About the song: Beautiful
"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
