[Chorus]
C#m                             A
I can't surf, I can't skate but I'll do it all the same 
E                       B
till the end of my days oh 
C#m                             A
On this Earth I must wait until death take me away 
E                                          B
so if it's all the same to you I'd like to wait in my own way 
C#m                            A
I can'f surf I can't skate but I'll do it all the same, 
E                                  B
Live down by the sea and watch the sun go down each day  
C#m                               A
On this Earth I must wait til the end of my days, 
E                                          B
so If it's all the same to you I'd like to wait 
               C#m     A     E     B
Living life my own way.

[Verse]
        C#m                     A
Time is money to many but to me time is more of a Penny Board, 
E              B
rolling down a steep hill towards 
  C#m                   A
a sharp bend, no way to stop it, 
            E                             B
just got to hold on, and hope for a happy ending.
    C#m                       A
For money I may work, but for play I will live, love, 
E                 B
laugh 'til I have nothing more to give, 
  C#m                     A
I know that it sounds so simple,
                E                          B
that's why I’ll wait for the waves to roll away, I will say…

[Chorus]
C#m                             A
I can't surf, I can't skate but I'll do it all the same 
E                       B
till the end of my days oh 
C#m                             A
On this Earth I must wait until death take me away 
E                                          B
so if it's all the same to you I'd like to wait in my own way 
C#m                            A
I can'f surf I can't skate but I'll do it all the same, 
E                                  B
Live down by the sea and watch the sun go down each day  
C#m                               A
On this Earth I must wait til the end of my days, 
E                                          B
so If it's all the same to you I'd like to wait 
               C#m     A     E     B
Living life my own way.  

[Verse]
        C#m              A
Playing cool for pride's protection is a 
            E                             B
fool-proof way to lose all your direction, 
         C#m                     A
its self reflection, in the warm light of day, 
                              B
keeping my head from drifting too far away

        C#m                          A
when my soul is doing battle with my head,
         E                  B
lying in bed with thoughts, heavy as lead, 
  C#m                  A
I tumble, fever dreams rumble 
                E                          B
that's why I’II wait for the waves to roll away I will say...
   
[Chorus]
C#m                             A
I can't surf, I can't skate but I'll do it all the same 
E                       B
till the end of my days oh 
C#m                             A
On this Earth I must wait until death take me away 
E                                          B
so if it's all the same to you I'd like to wait in my own way 
C#m                            A
I can'f surf I can't skate but I'll do it all the same, 
E                                  B
Live down by the sea and watch the sun go down each day  
C#m                               A
On this Earth I must wait til the end of my days, 
E                                          B
so If it's all the same to you I'd like to wait 
               C#m     A     E     B
Living life my own way.
 
[Bridge] 
C#m  A  E  B

F#m                   A
Breathe in deep those peaks are steep 
       E                      B
get up get up there's a whole world to be playing in
F#m                   A
Breathe in deep those peaks are steep  
        E                       B
get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up

C#m  A  E  B x2
 
[Outro]
C#m                             A
I can't surf, I can't skate but I'll do it all the same 
E                       B
till the end of my days oh 
C#m                             A
On this Earth I must wait until death take me away 
E                                          B
so if it's all the same to you I'd like to wait in my own way 
C#m                            A
I can'f surf I can't skate but I'll do it all the same, 
E                                  B
Live down by the sea and watch the sun go down each day  
C#m                               A
On this Earth I must wait til the end of my days, 
E                                          B
so If it's all the same to you I'd like to wait 
               C#m     A     E     B
Living life my own way.
