"Good Lives" by Eve 6
tabbed by Gage Brown

NOTE:  Since Eve 6 only uses one guitar, the guitar plays the following lead riffs for the entire song.  I have, however, provided the chords along with the lyrics for reference, incase you want to play it acoustic by yourself.

          C#m                          E
There's a plastic toy four door in the cereal box and

     A                            B
He's licking off the sugar of the breakfast of chumps

C#m                          A
Promise that forever we will never get better at

E                          B
Growing up and learning to lie

            C#m                         E
There is no floor thirteen, there's not even a second story

        A                    B
You got one to tell and it's sad as hell

C#m                          A
Promise that forever we will never get better at

E                          B
Growing up and learning to lie

C#m                  E
Grad school kid with wall street glib

      A                    B
Got a suit and a tie and a record with winners

C#m                          A
Promise that forever we will never get better at

E                          B
Growing up and learning to lie

A
I'm on my way back home now

E       B         A
   Good lives are gold, like the oldest story

E       B       A
   Will mine be told, while I'm still young and horny?

E    B       A
   I know my role is to be a confusion

E                     B                A
   Set the clock back when I'm growing old


[Repeat intro x1]

     C#m                 E
This kid came over and I let him crash

       A                          B
But he went into my wallet and he grabbed my cash

C#m                          A
Promise that forever we will never get better at

E                          B
Growing up and learning to lie

        C#m                  E
And the good girlfriend, she turned me in

      A                         B
I was lying with my eyes about adulterous sin

C#m                          A
Promise that forever we will never get better at

E                          B
Growing up and learning to lie

A
I'm on my way back home now


[repeat chorus]

C#m        E            B                         A
   I never wanted to be like you or all the rest

C#m            E                     B                       A
   I've always been the first one to settle for second best

C#m        E
   I never wanted to be

B          A
   I never wanted to be

C#m        B            A
   I never wanted to be like you


[repeat chorus]

E                            A
Promise that forever we will never get better at

C#m                        B
Growing up and learning to lie

[repeat this last part 3 times]

            E
Promise it

[Also, if you want the bassline, it's entirely root notes of the chords.
C#m = 4th fret A-string (actually 2nd fret low B-string; it's recorded on a 5-string, but most people don't have one.)
E = open E-string
A = open A-string
B = 2nd fret A-string]
