About the song

"Beautiful," by Gordon Lightfoot, is one of his love songs, and a popular wedding (or anniversary) song at least among Lightfoot fans. It's a song that uses a somewhat unusual picking pattern; one he has said he learned from his dentist! Other songs using this picking pattern are Softly and If You Could Read My Mind.

The studio recording of "Beautiful" is available on Don Quixote, Gord's Gold, Complete Greatest Hits, and the Songbook boxed set.

"Beautiful," ©1972 by Gordon Lightfoot

                                      
At times I just don't know
How you could be anything but beautiful
I think that I was made for you and you were made for me
And I know that I will never change
'Cause we've been friends through rain or shine
For such a long, long time 
                                      
Laughing eyes and smiling face, it seems so lucky just to have the right
Of telling you with all my might, you're beautiful tonight
And I know that you will never stray
'Cause you been that way, from day to day
For such a long, long time
                                      
And when you hold me tight, how could life be anything but beautiful
I think that I was made for you and you were made for me
And I know that I will never change
'Cause we've been friends through rain or shine
For such a long, long time
                                      
Well I must say it means so much to me, to be the one
Who's telling you, I'm telling you, that you're beautiful

Beautiful Song Lyrics
