This is the life    (video)    (intro)    (midi)

 

    Am - F - C - Em

 

                 Am                          

1. Oh, the wind whistles down

            F

    the cold dark street tonight,

                    C                                    - Em

    and the people they were dancing           to the music vibe.

                  Am

    And the boys chase the girls with the curls in their hair,

                   F

    and the shy tormented youth sit way over there,

                   C                                                                      Em

    and the songs, they get louder, each one better than before.

 

                                     Am

And you’re singing the songs, thinking this is the life,

                                         F       

and you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size.

                              C

Where you gonna go ? Where you gonna go ?

                                         Em

Where you gonna sleep tonight ?

 

                                                                            

+ repeat CHORUS 

 

                                             Am       - F - C - Em

+ Where you gonna sleep tonight ?

 

                      Am

2. So you’re heading down the road in your taxi for four,

                        F

    and you’re waiting outside Jimmy’s front door,

            C                                                    Em

    but nobody’s in and nobody’s home ‘til four.

                    Am

    So you’re sitting there with nothing to do,

                    F

    talking about Robert Riger and his motley crew,

                C                                                                                  Em

    and where you’re gonna go and where you’re gonna sleep tonight ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                                         

                                     Am

And you’re singing the songs, thinking this is the life,

                                         F       

and you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size.

                              C

Where you gonna go ? Where you gonna go ?

                                         Em

Where you gonna sleep tonight ?

 

                                             Am       - F - C - Em

+ Where you gonna sleep tonight ?

 

+ Am - F - C - Em

 

                                                                         

+ CHORUS  (4x)

 

     - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -   Am       - F - C - Em - Am

+ Where you gonna sleep tonight ?
