Beautiful Day in August
Intro: GD GD GD AD
G D
It was a beautiful day in August
G D
The moon was out that night.
G D
Sittin’ around the kitchen table.
A D
Everything felt so right

G D
We were just starting dinner.
G D
Just the five of us that night.
G D
All three girls at home
A D
Oh my, it was quite a sight.

G D
Then Emily had an announcement.
G D
We listened to the news.
G D
She said Molly was having a baby.
A D
My oh my how crazy.

Chorus:
G D
Oh, there were tears in our eyes.
G D
Oh, we were so surprised.
G D
We weren’t sure what to do.
G A D
So we had a group hug or two.

G D
It was a beautiful day in August.
G D
All the girls were home that night.
G Df
Sittin’ ‘round the kitchen table.
A D
Everything felt so right.

G D
We started asking questions.
G D
Like when the baby was due.
G D
Molly started to answer.
A D
Then Casey said there’s something else, too.

G D
Molly said there’s more.
G D
We wondered what it could be.
G D
She said, “Yes, I’m having a baby,
A D
But so is my sister, Emily.”

Chorus:
G D
Oh, there were tears in our eyes.
G D
Oh, we were so surprised.
G D
We weren’t sure what to do.
G A D
So we had a group hug or two.
G A D
Yeah, we had a group hug or two.
