2. Isa likes brandy and the way it hits her lips,

                  D                                     G

        D                                              G

    Working at a nightclub that was called “The Avenue”,

            D                                              G

    the bar men used to call her "Little Lisa, Looney Tunes",

                     G                            D

    she went down on almost anyone.

2. Some people wear their history like a map on their face,

             D                                G

    and Joey was an artist just living out of case,

                 G                                      D

    but his best word was his letters home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

             D                                             G

    His standard works of fiction about imaginary success,

              D                                           G

    the chorus girls in neon were his closest things to friends,

                    G                                    D

    but to a writer, the truth is no big deal.

    From the hard time living to the sleepless nights,

                    G                                            A

    and the black and blue body from the weekend fights, he'd say :

 

D                  G

 L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.

              A                                       G

You've got more than money and sense, my friend,

What you don't have now will come back again,

                    D                  G                       A     - G

you've got heart and you go in your own way.

 

                G                   D                  Bm             A

    On my last night on earth, I won't look to the sky,

               D                 G          D               A

    just breathe in the air and blink in the light.

                G                   D          Bm               A

    On my last night on earth, I'll pay a high price

          D                G                 D                  A

    to have no regrets and be done with my life.
