Artist: Weezer
Song:   The Good Life (Acoustic)

Tabbed by Josh Lambka (Burttioman)

This is the acoustic version of The Good Life by Weezer.  Chord names are 
listed above the tabs.  I tried to get the timing on the lyrics, which 
came pretty close, but if the didn't the chords will give youa a general
idea of how to play it.  Play of the intros 4 times at the beginning 
of the song. They both sound good, but the second one is a little 
easier to play.  Have fun!
