Life by the Drop

Stevie Ray Vaughan

 AE7
 Hello there, my old friend, 
 F#minD7
 Not so long ago it was 'till the end
 AE7
 We played out in th' pouring rain 
 F#minD7
 On our way up the road we started over again

 F#minD7E7
 You're living a dream, wo you on top
 F#minD7
 My mind is achin' Lord it won't stop
 F#minD7E7AA
 That's how it happens livin' life by th'  drop        
^---- only 2/4 here

Up and down that road in our worn out shoes
Talkin' 'bout good thangs, singin' th' blues
You went your way, I stayed behind
We both knew it was justa matter of time

You're livin' our dream, wo you on top
My mind is achin', Lord it won't stop
That's how it happens livin' life by th' drop

No wasted time we're alive today
Churning up th' past, there's no easier way
Time's been between us, a means to an end
God it's good to be here walkin' together my friend

We're livin' our dreams
my mind stopped achin'
That's how it happens livin' life by th' drop
That's how it happens livin' life by th' drop

On 'The Sky Is Crying', SRV plays this song with a 12-string.
Note SRV used both xx0212 and xx7575 for D7.

That's it. There are a couple of licks missing but with a little messing
around with the chords you'll be able to get them.
