Life Is Good Blues  Laura Veirs

Beautiful song from the incredible Laura?s July Flame album.
The chords are easy but this one is very best suited to alternate picking for the
bass notes on the Em, Am7 and C chords.
I've put the picking patterns at the foot of the tab!
Ok. It's in standard tuning, capo 3rd fret.
Chords relative to capo?d position
i.e. Am7 is actually a Cm7, G is actually Bb and so on!
Verse 1
[Em]Life is good when you dance all night
And the [Am7]world trans-[C]mits electric [Am7]power[C]
[Em]Messages you send to Mars
Came [Am7]from a crown of [C]flowers[Am7] [C]
Chorus 1
Have you [G]danced a-[F]way the [Am7]hours?[C]
Have you [G]danced a-[F]way the [Am7]hours?[C]
Verse 2
[Em]Life is good when the band is smokin' hot
[Am7] The drummer [C]drums 'cause it's the [Am7]last chance that he [C]got
[Em]Boats light up the river in a string of flame
[Am7] Life is [C]good[Am7] [C]
Chorus 2
When you [G]know he [F]feels the [Am7]same thing[C]
When you [G]know he [F]feels the [Am7]same thing[C]
[Em] [Am7] [C] [Am7] [C]  
[Em] [Am7] [C] [Am7] [C]  
Verse 3
[Em]Go in soft like the dawn
And tender green like the shoots of [Am7]spring
Un-furling [C]on the lawn[Am7] [C]
[Em]Over dale over dale
Over sea swell over sea [Am7]swell
Never [C]play the devil's [Am7]pawn[C]
Chorus 3 / out
Cause you [G]know he'd [F]do the [Am7]same thing[C]
Yeah you [G]know he'd [F]do the [Am7]same thing[C]
Yeah you [G]know he'd [F]do the [Am7]same thing[C]
Yeah you [G]know he'd [F]do the [Am7]same thing[C]
[Em] [Am7] [C]
