Status Quo – Living On An Island tab
Living On An Island Status Quo Whatever You Want 1979 A lovely one to strum along to. Innit lovely? If you want to strum along to the record then you will need a capo on the second fret. You can play it without a capo but it will put it in the key of G (as they do it live). (So obviously I have given you the shapes not the actual chords) UPDATE: After nailing the bassline I have found some inversions and extensions that I didn't see before. NOTE: The bass changes the root note - not the guitar. INTRO: |G| |C| |G| |C| |F| |C| |Csus4 C| G Easy when you're number one Em Everybody say you're having fun G Smiling for the public eye Em When your body say you wanna die Am D Living on an island Em Looking at another line G Amadd11 Waiting for my friend to come G And we'll get high G Hugh he got a real nice place Em Cruxie gonna be there soon G And I just want to see his face Em I'm getting lonely in my empty room Am D Living on an island Em Working at another line G Am/G Waiting for my friend to come G And we'll get high Dm7 C Passing time away in blue skies Dm7 C Thinking of the smile in her eyes B7sus4 E Easy, it's easy A Living on an island F#m Oh boy, we're having fun A Living on an island F#m Thinking 'bout the things I've done Bm E Living on an island F#m Searching for an other line A Bm/A Waiting for my friend to come A And we'll get high A Dm6 Waiting for my friend to come N.C.

Something like that. I would play the Amadd11 thusly: 557555
