 Am7Em7
 Standing in line marking time
 DCadd9G
 Waiting for the welfare dime    
 DCadd9
 'Cause they can't buy a job
 Am7Em7
 The man in the silk suit hurries by
 DCadd9G
 As he catches the poor ladies' eyes    
 DCadd9
 Just for fun he says "get a job"

Chorus
 GFmaj7CCadd9
 ////    ////    ///     That's just the way it is,
 GFmaj7CCadd9
 ////    ////    ///     Somethings will never change,
 GFmaj7CCadd9
 ////    ////    ///     That's just the way it is,
 GFmaj7CCadd9
 ////    ////    ///     Ah, but don't you believe them.

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

 ////    ////    ///     That's just the way it is,
 GFmaj7CCadd9
 ////    ////    ///     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

 GFmaj7CCadd9
 ////    ////    ///     That's just the way it is,
 GFmaj7CCadd9
 ////    ////    ///     That's just the way it is,
 GFmaj7CCadd9
 ////    ////    ///     That's just the way it is,
