Simple Life by Young Rising Sons

I wrote out the chords in a way that sounds good as whole chords,
but that's not the way it's actually written. I tabbed out the
verses, as they sound in the song. That's at the end. Enjoy, and
Please Rate!

[Verse 1]
G
  He lived in the mountains away from mankind
G
  Somethin’ from nothin’ I owe him
G        Cadd9
  Even a dime
Cadd9               G
  He left so much behind
G
  And when I discovered my grandfather’s life
G
  My mountains they turned into hills
G              Cadd9
  That I could climb
Cadd9              G
  I found a simple life

[Pre-Chorus]
  C                    G
I found what I’ve been missin’
      C             G
Right underneath my chin
  C                 G
I keep my eyes wide open
G
  Lettin’ daylight in

[Chorus]
G         Cadd9
I decided long ago
     Am               D
That I’d be more like him
        G                D
For the rain the sun the sleet or snow
       C      D      G
It’s a simple life I live
         G               Cadd9
If I was poor or rich or young or old
   Am             D
It all hangs on a string
            G              D
But when my day has come I hope they say
         C      D      G
It’s the simple life I live
         C      D      G
It’s the simple life I live

[Verse 2]
G
  I found an old box in the attic one night
G
  His dog tags from wars that he fought
G                 Cadd9
  Packed neatly inside
Cadd9              G
  He kept it all inside
G
  The photos and letters revealed so much truth
G
  The folded up flag made me cry
G               Cadd9
  Cause I never knew
Cadd9                G
  Here’s to a simple life

[Pre-Chorus]
  C                    G
I found what I’ve been missin’
      C             G
Right underneath my chin
  C                 G
I keep my eyes wide open
G
  Lettin’ daylight in

[Chorus]
G         Cadd9
I decided long ago
     Am               D
That I’d be more like him
        G                D
For the rain the sun the sleet or snow
       C      D      G
It’s a simple life I live
         G               Cadd9
If I was poor or rich or young or old
   Am             D
It all hangs on a string
            G              D
But when my day has come I hope they say
         C      D      G
It’s the simple life I live
         C      D      G
It’s the simple life I live

[Bridge]
G                     Cadd9
Every time I feel the heat
G                  Cadd9
I’ll remember everything
G                             Cadd9
All the words that you taught me
                   D
They’ll live on forever
       G         Cadd9
And so I decided long ago
   Am                  D
As life starts closin’ in
    G                 Cadd9    Am
I’d raise a glass and toast to all
            D
That it’s a simple life you live

[Chorus]
G         Cadd9
I decided long ago
     Am               D
That I’d be more like him
        G                D
For the rain the sun the sleet or snow
       C      D      G
It’s a simple life I live
         G               Cadd9
If I was poor or rich or young or old
   Am             D
It all hangs on a string
            G              D
But when my day has come I hope they say
         C      D      G
It’s the simple life I live
         C *    D *     G *
It’s the simple life I lived

C* = {x,x,x,12,13,12}
D* = {x,x,x,14,15,17}
G* = {x,x,x,12,15,15}

                                   He lived…
