That's LifeWords & Music by Dean Kay & Kelly Gordon
Recorded by Frank Sinatra, 1966
(D7) G B7 That's life - that's what all the people say; Em7 A7 You're ridin' high in April, shot down in May. G CM7 Bm7-5 Em7 But I know I'm gonna change that tune A9 Am7 D9 D+ When I'm back on top in June. G B7 That's life - funny as it seems, Em7 A7 Some people get their kicks steppin' on a dream; G F#m7 F7 Em But I don't let it get me down, A9 D9 G 'Cause this old world keeps goin' round. Bridge: G7 I've been a puppet a pauper, a pirate, a poet, A pawn and a king, C6 I've been up and down and over and out And I've learned one thing: A7 Each time I find myself flat on my face, D7 D9 D+ I pick myself up and get back in the race. G B7 That's life - I can't deny it, Em7 A7 I thought of quittin', but my heart just won't buy it. G G/F# Bm7-5 E If I didn't think it was worth a try A-9 A7 D+ D7 G G/F# Em Edim D7 I'd roll myself up in a big ball and die. (Last Time) A-9 A A7 D+ D7 G Am7 alt Gdim A7 G6 I'd roll myself up in a big ball and die.
