Gm F

    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
This is the life
                          Cm
The life meant for me and you
 
So I hope you’re here to live it too

        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>

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>
