The Cost Of Living.
Merle Haggard & Don Henley.
Album: Cass County.

Intro: F# B Bmaj7 B C#

F#
Some folks don't like working hard, some folks don't like rain,
F#                               C#                    F#  C#
Some folks love to tell you, all about their aches and pains, 
F#                                                B
Me, I take the hand I'm dealt and I play it as it lays,
B                F#    C#            F#   C#
It's the cost of living and everyone pays.

F#                                     Bmaj7       F#
You can't live in memories of all your golden yesterdays,
F#                       Bbm7  F#/A#      C#           
Or spend your whole life grieving for the one that got away,
F#                                            F#/A#   B
Common sense says "let her go" but your heart disobeys,
                 F#    C#             F#
It's the cost of living, and everyone pays.

B                        F#
Blue shadows falling all around me,
Ebm           Ab7      Ebm    C#
Still I don't regret a single day.

Break: F# F#7 B F# Bmaj7 F# C# C#6 F#

F#
I look in the mirror now, I see that time can be unkind,
F#                           C#                 C#7
But I know every wrinkle and I earned every line,
    F#                                              B
So, wear it like a royal crown when you get old and gray,
                 F#    C#            F#  B
It's the cost of living and everyone pays,
                 F#    C#           Bmaj7 F# Bmaj7 C# C#7 F#
It's the cost of living and everyone pays.
