a wonderful world

      F        Am/C Dm                Am/C    Bbm
I see skies of blue  /  and clouds of white

                   Am   Gm                  F
The bright blessed days  /  and dark sacred nights

      Bbm             Gm       Am        F (distortion on)
And I think to myself,  what a wonderful world

    Gm                            Am 
The colours of the rainbow are so pretty in the sky

     Gm                   Am
It's also on the faces of people goin' by

      Dm*             Am            Dm           Am
I see friends shakin' hands,  sayin', "How do ya do?"

Dm        Am      Bb      C
  Fairies sayin', "I love you."

       F      Am/C Dm                 Am/C  Bbm
I hear babies cry  /  and I watch 'em grow

                   Am   Gm                 F
They'll learn much more  /  than I'll ever know

      Bbm             Gm       Am        Bbm     Gm    Am
And I think to myself,  what a wonderful world

And I think to myself,  what a wonderful world
