Intro: with violins etc!
G   let ring
G   let ring
                G
It's a hard life
                       D
When you feel down
                                      C
and nobody understands you
                                    G
They leave you hanging around
                                Am
you waste all your day
                        G
Miss all your night
                        Am
sit round just dreaming
        G
and write


                G
It's a hard life
                    D
When your alone
                                    C
cramped in your lonely little room
                                        G
underdressed just like the bone
                        Am
you walk in the streets
                                G
and people are so blind
                                                Am
and they won't give you their pennies
C                                        G
   They just don't have the time

                                    G
Oooooohhh! it's a hard life
                   C
out on the road
                                          C
you better check it out well first
                                    G
before you meet all the blows
                                    Am
and you won't like the walking
                                G
you'll get caught in the rain
                                        Am
have to sleep out by the highway
C                                      G
Lord you wish you never came!

outro:
G    C    G    C play these a few times and end on a C as the music continues 
on to "Giving it all away" which starts on a C

Cheers Justin!
