[Verse 1]
                          D
I picked a good day for a recreational percocet
                             G
I've got an itch to just get high
                         A
I'm in the middle of the worst of it
                               D
These are the best years of my life

[Verse 2]
                           D
I've got the hankering for intellectual emptiness
                             G
I've got the need to ease my mind
                               A
I'll watch some re-runs on the TV set
                               D
These are the best years of my life

[Chorus]
              G
I was looking forward to
Staying here forever D 'Cause you asked me to Didn't think that I could do better G So I settled down In this ten-cent town A It's about to break me
[Verse 3] D I'm gonna mix a drink and try to drown this worthlessness G Call Mom and tell her I'm alright A Well he don't love me but he ain't gone yet D These are the best years of my life [Moody Guitar Solo] G - A - G - A - D - G - A - D - [Chorus] G I was looking forward to Staying here forever D 'Cause you asked me to Didn't think that I could do better G So I settled down In this ten-cent town A It's about to break me [Verse 1: Ashley Monroe] D I picked a good day for a recreational percocet G I've got an itch to just get high A I'm in the middle of the worst of it D These are the best years of my life D *G *single strum These are the best years of my life D These are the best years of my life

Song Review

This song packs a punch in an emotional way. From the title of the song, it says that the person singing is a positive and hopeful person, so even in the midst of her struggle and even if she is currently stuck in a rut and don’t know what to do, she still retains a positive outlook in life. Because indeed, life does get better. You just have to wait out the storm. Or bettery yet, cross it. Miranda and the gang never fails to amaze me. 🙂
