Verse:
Gm                         F
The hills make me wanna run and play
Eb                    F
Every time I think of you
Gm                      F
And I wanna go up and sit right down
Eb                      F
And look at the ocean so blue
Pre-Chorus:
Cm                              F
I wanna feel the breeze blowing in my face
              Bb
And let all things hang loose
Cm
Whisper your name, Feel no pain
Eb        F
Relax and cruise
Chorus:
Bb
This is the life, the life I was given
Cm
This is the life, I love country living
Bb                                             Cm
This is the life, The life meant for me and you

So I hope you’re here to live it too

Verse:
Gm                                  F
I wanna get on my bike and ride that red dirt road
        Eb                   F
From the cane fields to the shore
       Gm                      F
I wanna skip stones with my cousins
    Eb                    F
As the ahi skim the ocean floor
Pre-Chorus:
   Cm                           F                    Bb
And as the sun goes down and the moon goes up, I can see the stars (see the stars)
     Cm
As we sit by that fire beneath our shack
    Eb           F
And jam our guitars
Chorus:
Bb
This is the life, the life I was given
Cm
This is the life, I love country living
Bb                                             Cm
This is the life, The life meant for me and you

So I hope you’re here to live it too

Bridge/Pre-Chorus:
Cm
Take the time to unwind
             Bb
And let the island sooth your soul
Cm
Feel the music everywhere
        Bb
And let aloha take control
Cm
Cause I can see the pain in your eyes
        Bb
From the pressure of today
Cm
Open your eyes, we’re in paradise
    Eb             F
And throw them all away
Chorus:
Bb
This is the life, the life I was given
Cm
This is the life, I love country living
Bb                                         Cm
This is the life, The life meant for me and you
