Verse 1
-------
F            C      F           C
I get to the party, but I'm too late
F         C        F                C
And I got stood up on my very first date
F           C       F                  C
I listen to country and everybody goes rock
F            C            F                     C   
I get to the dance floor, that's when the music stops

Pre-Chorus
----------
C                              F
It doesn't matter what I do, I just can't seem to win
C               G
But here I go again

And I say

Chorus
------
C              F
Hey that's the story of my life
  G                      F
I had a good plan but it didn't go right
C         F
Oh no I'm overdrawn
  G                        F
I check my account and the money's all gone
C        F
Why me I don't know what to think
  G                          F
I finally get aboard and the whole boat sinks
C        F      G     F
Seems to be the story of my life

Intro

Verse 2
-------
              C           F           C
I pick a slot machine and lose it all again
F          C          F                   C
But when I walk away, someone else always wins
F                C           F         C
When she finally calls me, I forget my phone
F            C             F                  C
And when I'm starving, you know the kitchen's closed

Pre-Chorus
----------
C                             F
It doesn't matter what I try, it all ends up the same
C               G
And here I go again

Chorus
------
C              F
Hey that's the story of my life
  G                      F
I had a good plan but it didn't go right
C         F
Oh no I'm overdrawn
  G                        F
I check my account and the money's all gone
C        F
Why me I don't know what to think
  G                          F
I finally get aboard and the whole boat sinks
C        F      G     F
Seems to be the story of my life

Bridge
------
C    F       G               F                  C
Just when it seems like it's turnin' 'round for me
C       F      G              F             C
There's always something that ends up happening
C F        G         F             C
I found my car but I can't find my keys
