You make it easier when life gets hard

           C                    Am
And so I'm sailing, through the sea
      Dm7                 G
To an island, where we'll meet
                Em              Am
You'll hear the music, fill the air
        Dm7    G 
I put a flower in your hair

               C                   Am
And though the breezes through the trees
        Dm7                  G
Move so pretty, you're all I see
        Em                  Am
Let the world keep spinning round
    Dm7           G
You hold me right here, right now

Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
            Dm7              Am
Lucky to be coming home some day

C        Am        Em       G     C
Ooooh ooh-oooooh ooh-ooooooh...

    For the second C in the chorus where it’s like; lucky to have been where I have been
    Put your finger one fret above C, I know it has a name but I forgot it. It’s sounds better to me but see if you like it

  2. anyone thing the glee version sounds better?

  3. The strum pattern isn’t actually anything. Listen to the original song, and you’ll hear that they don’t really have a pattern. It’s more of a steady beat.

  4. Above the first I keep you with me in my heart it needs to be a Em

  5. I feel like it is much easier if you use just Dm instead of Dm7 or just F

  6. I love this song!

    Is there any way to tell the strum patterns on any song?
