The Life
Written by Casey Beathard & James T. Slater
Recorded by Kenny Chesney

(Capo on 3)

Intro.:  |(D) |(G) |(A) |(D)

(Verse)
It was (D)early one mornin', (G)Playa del Carmen, (A)that's when I first met (D)Jose
He had a 12 foot Schooner, a (G)3 foot cooler, (A)full of the catch of the day (D)

(Verse)
And he was (D)wrinkled from grinnin' from all of the (G) sun he had been in
He was (A)barefoot, Cerveza in (D)hand
He said gracias senor when I (G)paid him too much for, (A)all of the Snapper he had (D)

(Pre-Chorus)
Now I (G)told him my friend it ain't (D)nothin' in the (A)best broken Spanish I (D) knew
I said I (G)make a good livin' (D)back home where I'm from, he (A)smiled and said amigo me too

(Chorus)
He said (D)I fish and I (G)play my guitar, I (A)laugh at the bar with my (D) friends
I go home to my wife, I (G)pray every night, I can (A)do it all over (D)again

Solo:  / / / |(G) |(A) |(D)

(Verse)
Some-(D)where over Texas I (G)thought of my Lexus and all the (A) stuff I work so hard (D) for
And all the things that I've gathered from (G)climbing that ladder, didn't (A)make much sense anymore (D)

(Pre-Chorus)
They say my (G)nest egg ain't ready to (D)hatch yet, they keep (A)holding my feet to the fire (D)
They call it (G)paying the price so that (D)one day in life, I'll (A)have what I need to retire

(Chorus)
And just fish (D) and (G)play my guitar and (A)laugh at the bar with my (D) friends
Go home to my wife and (G)pray every night, I can (A)do it all over (D) again

(Bridge)
And to (Em)think that I thought for a (F#m)while there that I had it (G) made (F#m)
When the (Em)truth is I'm really just (F#m) dying (G) to live like Jo-(A)-se

(Chorus)
And just fish, (D) (G)play my guitar and (A)laugh at the bar with my (D) friends
Go home to my wife and (G)pray every night, I can (A)do it all over (D) again

Solo:  / / / |(G) |(A) |(D) Wouldn't that be the life?
       |(D) |(G) |(A) |(D) Wouldn't that be the life?

Outro.:  |(D) |(G) |(A) |(D) | --- repeat to fade
