[Intro]

C (let ring and then pick thru) Em G  


[Verse]
C                           Am
Dear Haley, can you save me from the borrowed cloud I'm on 
Fm                  C  
All you gotta do is try, 
Em                       F  
Pray you're just getting by 

C                                Am
Hey wait I thought you'd made it How'd your bottled crown fall off 
Fm                       C
Tell me how'd you get so tired 
Em                F
Faded down to the wire 


[Bridge]
G                                    C - C/B - Am
Try living a lie and kicking out the same old guise 
Fm
Wasting time


[Verse]
C                Am
So very ordinary Wait until my bomb goes off 
Fm                     C
See the actors run and hide 
Em             F
Fake it all in stride 

C                            Am
One day we all can say we're gone And haunt the ground we're from 
Fm                   C
Everything's so open wide 
Em              F
Here within the divide 


[Bridge]
G                                    C - C/B - Am
Try living a lie and kicking out the same old guise 
Fm
Wasting time
 

[Chorus]
            C                 Am                 C           Am   
Aint it the life, Aint it the life , Aint it the life got no crime, 
Fm           C
Just sail on by 
Em      F 
Sail on by

            C                 Am                 C           Am
Aint it the life, Aint it the life , Aint it the life got no crime, 
Fm           C
Just sail on by 
Em      F
Sail on by 
C                    Em  G GGGGGG
Aint it the life

Wasting time


[Chorus]
            C                 Am                C           Am
Aint it the life, Aint it the life, Aint it the life got no crime
Fm           C
Just sail on by 
Em      F
Sail on by

            C                  Am                  C           Am
Aint it the life,  Aint it the life ,  Aint it the life got no crime,

Just sail on by 
Em      F
Sail on by 
            C
Aint it the life

Also:

At the end of the verse it goes
from Em quickly to Bb and back
down to the F.
