This is the version as I heard it. It may not be perfect, I know there's a chord 
when they say "stars" in the bridge, but I can't figure it out. Perhaps A or A7 I 
am not sure b/c of the harmony. Play with and see what you think.

Intro/Verse:  Am - G - G - F


Am
Lyin’ in the park  
G
On a beautiful day
G                                   F
Sun shine in the grass and the children play 
Am
Siren’s passin’ 
G
Fire engine's red
G                                      F
Someone’s house is burning down on a day like this 

       Am
The evening comes 
             G
And we’re hangin’ out 
G
On the front step 
                               F 
And a car goes by with the windows rolled down 
          Am                             G
And that war song is playin “why can’t we be friends?” 
      G                                  F              
Someone's screamin’ and cryin’ in the apartment upstairs 


Chorus:   C-G-Bm-F


C
Funny the way it is 
         G
And if you think about it 
      Bm
Somebody’s goin’ hungry 
             F
And someone else is eatin’ out 
C
Funny the way it is 
           G
Whether right or wrong 
      Bm
Somebody’s heart is broken 
            F     
And it becomes your favorite song

Verse:

Am                                   G
The way your mouth feels in your lover’s kiss 
 G
Like a pretty bird on a breeze 
         F
Or water to a fish 
       Am                               G
But a bomb blast brings the building crashin’ to the floor 
G                              F
Hear the laughter while the children play war 

Chorus:

C
Funny the way it is 
         G
And if you think about it 
          Bm
One kid walks 10 miles to school 
          F
While another’s droppin’ out 
C
Funny the way it is 
            G
No matter right or wrong 
       Bm
On a soldier’s last breath 
     F
His baby’s being born

Standin’ on a bridge 
Watch the water passin’ under me 
It must have been much harder 
When there was no bridge just water 
Now the world is small 
Remember how it used to be
With mountains, and oceans, and winters, and rivers and stars 

Fill: Am G G F x2

Verse:

Am             
Watch the sky the jet-planes 
    G
So far out of my reach 
G                                   F
Is there someone up there lookin’ down on me? 
Am
Boy chase a bird
     G
So close but every time 
G
He never catch her 
         F
But he can’t stop trying 

Chorus:

C
Funny the way it is 
             G
And if you think about it 
         Bm
One kid walks 10 miles to school 
         F
While another’s droppin’ out 
C
Funny the way it is 
            G
No matter right or wrong 
        Bm
On a soldier’s last breath 
      F
His baby’s being born 

C
Funny the way it is

Somebody’s broken heart
