Intro - x6 -: G Em C


G                            Em               C 
we were born with sun in our teeth and in our hair
   G                                     Em             C
when we get bored we like to sit around, sit around and stare
   G                               Em            C
at the mountains, st the birds, at the ocean, at the trees
   G                              Em          C          
we have fun, we have fun, we have fun when we please


  G                 Em         C
we wake up with the sun in our eyes
     G                   Em          C
it's no surprise that we get so much done
    G                         Em          C
but we always, yes we always, always have fun
    G                          Em          C
yes we always, yes we always, always have fun

Interlude: G Em C

G                  Em       C
why would you live anywhere else? 
G                  Em       C
why would you live anywhere else?
              G                           Em             C                                 
we've got the ocean, got the bay, got the sun, we've got the waves
G                Em        C
this is the only place for me


         Em       C
so leave the cold behind
                 Em                 C
we're gonna make it to the beach on time
           Em       C
yeah leave the cold behind
                 Em                 C
we're gonna make it to the beach on time


G                  Em       C
why would you live anywhere else? 
G                  Em       C
why would you live anywhere else?


G                                      Em             C
we saw the ocean, got the bay, got the sun, we've got the waves
G                Em     
this is the only place
G                Em
this is the only place
G                Em
this is the only place
G                Em
this is the only place
G                Em        C
this is the only place for me

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
