[INTRO] Am Em D C G D C x2 
[INSTRUMENTAL] Am Em D C G D C x2 
[VERSE]
Am                Em
Standing in line, marking time
D                 C       G
Waiting for the welfare dime
D                  C
'Cause they can't buy a job
Am                  Em
The man in the silk suit hurries by
       D             C              G
As he catches the poor old lady's eyes
        D              C
Just for fun he says, "Get a job."

[CHORUS]
                        G F C
That's just the way it is

[VERSE]
    Am                    Em                   D      C
Said hey, little boy, you can't go where the others go
G                 D          C
'Cause you don't look like they do
     Am             Em                   D         C
Said hey, old man, how can you stand to think that way?
             G               D               C
And did you really think about it before you made the rules?
          G F C 
He said, son

[CHORUS]
                        G F C
That's just the way it is

Some things will never change
                       G F C

[BRIDGE]
              Am           Em
Well, they passed a law in '64
       D                       C       G
To give those who ain't got a little more
         D           C
But it only goes so far
            Am                  Em
'Cause the law don't change another's mind
      D                   C          G
When all it sees at the hiring time
         D              C
Is the line on the color bar, no

[CHORUS]
                        G F C
That's just the way it is
                          G F C
Some things will never change
                       G F C
That's just the way it is 
                       G F C
That's just the way it is, it is, it is, it is

[INSTRUMENTAL]  Am Em D C  G D C x4
