                [Verse 1]
 
D                                      Bm
He put on his shirt carefully, making sure that the buttons matched up
              G
His sleeves were always too short
                               D                  A
But at least it meant he could always see his watch
             D
And often he checked the time
             Bm
And it would be stopped
                         G
He always thought it was broken
                                          D  A
But then he'd remember he had to wind it, oh
                    D                                   Bm
Though he knew some day he'd remember to wind it and it wouldn't work after all
                    G                             D                A
Maybe that would happen on the exact day he didn't think it was broken
 
 
[Chorus]
 
                      D
Isn't that the way it works
                      Bm
Isn't that the way it goes
                 G
While the fox he lurks
                      D
And while the rooster crows
A                         D
Isn't that the way things are
                        Bm
The way the world ain't flat
                         G                     D      A    D
But you can only run so far before you make it back
 
 
[Verse 2]
 
D                                                           Bm
He could drink from the sink by craning his head far to one side
                        G                      D
The day he figured that out, one of the horses died
A                 D
It was one of the twins that barely a week'd been alive
           Bm
It was the one who could barely stand
                 G                                             D                  A
We'd wrapped his legs with gauze and bandages from inside from one of the kitchen drawers
             Bm
We called him stretch
              G
Cuz he was so skinny and tall
                D
Momma said both twins rarely live with horses
                A
We was lucky to have one livin at all
              D                                            Bm
And me and my momma slept in the stall next to them in the bed of a pickup
                  G       D    A
All us kids piled in
                              D
I remember the momma horse lickin and cleaning up her newborn babies
A
She was working so hard (she was working so hard)
G                    D
She was working so hard (she was working so hard)
A               Bm
She was working so hard
                G
She was working so hard
                D
She was working so hard
                A
She was working so hard
 
 
[Chorus]
                      D
Isn't that the way it works
                      Bm
Isn't that the way it goes
                 G
While the fox he lurks
                      D
And while the rooster crows
 A                        D
Isn't that the way things are
                        Bm
The way the world ain't flat
                         G                     D      A
But you can only run so far before you make it back
 
 
                      Bm
Isn't that the way it works
                      G
Isn't that the way it goes
                 D
While the fox he lurks
                      A
And while the rooster crows
                          Bm
Isn't that the way things are
                         G
The way the world ain't flat
                    D                      A
You can only run so far before you make it back
                    Bm
You can only run so far
                     G
You can only run so far
            D                          A      D  G D  A  D
Before you make it, before you make it back
