Verse 1
-------

 FCFC
 I get to the party, but I'm too late
 FCFC
 And I got stood up on my very first date
 FCFC
 I listen to country and everybody goes rock
 FCFC
 I get to the dance floor, that's when the music stops

Pre-Chorus
----------

 CF
 It doesn't matter what I do, I just can't seem to win
 CG
 But here I go again

And I say

Chorus
------

 CF
 Hey that's the story of my life
 GF
had a good plan but it didn't go right
 CF
 Oh no I'm overdrawn
 GF
check my account and the money's all gone
 CF
 Why me I don't know what to think
 GF
finally get aboard and the whole boat sinks
 CFGF
 Seems to be the story of my life

Intro

Verse 2
-------

 CFC
I pick a slot machine and lose it all again
 FCFC
 But when I walk away, someone else always wins
 FCFC
 When she finally calls me, I forget my phone
 FCFC
 And when I'm starving, you know the kitchen's closed

Pre-Chorus
----------

 CF
 It doesn't matter what I try, it all ends up the same
 CG
 And here I go again

Chorus
------

 CF
 Hey that's the story of my life
 GF
had a good plan but it didn't go right
 CF
 Oh no I'm overdrawn
 GF
check my account and the money's all gone
 CF
 Why me I don't know what to think
 GF
finally get aboard and the whole boat sinks
 CFGF
 Seems to be the story of my life

Bridge
------

 CFGFC
 Just when it seems like it's turnin' 'round for me
 CFGFC
 There's always something that ends up happening
 CFGFC
 found my car but I can't find my keys
