Better Get To Livin Dolly Parton
[E]People always comin' up to me and askin'
"Dolly, what's your s[A]ecret?
With [E]all you do, your attitude
Just seems to be so good
How do you k[A]eep it?"
Well, I'm n[B]ot the Dalai Lama, but I'll t[A/D]ry
To of[B]fer up a few words of adv[A/D]ice.
You better get to li[E]vin', g[A]ivin'
[B]Don't forget to throw in a little for[E]givin'
And lo[A]vin' on the w[B]ay
You better get to kn[E]owin', sh[A]owin'
[B]A little bit more concern about where you're g[A/D]oin'
Just a word unt[B]o the wise
You better get to li[E]vin'.
E, A, B
A [E]girlfriend came to my house
Started cryin' on my shoulder Sunday e[A]vening
She was sp[E]innin' such a sad tale
I could not believe the yarn that she was w[A]eavin'
[B]So negative the words she had to [A/D]say
I said i[B]f I had a violin I'd p[A/D]lay.
I said you'd better get to li[E]vin', gi[A]vin'
Be wil[B]ling and forgivin'
Cause all he[E]aling h[A]as to start with y[B]ou
You better stop wh[E]ining, pi[A]ning
[B]Get your dreams in line
And then just s[E]hine, design, re[A]fine
Until they[B] come true
And you better get to li[E]vin'.
Bridge: (Not sure about this part)
[Gm]Your life's a wreck, your h[Csus2]ouse is mess
And your war[D5]drobe way o[Eb]utdated
[Gm]All your plans just ke[Csus2]ep on falling th[D5]rough
[Gm]Overweight and un[Csus2]der paid, un[D5]der apprec[Eb]iated
[D5]I'm no guru, but I'll tell you
[B]This I know is true.
You better get to l[E]ivin', g[A]ivin'
A little m[B]ore thought about bein'
A little more will[E]in' to [A]make a better [B]way
Don't sweat the s[E]mall stuff
Keep your c[A]hin up
Just ha[B]ng tough
And if it gets too rough
Fall o[A/D]n your knees and pr[B]ay
And d[A/D]o that ever[B]yday
Then you'll get to li[E]vin'.
The da[E]y we're born we st[A]art to die
Don't wa[B]ste one minute o[A/D]f this life
G[E]et to li[A]vi[B]n'
[E]Share your dreams and sh[A]are your laughter
[B]Make some points for the g[A/D]reat he[E]re[A]aft[B]er.
Better start ca[E]rin'
Better start sh[A]arin'
Better start tr[B]yin'
Better start sm[E]iling
And you [A]better [B]get to li[E]vin'...
