Dismal Day chords by Bread

From the 1969 album titled Bread, the song Dismal Day. This was Bread´s first single, although it didn´t chart. David Gates, who wrote the song, says, `We thought that song would be a smash hit, but it didn´t do that well as a single. It was a good outlet for us to sing all those high harmonies, though.`
