(Verse I) 

[E]     
It was early one mornin’ 

[Asus2]
Playa del Carmen 

[Bsus2]                    [E]
That’s when I first met Jose
 
[E]
He had a 12 foot Schooner
 
[Asus2]
A 3 foot cooler

[Bsus2]                  [E]
Full of the catch of the day

[E]
And he was wrinkled from grinnin’

[Asus2] 
From all of the sun he had been in

       [Bsus2]               [E]
He was barefoot, cerveza in hand

[E]                        [Asus2]
He said “Gracias senor”, when I paid him too much for

[Bsus2]                [E]
All of the Snapper he had

[Asus2]                             [E] 
Now I told him my friend it ain’t nothin’

       [Bsus2]                 [E]
In the best broken Spanish I knew 

         [Asus2]
I said I make a good livin’

      [E] 
Back home where I’m from

   [Bsus2]        (NC)
He smiled and said Amigo me too 


(Chorus)
          [E]          [Asus2]
He said I fish and I play my guitar

[Bsus2]                     [E]
I laugh at the bar with my friends

[E] 
I go home to my wife
 
[Asus2]
I pray every night

[Bsus2] 
I can do it all over again


Instrumental:
[E],[E],[E],[E],[E],[Asus2],[Asus2],[Asus2],[Asus2],[Asus2],[Bsus2],[Bsus2],[Bsus2],
[Bsus2],[Bsus2],[E],[E],[E] 


(Verse II)
 
[E]
Somewhere over Texas 

[Asus2]
I thought of my Lexus
 
[Bsus2]                      [E]
And all the stuff I work so hard for

[E] 
And all the things that I’ve gathered

[Asus2] 
From climbing that ladder

[Bsus2]                  [E]
Didn’t make much sense anymore 

[Asus2]                               [E]
They say my nest egg ain’t ready to hatch yet

[Bsus2]                          [E] 
They keep holding my feet to the fire 

[Asus2]
They call it paying the price

        [E]
So that one day in life 

     [Bsus2]    (NC)   
I’ll have what I need to retire 


(Chorus)
 
         [E]         [Asus2]
And just fish, and play my guitar,

[Bsus2]                   [E]
Laugh at the bar with my friends,

[E] 
Go home to my wife
 
[Asus2]
And pray every night,

[Bsus2]               [E]
I can do it all over again


(Bridge)
 
       [Fm]                         [E]                    [Asus2]  [E]              
And to think that I thought for a while there that I had it made

         [Fm]                       [E]   [Asus2]
When the truth is I’m really just dying 

             [Bsus2]  
To live like Jose 


(Chorus)
Single Downward Strums

(NC)     [E]
And just fish
 
[Asus2]
Play my guitar

[Bsus2]                  [E] 
Laugh at the bar with my friends 

[E]
Go home to my wife 

[Asus2]
Pray every night 

[Bsus2]              [E]
I can do it all over again 


Instrumental:
[E],[E],[E],[E],[E],[Asus2],[Asus2],[Asus2],[Asus2],[Asus2],[Bsus2],[Bsus2],[Bsus2],
[Bsus2],[Bsus2],[E],[E],[E] until end.


Wouldn’t that be the life?
