                           Helluva Life - Frankie Ballard
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Cody

I am willing to figure out the intro guitar licks and the solos if someone wants them. 
Also, the outro has some extra lyrics that are just different phrases from the song that 
I can add in if anyone wants. Just wanted to get the chords out there for everyone.


CAPO 2


Tuning: Standard



VERSE 1:

E                     B
Saturday night and a six-pack girl
A                         B
A big star shining on a small town world
E                  B
Its a helluva life
A                  B
Its a helluva life


VERSE 2:

E               B
KC lights on a dirt road dance
     A                      B
You take that kiss just as far as you can
         E                B
Its a helluva life
           A              B
Oh it's a helluva life


CHORUS 1:

     E                        B
And pennies make dimes, and dimes make dollars
A                      B
Dollars buy gas and long neck bottles
 E                       B
Beer gets a barefoot country girl swaying
       A                         B
To a song that's playing on the radio station
E                    B
Bad times make the good times better
A                            B
Look in her eyes and you're gone forever
       E          B
On a helluva ride
          A
Yeah its a helluva life
B
Its a helluva life


SOLO 1



VERSE 3:

    E                     B
And we all have faith and we all have hope
   A                                B
But were all a little lost in the same damn boat
   E              B
Its a helluva life
          A              B
Yeah its a helluva life


BRIDGE:

                      E
Something about the night girl
                   B
When you got the right girl
               A
Sitting right beside you
                B
Looking at the sky girl
                E
Thinking about why were here
    B                        A        B
And where were going baby here we are all I know is



CHORUS 2:

    E                      B
Pennies make dimes, and dimes make dollars
A                      B
Dollars buy gas and long neck bottles
 E                       B
Beer gets a barefoot country girl swaying
       A                         B
To a song that's playing and the world starts fading
E                    B
Bad times make the good times better
A                            B
Look in her eyes and you're gone forever
       E          B
On a helluva ride
          A
Yeah its a helluva life
B
Its a helluva life


SOLO 2


BRIDGE:

                      E
Something about the night girl
                   B
When you got the right girl
               A
Sitting right beside you
                B
Looking at the sky girl
                E
Thinking about why were here
    B                        A        B
And where were going baby here we are all I know is


CHORUS 3:

    E                      B
Pennies make dimes, and dimes make dollars
A                      B
Dollars buy gas and long neck bottles
 E                       B
Beer gets a barefoot country girl swaying
       A                         B
To a song that's playing its the perfect combination
E                    B
Bad times make the good times better
A                            B
Look in her eyes and you're gone forever
       E          B
On a helluva ride
          A
Yeah its a helluva life
B
Its a helluva life


E  B  A  B x4

There are way less complicated ways to play this song, that use chords that are more commonly associated with traditional chords.
