Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Good Life  Corey Smith

[G]Sittin al[D/F]one in my t[EM]hree bedroom h[D]ome,
a m[Cadd9]ile east of [D]where I was [G]raised.
[G]Stairin' out the [D/F]window at my [EM]dog in the [D]backyard,
in the [Cadd9]pinestraw [D]covered with [G]clay.
[G]Damn he's a [D/F]mess, but we [EM]love him to [D]death,
guess he [Cadd9]fits in this [D]family [G]well.
Yeah we're a [G]blood line of [D/F]sheperds used to [EM]roam in the [D]pastures,
tryin' to [Cadd9]cope with this [D]suburban [G]hell.

Chorus:
Aww, it [Cadd9]sure aint the [D]good life we're [G]livin',
Yeah I [Cadd9]reckon we're [D]happy [G]enough.
We've done [Cadd9]well with the [D]hands we were [G]givin',
with a little [Cadd9]hope and a [D]whole lotta' [G]love.

Verse 2:
Dad just finished buildin', it must've cost him a killin',
that house out on Rambeler's end,
He sent my brother off to college, walkin' through the arches,
Man we're all sure proud of him.
But he never tried to spoil us kept our hands in the sawdust,
yeah we chipped in whenever we could.
We shared in the sweat and the blood and the tears,
I guess he knew it would do us some good.

(Chorus)plus:
Lord we [Cadd9]don't have our [D]fist full of [G]dollars,
and we're [Cadd9]no southern [D]aristo[G]crats.
Naw, we [Cadd9]aint got a [D]lot but we've [EM]earned what we [D]got,
and we couldn't [Cadd9]do it much [D]better than [G]that.

(Solo)Play verse chords over lead.

Verse 3:
My wife quit her job now she's workin' full time,
takin' care of the baby and me.
And I'm playin' in the bars tryin' to pay off the debts,
Lord this half-acre didn't come cheap.
And I come draggin' in three and four in the mornin',

smellin' like tobacco and rum.
Still she wakes up to greet me cause she loves me completley,
Says she's proud of the star I've become.

(Chorus)plus:
Lord we [Cadd9]don't have our [D]fist full of [G]dollars,
and we're [Cadd9]no southern [D]aristo[G]crats.
Naw, we [Cadd9]aint got a [D]lot but we [EM]Love what we [D]got,
and we couldn't [Cadd9]do it much [D]better than [G]that.
And I [Cadd9]hope ole' [D]Saint Peter will [G]have me,
when they [Cadd9]throw my [D]cauffin in the [G]back.
When that [Cadd9]herse rolls [D]away I hope [EM]all ya'll will [D]say,
he couldn't [Cadd9]do it much [D]better than [G]that,
He couldn't [Cadd9]do it much [D]better than [G]that,
He couldn't [Cadd9]do it much [D]better than [G]that.
