I loved the production and the lyrics of this song. The way that he executed the song, the feel and energy in his vocals, everything gave this song a real feel. The rhythm felt right, the bass felt right and the chords were interesting, especially that Ab Major chord. It brought a sense of power to the song. What do you think about this song? Comment below.

[INTRO] E Ab C#m B x2
[VERSE]
 E                    Ab
Well I grew up in a real town
            C#m               B
Where the prom queen had a plastic crown 
        E                Ab
And we really did just drive around 
                      C#m    B
'Cause there wasn't sh!t to do
     E                  Ab
We didn't know we were real broke
C#m                 B
Daddy rolled them real smokes
       E           Ab
We drank RC, no real Coke
          C#m          B
But our neighbor had a pool

[PRE-CHORUS]
E             Ab              C#m
We got green grass and two trees 
 B
Whoa oh oh oh oh
 E                 Ab        C#m
But it ain't like what's on TV
B
Whoa oh oh oh oh

[CHORUS]
        E        Ab       C#m     A
This is real life in the real world
          E             Ab
We ain't talking to no models
        C#m   A
We got real girls
         E    Ab        C#m   A
We get real low, we get real high
          E         Ab      C#m       A
It ain't all good baby but it's all right 
      E
Real life

[INSTRUMENTAL] E Ab C#m B x2

[VERSE] 
          E
We got a dive bar
         Ab                  C#m
With a real band, they play too loud
             B
And they're real bad
           E              Ab
But we're real boys so we still dance
        C#m              B
And we stay out way too late
          E                     Ab
Hit the Waffle House for some real food
            C#m             B
But that waitress, she's real rude
          E             Ab                C#m       B
She got real problems but we do too so we tip her anyway


E                Ab            C#m  B
That's just the way that it is Whoa oh oh oh oh
E                 Ab          C#m   B
That's just the way that we live Whoa oh oh oh oh

[CHORUS]
        E        Ab       C#m     A
This is real life in the real world
          E             Ab
We ain't talking to no models
        C#m   A
We got real girls
         E    Ab        C#m   A
We get real low, we get real high
          E         Ab      C#m       A
It ain't all good baby but it's all right 
      E
Real life

[INSTRUMENTAL] E Ab C#m B x2

        E              Ab
We find real love, get real hurt 
      C#m             B
Fall real hard, shake off the dirt 
       E            Ab
Pray to God, let's make a deal 
C#m             B
I guess it just got real

[INSTRUMENTAL] E Ab C#m B x2

         E    Ab        C#m   A
We get real low, we get real high
          E         Ab      C#m       A
It ain't all good baby but it's all right 
      E
Real life
E                   Ab         C#m   B
This ain't no fairy tale, it's real life
