            E           A    D9   E      G#7sus4  
Some folks' lives  roll easy as a breeze

G#7                C#m7 Cm7 Bm7      
Drifting through a sum--mer night

              E     A      
Heading for a sunny day

     G#          C#m    C#m7    F#m     
 But most folks' lives, oh they stumble

B         E    
Lord they fall

G#7sus4            G#7            C#m7 Cm7  Bm7  
        Through no fault of their own

                 E           A              
Most folks never catch their stars


Bm            
   And here I am, Lord

    E                           A        
I'm   knocking at your place of business

D9                G#              C#   F#7-9  
   I know I ain't got no business here

Bm         Em7       A9       Dmaj7
   But you said if I ever got so low

      Gmaj7   C#  
I was busted,

F#              B             
   You could be trusted


             E           A    
 Some folks' lives  roll easy

D9             E     G#7sus4  
   Some folks' lives 

      G#7     C#m E/B  A     G#7  
never roll at all

              C#m        
Oh, they just fall

           F#m     
 They just fall

B7              E        A  D9  E  
    Some folks' lives
