The Life You Chose
By: Jason Isbell


Intro chords: G Bm A


G       D                    A
Who are you if not the one I met
G        D                          A
One July night before the town went wet
G        D                   A
Jack and coke in your mama's car
                     G        D  A
You were reading The Bell Jar

G         D                         A
Where are you if you're not on your own
G      D                    A
Always lonely, never quite alone
G           D                          A
Where's the Jesus that you swore you'd find
                  G          D  A
After running the last line


Chorus:
G
Are you living the life you chose
Bm                                A 
Are you living the life that chose you
G
Are you taking the grown up dose
Bm                              A 
Do you live with a man who knows you
A                        G  
Like I thought I did back then
Bm                  A            G      Bm  A
But I guess I never did, who did I kid?


G     D                     A
I got lucky when I finished school
G          D                   A
Lost three fingers to a faulty tool
G       D                          A
Settled out of court, I'm no one's fool
         G         D  A
You probably knew


G           D                    A
There's plenty left to make a getaway
G           D                             A
I've spent enough nights in the bluegrass state
G        D                                 A
We could go somewhere where people stay up late
            G          D  A
Or just somewhere new


Chorus:
G
Are you living the life you chose
Bm                                A 
Are you living the life that chose you
G
Are you taking the grown up dose
Bm                              A 
Do you live with a man who knows you
A                        G  
Like I thought I did back then
Bm                  A            G      Bm  A
But I guess I never did, who did I kid?


Bridge:
Em          A            D                G      
Here I am inviting you to throw your life away
  Em           A           D
A victim of nostalgia maybe take away
Em             A                 D                 G 
Just tonight I realized that I am still in your backseat
Em               A                D           A 
Nothing I've had since has meant a thing to me


Chorus:
G
Are you living the life you chose
Bm                                A 
Are you living the life that chose you
G
Are you taking the grown up dose
Bm                              A 
Do you live with a man who knows you
A                        G  
Like I thought I did back then
Bm                  A            G      Bm  A
But I guess I never did, who did I kid?
