Intro: Riff

E5                           Asus2
Al, he sells records down on old st. charley’s street
C#m               C#madd9             G#5              Asus2 
He’s cleaning up fat tuesday’s mess he keeps the sidewalks neat
E5                              D5 
And he just lost his father and he just lost his wife
   C#m                                     G#5          Asus2
And if it wasn’t for the music he couldn’t get on with his life

    B      Asus2    G#5  Asus2 
And he knows what I know
         B        Asus2        G#5  Asus2
It’s not all that hard to survive
             B            Asus2       G#5       Asus2 
You take the good and the bad and the time in between
    C#m        G#5 Asus2                                    
It lets us know          we’re alive

play Riff

         E5                           
Well now be be’s singing gospel
            Asus2
And down on bourbon she sings the blues
     C#m             C#madd9               G#5        Asus2
She plays on all my heart strings curls my toes up in my shoes
    E5
And she knows what I’m after
         D5
Chase my dreams with all my might
             C#m                              G#5         Asus2
She says you shouldn’t be so anxious and deep down I know she’s right


    B      Asus2    G#5  Asus2 
And he knows what I know
         B        Asus2        G#5  Asus2
It’s not all that hard to survive
             B            Asus2       G#5       Asus2 
You take the good and the bad and the time in between
    C#m        G#5 Asus2 
It lets us know          we’re alive

Play Riff

                                    1/2    1/4     1/4 
       E5         Asus2            C#m - C#madd9 - C#m
we’re alive  we’re alive    we’re alive
       1/2    1/2
       G#5 - Asus2
we're alive

     B  
Well get on board the rocket
      G5       Asus2
Step right into the front car
    B
You know life’s a roller coaster
   G5          Asus2
It ain’t got no safety bar
      B
Raise your voices up with laughter
      G5          Asus2
Bring it in with one big sigh
      C#m                G5 - Asus2
Consecrated in the wonder  ....    we’re alive

Play Riff

E5                        Asus2
Norman he plays music but only in my dreams
C#m              C#madd9      G#5       Asus2 
Shows me all the beauty that soulful music brings
E5                                 D5 
But sometimes he’s a spectre and I wake up clenched with fear
    C#m                   G#5         Asus2
But lesson good or bad he always keeps me clear

    B      Asus2    G#5  Asus2 
And you know what I know
         B        Asus2        G#5  Asus2
It’s not all that hard to survive
             B            Asus2       G#5       Asus2 
You take the good and the bad and the time in between
    C#m        G#5 Asus2 
It lets us know          we’re alive

E5 - D5 - C#5 - C5 x 6
