A Good Life  Jill Sobule

A Good Life- Jill Sobule

Tabbed by:rainagain
Tuning: Standard. Capo on 2nd fret.
Sounds good with arpeggios or strumming. This is based on Jill's own great
instructional video she put on youtube.
(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
