                KATY SAYS TODAY IS THE BEST DAY OF MY WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE (Christine Lavin)
[Actually in A; capo 2.]
[You can see from the tablature that her picking pattern can be fairly
 random in this song; just ad lib it if you get frustrated.  You're on
 your own after the first verse.]
[By the way, the words aren't exactly lined up with the tab; they're
 just there for guides.]

 I figure they'll think I'm some kid of babysitting genius
                                    to make this little girl so darned happy

C         G/B     Am7      C/G        C        G/B    Am7   C/G
  I think back to what I know was the best day of my life
       Fsus9    Fsus9  Fsus9  Fsus9   G6   G6   G   G
It was wintertime,        ten years ago
Am        Am            Em7     Em7    Fsus9   Fsus9   C   C
  We were staying in a farmhouse in the middle of Vermont
C                G/B          Am7         C/G    Fsus9    Fsus9    G   G
  The hills were covered with christmas trees and freshly fallen snow
Am            Am                Em7      Em7     Fsus9   Fsus9   C   C
  Instantly I picture the vivid details of that day
C         G/B             Am7       C/G   D7/F#            D7/F#   G   G
When you told me that you loved me more     than you could ever say
Am    Am          Em7     Em7     Fsus9    Fsus9   C   C
  The air was a bracing cold, the sky a startled blue
C       G/B     Am7  C/G     Fsus9     G        C   C   C   C
Never before or since have I felt that close to you

Fsus9           Fsus9   Fsus9    Fsus9  C        G/B      Am7   C/G
What does that say about you and me      and the past ten years
Fsus9           Fsus9          Fsus9   Fsus9              Gsus4  Gsus4  G  G
I've learned to live with your silence, you've learned to overlook my tears
Fsus9     Fsus9    Fsus9     Fsus9     C       G/B      Am7   C/G
Now this dancing three-year-old in her simple, perfect way
D7/F#    D7/F#           D7/F#    D7/F#   Gsus4        Gsus4   G   G
  Has me questioning the basis for         the life we live today
C  G/B  Am7  C/G    C  G/B  Am7  C/G
[instrumental]

C   G/B     Am7      C/G       C         G/B    Am7   C/G
    Katy's prob'ly sleeping now, I wonder if she dreams
     C  G/B             Am7   C/G  Fsus9    Fsus9    G   G
About   flying with the angels and dancing with moonbeams
Am         Am     Em7    Em7      Fsus9   Fsus9      C   C
  You are here beside me; you are snoring right out loud
C           G/B             Am7     C/G  D7/F#       D7/F#     G   G
  I long to kiss you on the forehead and smooth your worried brow
Am   Am                 Em7    Em7          Fsus9  Fsus9    C   C
     Though we have not given up, it's been ages since we tried
   C          G/B      Am7  C/G       D7/F#       D7/F#    G   G
To reveal the aching passion that for years we've pushed aside
Am  Am             Em7     Em7       Fsus9     Fsus9    C   C
  I whisper that I love you because I know you can not hear
       C        G/B  Am7         C/G       Fsus9  G       C  G/B  Am7  C/G
I turn off the light, and in the dark, you gently pull me near
C  G/B  Am7  C/G
[instrumental]
C  G/B            Am7            C/G      C        G/B    Am7  C/G.
   Katy says, "today is the best day of my whole entire life"
