                     A Good Life- Jill Sobule
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:rainagain
Email:

Tuning: Standard. Capo on 2nd fret.

Sounds good with arpeggios or strumming. This is based on Jill's own great 
instructional video she put on youtube.


(Two quick strums, or one fast downwards arpeggio - plucking base note then three 
strings - per chord for verse and the chorus; like 2/2 timing. Bridge section is 
slower, more like 4/4 timing.)

VERSE:

      F      G        F    G
Tomorrow the ground may shake

       F       G       F       G
Like they said it was bound to happen one day

       F       G        F      G
And the Hollywood sign will fall

   F G      F  G
The final call

BRIDGE:

  Am                    Em
Well, don't you fret, and don't be blue

  C                    C7 (add little finger on third fret on G string)
You had me and I had you


CHORUS:

  F       G      Am
It was a good life

 F         G          F
It was a good, good life


   F         G           F         G        (for each line)
Tomorrow we could all be gone
When the Russian gangsters sell the bomb
And the waves come roaring from the sea
A hundred-foot swells over Venice Beach

    Am                    Em          
Well, don't be scared, and take my hand

    F                        F7
We'll swim into the Promised Land

   F         G        Am
It was a good life

   F        G         F
It was a good, good life   

  F         G        Am
It was a good life

F         G            F
It was a good, good life


F          G         F           G   (for each line)
Tomorrow a tiny cell might grow
In everyone, and it's not the cold
Or the hole in the sky will open wide
The aliens land on the 105


Am
If it comes to that

Em
What can we do?

F                     F7
You loved me and I loved you

F          G       Am
It was a good life

F           G         F
It was a good, good life

F           G        Am
It was a good life

F           G           F
It was a good, good life

(Then the same chords again for the rest of the song: F, G Am; F, G, F).

I said a boom boom crash crash underneath the overpass
Burning buildings, flying glass
A good life
On the day the earth stood still, we won't have to pay our bills
As the mud slides down the hill, a good life
And we won't have to make our beds
Break out the booze, and like I said
Let's have a ball before we're dead
A good life
Let the pyres rise above
We'll go down in our sweet love
It was a good, good life
