Intro Riff x1

G
I close my eyes when I get too sad. 
D5
I think thoughts that I know are bad. 
C5
Close my eyes and I count to ten. 
D5
Hope itís over when I open them. 
G
I want the things that I had before,
D5
Like a Star Wars poster on my bedroom door. 
C5
I wish I could count to ten,
D5
make everything be wonderful again. 
G
Hope my Mom and I hope my Dad 
D5
figure out why they get so mad. 
C5
Hear them scream, hear them fight. 
D5
They say bad words that make me want to cry. 
G
I close my eyes when I go to bed 
D5
and I dream of angels that make me smile. 
C5
I feel better when I hear them say, 
D5
"Everything will be wonderful some day."

Here's The Lead Riff In The Chorus Of Wonderful
1|-10----10----10-12p10----10------|
2|----12----12-----------12----12--|

Suggestion from Mike (LeadGtr4FB@aol.com)

For the chords during the verses use just an open G, D, C, D instead of the
c5's or whatever they were. Just a suggestion. They both sound good but
Wonderful sounds better with open chords.

Version 2: Tabbed by Paul Ross (celibate1@home.com)

(Intro and first verse: Piano and Guitar)

G    D    C    D

G                                       D
I close my eyes when I get too sad      I think thoughts that I know are bad
C                                       D
Close my eyes and I count to ten        Hope it's over when I open them

G                                              D
I want the things that I had before     Like a Star Wars poster on my bedroom door
C                                       D
I wish I could count to ten             Make everything be wonderful again

G                                       D
Hope my mom and I hope my dad           Will figure out why they get so mad
C                                       D
Hear them scream, I hear them fight     They say bad words that make me wanna cry

G                                       D
Close my eyes when I go to bed and I    Dream of angel who make me smile
C                                       C
I feel better when I hear them say      Everything will be wonderful someday

(Pick out chords)
C                  D
Promises mean everything when you're little
        G               
And the world's so big
G                       C

        D
Tell me everything is wonderful now

C                                        D
I like to laugh so my friends won't know When the bell rings I just don't wanna go (home)

G                                       D
