Intro

C Dm G C x2

Verse

C                                       Dm

Once again I wake up alone on the wrong side of my bed

G                                                               C

And once again you begin your dancing nakedly on the right side of my head

C                                       Dm

It’s for a lack of better words that I can hardly speak my soul

G                                                                           C-C-C (fade)

And I’m feeling what I’m feeling when I’m feeling when it’s time to lose control, my love

Chorus

F                       G       Am Am Am        Am Am/G pull off to open

And once again we’re off to war

F               G                    Am~

But I can’t agree with what we’re fighting for

F                 G                C----G------Am~-----G~     F

And that’s not all, because every time she smiles I see her soul

G~       

When I smile what a wonderful life

Bridge

C Dm G C x2

Verse

C       

It’s true I used to try

                     Dm

But then I gave up, I learned it doesn’t really matter

                        G

What I do ain’t enough to appease or to please

                                     C

All my well meaning deeds seem to all go up in smoke

C                                                               Dm

And every time I look into these smoke filled skies I wonder what she’s doing, why I

volunteered to die

G                                                       C

But tonight I will fight for my life so I might see my wife again

Chorus

F               G                   Am Am Am    Am/Am/G pull off to open

I explained to her that I’d be back

F                  G            Am~

When I gave my word that the fighting wouldn’t last

F               G                  C~-----G~-----Am~------(G)       F

But despite my pact, I know that every breath I draw might be my last

      G 

And I smile, it’s been a wonderful life

Verse

C                                        Dm

Goddamn(-it), another summer in the city and

                                   G

I never seen a girl look so pretty as you

When you smile oh you’re wild for a while

        C

I was hoping I might see you again

C                                                

And I know (I know)that everybody is willing to go

Dm

And I find(I find) I’ll turn it all and leave on a dime

G                                            C 

If I leave tonight, screw what’s right, I can make it home by dawn

Chorus

F                 G                    Am Am Am    Am Am/G pull off to open 

And I was told, “Boy, prepare for war!”

F                 G                             Am~

But they failed to mention what I’d be fighting for

F                   G

So I fight for this:

C-------------G-----Am                      F

The fact that as I pass away, I’ll feel her kiss

G               C

When I smile, what a wonderful life

C               G

Me oh my, what a wonderful life
