Thats The Way It Is  Jo Dee Messina

[G]Everybody wants an e[D]asy ride on the
[A]merry go round that we call life
[G]Take a drive on cr[D]uise control then you
[A]wake to find it's a winding road
[G]I had my dr[D]eams in view when the
[A]money ran out and the engine blew
[G]Hung my tears o[D]ut to dry then my
[A]dreams fell out of that clear blue sky
[Dm]And I, [Bb]I was walking the cl[C]ouds
[Am7]Feeling so safe and s[Dm]ound
[Bb]Something else knocks me d[A]own
[D]Oh t[A]hat's the way it [G]is
You gotta r[D]oll with the p[A]unches[D]
[A]That's the way it g[G]oes
You gotta b[D]end when the w[A]ind blows
[Bb]You l[F]ive you learn, you c[Gm7]rash and burn
[Gm]It's hit or miss
And t[C]hat's the way it [F]is[A]
[G]One fine d[D]ay you wake up
[A]completely hopelessly fallin in love
[G]He's just what you're l[D]ooking for the only
[A]problem is that the man's not sure
[G]Another guy'll give you ev[D]erything, only
[A]problem is you don't feel a thing
[G]Well I know from exp[D]erience nothing's
[A]ever gonna make perfect sense
[Dm]Oh, [Bb]one day you get what you w[C]ant
[Am7]But it's not what you t[Dm]hink
[Bb]Then you get what you n[A]eed
[A]Yeah, they say your s[Bb]oul is growing
But [A]sometimes I feel like t[Bb]hrowing s[A]omething
CHORUS (repeats several times)
