Tuning: Standard. Capo on 2nd fret.

Sounds good with arpeggios or strumming. This is based on Jill's own great 
instructional video she put on youtube.


(Two quick strums, or one fast downwards arpeggio - plucking base note then three 
strings - per chord for verse and the chorus; like 2/2 timing. Bridge section is 
slower, more like 4/4 timing.)

VERSE:

G D G DTomorrow the ground may shake
G D G DLike they said it was bound to happen one day
G D G DAnd the Hollywood sign will fall
G D G DThe final call
BRIDGE:
Em BmWell, don't you fret, and don't be blue
C C7 (add little finger on third fret on G string) You had me and I had you CHORUS:
G D EmIt was a good life
C D GIt was a good, good life
G D G D (for each line)Tomorrow we could all be gone
When the Russian gangsters sell the bomb And the waves come roaring from the sea A hundred-foot swells over Venice Beach
Em Bm Well, don't be scared, and take my hand
C C7We'll swim into the Promised Land
G D EmIt was a good life
C D GIt was a good, good life
G D EmIt was a good life
C D GIt was a good, good life
G D G D (for each line)Tomorrow a tiny cell might grow
In everyone, and it's not the cold Or the hole in the sky will open wide The aliens land on the 105
EmIf it comes to that
BmWhat can we do?
C C7You loved me and I loved you
G D EmIt was a good life
C D GIt was a good, good life
G D EmIt was a good life
C D GIt was a good, good life
(Then the same chords again for the rest of the song: G, D Em; C, D, G). I said a boom boom crash crash underneath the overpass Burning buildings, flying glass A good life On the day the earth stood still, we won't have to pay our bills As the mud slides down the hill, a good life And we won't have to make our beds Break out the booze, and like I said Let's have a ball before we're dead A good life Let the pyres rise above We'll go down in our sweet love It was a good, good life
