Hi All, this is a great song and credit to the person that put it up. 
I've made a few additions/changes to capture Christy's beat on this. 
It's just a half or quarter bar on the second cord on each line but if you listen 
to the song you'll pick it up.

     C                  F        G
     Who goes where and who goes when
              F                            C    G
     Thinking some day soon they'll get it back again

     Under tin roof and a plastic wall
              F                            C        G
     Thinking some day soon we re going to leave it all

(chorus)     C                      G         F
