I woke up early with a pounding in my head

I'd been out the night before with all my friends
D         G              D                G

You're goin' if I have to drag your butt to church

Made it through the Sunday sermon wide awake

Bm                          F#m
We said a prayer for cousin Michael in Iraq
Bm                          F#m
We're all aware that he may never make it back
Bm                         F#m
We talked about the way we missed his stupid jokes
G          D/F#          Em7                A
And how he loved to be a soldier more than most


D         G                  D                G
I lay in bed that night and thought about the day
            D              G              D     G
And how my life is like a roller-coaster ride
D            G               D               G
The ups and downs and crazy turns along the way
        D               G                 D
It'll throw you off if you don't hold on tight
A                         G
You can't really smile until you shed some tears
A                       G (walkdown)
I could die today or I might live on for years
D            G             D         G
I love this crazy tragic, sometimes almost magic
D       G  A/E    D
Awful, beautiful life
D            G             D         G
I love this crazy tragic, sometimes almost magic

Awful, beautiful life
