Complicated Life Chords
Complicated Life
by The Kinks
from "Muswell Hillbillies"


D A A D x2

Verse 1:

Well I woke this morning with a pain in my neck,

G                                    D
A pain in my heart and a pain in my chest,

I went to the doctor and the good doctor said,

G                                                           D
You gotta slow down your life or you're gonna be dead,

G                                    D
Cut out the struggle and strife,

A                                 D
It only complicates your life.

Verse 2:

Well I cut down women, I cut out booze,

G                                         D
I stopped ironing my shirts, cleaning my shoes,

I stopped going to work, stopped reading the news,

G                                                        D
I sit and twiddle my thumbs cos I got nothing to do,

G                  D
Minimal exercise,

A                                      D (let ring)
To help uncomplicate my life,

(D ringing out through this line)
Gotta stand and face it; life is so complicated,


D                                              A
Ladi dah di dahdah, ladi dah di dah dah,

A                                                              D
You gotta get away from the complicated life, son,

D                                 A
Life is overrated, life is complicated,

A                                              D
Must alleviate this complicated life.


A G D x2

G                                    D
Cut out the struggle and strife,

A                                  D
It's such a complicated life.

Verse 3 (same chords as Verse 2);

Like old Mother Hubbard, I got nothin' in the cupboard,
Got no dinner and I got no supper,
Holes in my shoes, I got holes in my socks,
I can't go to work cos I can't get a job,

The bills are rising sky high,
It's such a complicated life,

Gotta stand and face it; life is so complicated,

Chorus x2


A                                                        D
Gotta get away from the complicated life, son,

A                                                        D
Gotta get away from the complicated life.

About the artist behind Complicated Life Chords:

The Kinks were an English pop/rock group formed in 1963, and categorised as a British Invasion band, along with the other members of the so-called Big Four (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who). Despite being less commercially successful than these three contemporaries, mostly because of a four-year ban from the United States in the mid-to-late 1960s, the Kinks are cited among them as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time and have 12 top 40 hits in America.[1]

The band's early hard-driving singles set a standard in the mid-1960s for rock and roll, while albums such as Face to Face,[2] Something Else, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, Arthur and Muswell Hillbillies are highly regarded by fans, critics, and peers, and are considered amongst the most influential recordings of the era.[3]
