Dear Haley, can you save me from the borrowed cloud I'm on

All you gotta do is try, 
Em                       F  
Pray you're just getting by

Hey wait I thought you'd made it How'd your bottled crown fall off 
Fm                       C
Tell me how'd you get so tired

Faded down to the wire

So very ordinary Wait until my bomb goes off 
Fm                     C
See the actors run and hide 
Em             F
Fake it all in stride 

C                            Am
One day we all can say we're gone And haunt the ground we're from 
Fm                   C
Everything's so open wide 
Em              F
Here within the divide 

Bridge:

Aint it the life, Aint it the life , Aint it the life got no crime, 
Fm           C
Just sail on by 
Em      F 
Sail on by

            C                 Am                 C           Am
Aint it the life, Aint it the life , Aint it the life got no crime, 
Fm           C

Also:

At the end of the verse it goes
