C F C G C F C G C

CHORUS:
         C
I got my toes in the water, 
F
Ass in the sand
      C  
Not a worry in the world 
       G  
A cold beer in my hand
        F 	  	          
Life is good today
G                 C
_ Life is good to-day


VERSE:
C
Well the plane touched town 
       F
Just a-bout 3 o'clock
 	C                  G
And the city's still on my mind
C                      F
Bikinis and palm trees danced in my head
      C            G       C
I was still in the baggage line

VERSE:
C                           F
Concrete and cars are their own prison bars
     C                    G
Like this life I'm livin' in
        C
But the plane brought me farther
    F
I'm surrounded by water
    C       G          C
And I'm not going back again


CHORUS:
         C
I got my toes in the water, 
F
Ass in the sand

_ Life is good to-day

Yea, I'm leavin' G-A
          G                       F
And if it weren't for tequila and pretty senoritas
    G                 C	  	        	 
I'd have no reason to stay
C                    F
_ Adios and vaya con dios
                   C
Yea, I'm leavin' G-A
      G
Gonna lay in the hot sun 
    F 
And roll a big fat one
            G          C
And grab my guitar and play

VERSE:
C
The four days flew by
       F
Like a drunk Friday night
       C                 G
As the summer drew to an end
C                         F 	 
They can't believe that I just couldn't leave
      C       G          C 	 
And I bid...  adiu to my friends



VERSE:
(Slower and play each chord once and let ring)
C
Cuz my bartender
F
She's from the islands
    C                         G
Her body's been kissed by the sun
    C                    F
And coconut replaces the smell of the bar
      C                  G          C
And I don't know if it't her or the rum

CHORUS:

Thank you for being the only person to get this right. I was about to start my own tab (until I found yours) because every other version on here requires capos and didn't sound right when I tried to play it. Then I watched Zac play it live and it's clear to see his capo on the end of his headstock and he's playing C, G, and a barred F. This makes it easier to play the add-on notes. If this sounds accurate to you feel free to add it to your version, otherwise I'll post it as an intro version. I would just hate to add yet another tab for this.

e|--0-0-0-0------1-1-1-1-0----0-0-0-0---------------------------|
B|--1-1-1-1-3-1--1-1-1-1-1-1--1-1-1-1-3-1---0-0-1-3-------------|
G|----------0-0------------0----------0-0-----------------------|
D|---------------3-3-3-3-3-0------------------------------------|
A|--3-3-3-3-3-3---------------3-3-3-3-3-3-----------------------|
E|------------------------------------------3-3-3-3-------------|

This is the gist of it, he seems to play it a little differently each time. Also in the verse he does a bass walkdown from the bass c note to B then A before picking through the G chord. I'm personally having a hard time mimmicking his picking style, it looks like he uses a pick and plucks the lower strings with his middle/ring fingers. Thanks again, cheers

Can you not edit posts on here? This sounds a bit closer:


e|--0-0-0-0------1-1-1-1-0----0-0-0-0-------------------------|
B|--1-1-1-1-3-1--1-1-1-1-1-1--1-1-1-1-3----0-0-1-3------------|
G|----------0-0------------0----------0----0-0-0-0------------|
D|---------------3-3-3-3-3-0----------------------------------|
A|--3-3-3-3-3-3---------------3-3-3-3-3-----------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------3-3-3-3------------|

I'm a little confused with the chord diagrams you have on here. you tune down a half step but bar the first fret on all your chords. So this makes it back to a regular C and G and the only chord that sounds different is the F which tuned down a half step it just an E. Why not just leave it tuned normal and play regular C,E,G chords. It seems much easier than the difficult bar chords.
