Album of the Year  The Good Life

Standard Tuning
This is my first tab which I transcribed from an acoustic version. Sounds right
to me, hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Am7 G/B F/C (you can substitute F if you'd like)

Am7* Intro (x4) before the D minor play this instead

Dm G C G/B Am7*(x2)
The first time that I met her I was throwing up in the ladies room stall
[Dm]She asked me if I need[G]ed anythi[C]ng I said I thin[G/B]k I spilled my drin[Am7]k
G Am7*(x2)
And that's how it started or so I'd like to believe
Dm G C G/B Am7*(x2)
She took me to her mother's house outside of town where the stars hang down
[Dm]She said she'd nev[G]er seen someone s[C]o lost, I said [G/B]I'd never felt so fo[Am7]und
G D Am7*(x2)
and then I kissed her on the cheek and so she kissed me on the mouth whoa whoa whoa
Dm G C G/B Am7*(x2)
The spring was popping daises up round rusted trunks and busted lawn chairs
[Dm]We moved into a[G] studio in Cou[C]ncil Bluffs to s[G/B]ave a couple buc[Am7]ks
G Am7*(x2)
Where the mice came out at night, neighbors were screaming all the time
Dm G C G/B Am7*(x2)
We'd make love in the afternoons to Chelsea Girls and Bachelor Number 2
[Dm]I'd play for her some son[G]gs I wrote, she'd[C] joke and say I'm s[G/B]hooting through the r[Am7]oof
G Am7*(x2)
I'd say they're all for you dear I'll write the Album of the Year.
[Dm]And I know she loved me then, I[G] swear to God she did
[C]It was the way she'd bite my [G/B]lower lip and push her h[Am7]ips against my hips
Dm G/B Am7*(x4)
and dig her nails so deep into my skin.
(Mute Strings) Fast Strum
The first time that I met her I was convinced I had finally found th[Am7]e one
(Mute Strings) Fast Strum
She was convinced I was under the influence of all those drunken romant[Am7]ics
G Am7*(x2)
I was reading Fante at the time I had Bukowski on the mind
Dm G C G/B Am7*(x2)
She got a job at Jacobs serving cocktails to the local drunks
[Dm]Against her will [G]I fit the bill I pe[C]rched down at t[G/B]he end of the ba[Am7]r
G Am*(x2)
She said, Space is not just a place for stars I gave you an inch
you want a house with a yard
Bu[Dm]t I know she loved me once, but those da[G]ys are done
[C]She used to call me ev[G/B]eryday from a pay phone [Am7]on her break for lunch
j[Dm]ust to say she can't[G] wait to come hom[C]e
Ohh[G/B]hh Ohhhh To come [Am7]home Ohh[F/C]hh Ohhhhh
C G/B Am7*(x4)
to come hooooooooome come home
Dm G C G/B Am7*(x2)
The last time that I saw her she was picking through which records were hers
[Dm]Her clothes were packed in boxe[G]s, with some[C] pots and pans and[G/B] books and a toaster[Am7]
Just then a [G]mouse scurried across the floor
we [C]just started laughing til it didn't hur[G]t
ju[Am7]st started laughing til it didn't [F/C]hurt
ju[C]st started laughing til it didn't hurt[G]
Am7 F/C end on C
just started laughing 'til it didn't hurt
