No One Said It Would Be Easy  Sheryl Crow

[A] It's obvi[G]ous the [F#m]trouble we're [D]in
When your father pulls up in a Mercedes Benz
He says he just happened to be in the neighbourhood
But before he leaves he slips the landlord the rent
You say, "It's just a question of eliminating obstacles"
As you throw your dinner out the kitchen door
You say, "I know how you try
A G F#m G* F#m
But, honey, let's eat out tonight"
[D] No one said it[/E] would[/F#] be [A]easy[G] [F#m]
But no one said it'd be this hard
No one said it would be easy
No one thought we'd come this far
You can't seem to ever fold up a shirt
I bring it up and you think I'm a jerk
But I think we're here to stay
I can't imagine it any other way
No one said it would be easy
But no one said it'd be this hard
No one said it would be easy
No one thought we'd come this far
F#m G A* Bm
Sometimes I wonder who he's picturing
[Em]   When he looks at me
[G]   When he looks at me and smiles[F#m]
  [A]        [G]   [F#m]     [D]  [A]        [G]   [F#m]     [G]  No one said it would be easy
No one said it'd be this hard
No one said it would be easy
No one thought we'd come this far
Oh, and look, we've come this far

Don't be scared off by the funny tuning - this song is dead easy to play -
beauty in simplicity.
There are three guitars on the recording - one electric and two acoustics.
