           D                             G                     D      G
I've got a smile on my face and I've got four walls around me
             D                      G                   D       G
I've got the sun in the sky and the water surrounds me
       D                       G
Yeah I win now and sometimes I lose
          A                    G                Esus4   A
I've been battered but I never bruise, it's not bad

          D                        G
And I say hey hey hey it's just an ordinary day
         D                 G
And it's all your state of mind
       D
At the end of the day
    G                    D         G     D     G
You just got to say it's alright

Janie sings on the corner, what keeps her from dying
Let them say what they want, she won't stop trying, oh you know
She might stumble if they push her around
She might fall but she'll never lie down, it's not so bad

Chorus

D     G         D                     G
           It's alright, it's alright,   it's alright

D     G     D     G

In this beautiful life there's always some sorrow
And it's a double edged knife but there's always tomorrow, oh you know
It's up to you now if you'll sink or swim
Just keep the faith that your ship will come in, it's not so bad

And I say hey hey hey it's just an ordinary day
And it's all your state of mind
At the end of the day
You just got to say, I say
Hey hey hey it's just an ordinary day
And it's all your state of mind
At the end of the day
You just got to say it's alright

     D                       G
It's alright, it's alright
           D                             G
I've got a smile on my face and I've got four walls around me
