1.     Woke up in London yesterday,

                                                          Bm

    found myself in the city near Piccadilly,

                                           A

    don't really know how I got here,

                                                  D

    I got some pictures on my phone.

                                                                   G

    New names and numbers that I don't know,

                                                         Bm

    addressed to places like Abbey Road.

                                                                        A

    Day turns tonight, night turns to whatever we want,

                                           D

    we're young enough to say ...

 

  D                                    G                                         Bm

Oh, this is gotta be the good life, this is gotta be the good life,

                                     A

this could really be a good life, good life.

  D                                                 G                                         Bm

Say, oh, got this feeling that you can't fight, like this city is on fire tonight,

                                           A                                D

oh, this could really be a good life, a good good life.

 

   D    - G       - Bm        - A

+     O......h, o........h, o.......h.

 

    D                                                          G

2.    To my friends in New York, I say hello,

                                                 Bm

    my friends in LA they don't know

                                                                       A

    where I've been for the past few years or so,

                                             D

    Paris, to China to Colorado.

                                                                       G

    Sometimes there's airplanes I can't jump out,

                                                                       Bm

    sometimes there's bullshit that don't work now.

                                                                A

    We've got our stories, but please tell me,

                                                 D

    what there's to complain about ?

 

   D                                            G

+     When you're happy like a fool,

                           Bm                                  A                              D

    let it take you over when everything is out, you gotta take it in.

 

  D                                    G                                         Bm

Oh, this is gotta be the good life, this is gotta be the good life,

                                     A

this could really be a good life, good life.

  D                                                 G                                         Bm

Say, oh, got this feeling that you can't fight, like this city is on fire tonight,

                                           A                      D

oh, this could really be a good life, a good life.

 

   D    - G       - Bm        - A

+    O......h, o........h, o.......h. (2x)

 

                   D                                          G

+  Hopelessly I feel like there might be something that I missed,

                   D                                     A

    hopelessly I feel like the window closes, oh, so quick.

                   D                                 G

    Hopelessly I'm taking a mental picture of you now,

                              D                                      A

    'cause hopelessly, the hopeless we have so much to feel good about.
