Frank Sinatra Song Thats Life
Demo Chords Lyrics & Pdf

Note that this song I have listed here under Frank Sinatra but the version this video is following is the David Lee Roth version. I believe the Frank version is pretty much the same in terms of the chords and the 1/2 step move done near the end. I'm using a capo on the 2nd fret as well.

The chords you'll need for this one are as follows:

  • G
  • Em
  • Am7
  • D7
  • D
  • G7
  • B7
  • A7
  • D#
  • G#
  • C7
  • Fm
  • A#
  • A#m
  • B
  • E
  • Eb
  • G#7

As you can see if you add in that extra one half step chord change, it adds a bunch more chords and complexity to the song. 

For rhythm here I'm using a down up down up down down up down up and repeat for the most part except when the song goes into the G7 and then it's mainly just a shuffle pattern.

As this song moves along a a good clip, there isn't any guitar lead work here.


Frank Sinatra Song Thats Life Lyrics

That's life (that's life) - That's what all the people say
You're riding high on Monday - Shot down in May but a
I ain't never gonna change my tune
When I'm back on top - in the month of June

I said that's life (that's life) - Ain't as funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks - Stompin' on a dream but a
I don't never let it get me down
Cause that big ol world - keeps spinnin' 'round

Been a puppet, pirate, a poet, a pauper - a pawn and a king
Been up and down and over and out - and I know one thing
Each time - that I find myself - flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

That's life (that's life) - And I can't deny it
Many times I thought of quitting babe - But my heart wouldn't buy it
If I didn't think it was worth one try - I'd jump - right on a big bird
And I'd fly

Been a puppet, poet, pirate, pauper, now I'm a king
Been up - down - I know one thing
Each time - that I find myself - flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

That's life (that's life) - And I can't deny it
Many times I thought of quitting babe - But my heart wouldn't buy it
If I didn't think it was worth one try
I'd just roll myself up - in a big ball- and fly ------------Oh yeah
