Am7 / Em7 / D / Cadd9 / G / Am7 / Em7 / D / Cadd9 / G / D / Cadd9 / x2

Am7              Em7  
Standing in line marking time
D               Cadd9          G
Waiting for the welfare dime
D                       Cadd9
'Cause they can't buy a job
Am7                      Em7  
The man in the silk suit hurries by
D                      Cadd9          G
As he catches the poor ladies' eyes
D                           Cadd9
Just for fun he says "get a job"

Chorus
G       Fmaj7   C                       Cadd9
////    ////    ///     That's just the way it is,
G       Fmaj7   C                       Cadd9
////    ////    ///     Somethings will never change,
G       Fmaj7   C                       Cadd9
////    ////    ///     That's just the way it is,
G       Fmaj7   C               Cadd9           
////    ////    ///     Ah, but don't you believe them.
Am7 / Em7 / D / Cadd9 / G / Am7 / Em7 / D / Cadd9 / G / D / Cadd9 /


They say, hey little boy you can't go where the others go
'Cause you don't look like they do
Said hey old man how can you stand
To think that way did you really think about it
Before you made the rules he said, Son

Chorus

Solo
Am7 / Em7 / D / Cadd9 / G / Am7 / Em7 / D / Cadd9 / G / D / Cadd9 / x5

G       Fmaj7   C                       Cadd9
////    ////    ///     That's just the way it is,
G       Fmaj7   C                       Cadd9
////    ////    ///     That's just the way it is,

Well they passed a law in '64
To give those who ain't got a little more
But it only goes so far
Because the law don't change another's mind
When all it sees at the hiring time
Is the line on the color bar

G       Fmaj7   C                       Cadd9
////    ////    ///     That's just the way it is,
G       Fmaj7   C                       Cadd9
////    ////    ///     That's just the way it is,
G       Fmaj7   C                       Cadd9
////    ////    ///     That's just the way it is,
