A Good Life  Jill Sobule

A Good Life- Jill Sobule

Tuning: Standard. Capo on 2nd fret.
Sounds good with arpeggios or strumming. This is based on Jill's own great
(Two quick strums, or one fast downwards arpeggio - plucking base note then three
strings - per chord for verse and the chorus; like 2/2 timing. Bridge section is
slower, more like 4/4 timing.)
Tomorr[G]ow the [D]ground ma[G]y sha[D]ke
Like th[G]ey said [D]it was b[G]ound to [D]happen one day
And the[G] Hollywo[D]od sign w[G]ill fal[D]l
The[G] f[D]inal ca[G]ll[D]
We[Em]ll, don't you fret, an[Bm]d don't be blue
C C7 (add little finger on third fret on G string)
You had me and I had you
It[G] was a g[D]ood lif[Em]e
I[C]t was a go[D]od, good li[G]fe
G D G D (for each line)
Tomorrow we could all be gone
When the Russian gangsters sell the bomb
And the waves come roaring from the sea
A hundred-foot swells over Venice Beach
Well[Em], don't be scared, and[Bm] take my hand
We'l[C]l swim into the Promised [C7]Land
It [G]was a good[D] life[Em]
It [C]was a goo[D]d, good li[G]fe
It[G] was a goo[D]d life[Em]
[C]It was a g[D]ood, good lif[G]e
G D G D (for each line)
Tomorrow a tiny cell might grow
In everyone, and it's not the cold
Or the hole in the sky will open wide
The aliens land on the 105
[Em]If it comes to that
[Bm]What can we do?
[C]You loved me and I lov[C7]ed you
[G]It was a go[D]od life[Em]
[C]It was a goo[D]d, good li[G]fe
[G]It was a goo[D]d life[Em]
[C]It was a goo[D]d, good life[G]
(Then the same chords again for the rest of the song: G, D Em; C, D, G).
I said a boom boom crash crash underneath the overpass
Burning buildings, flying glass
A good life
On the day the earth stood still, we won't have to pay our bills
As the mud slides down the hill, a good life
And we won't have to make our beds
Break out the booze, and like I said
Let's have a ball before we're dead
A good life
Let the pyres rise above
We'll go down in our sweet love
It was a good, good life
