All other tabs are naff this one is my interpretation, please rate it, enjoy, msmuse101!

electric parts. (Ignore my crappy chord names, i dont know what a couple of them are
called! If u know i would apprechiate it if u left a comment so i can correct it, ta!)

[verse1] 
D/F# Gadd9 D/F#        Em7
An old man turned ninety-eight
        D/F#  Gadd9   D/F#           Em7
He won the lottery and died the next day
      D/F#   Gadd9  D/F#       Em7 
It's a black fly in your chardonnay
       D/F#      Gadd9      D/F#        Em7
It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
         D/F# Gadd9          D/F#       Em7
Isn't it ironic... don't you think

[chorus]
         D/F# G    D/F#        Em7
It's like rain on your wedding day
           D/F# G            D/F#    Em7
It's a free ride when you've already paid
              D/F# G          D/F#        Em7
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
    Fm           Cadd9           D/F#
And who would've thought... it figures

[verse2]
    D/F# Gadd9         D/F#     Em7
Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
              D/F# Gadd9              D/F#      Em7
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids good-bye
              D/F#       Gadd9   D/F#      Em7
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
           D/F#         Gadd9                  D/F#        Em7
And as the plane crashed down he thought, well isn't this nice
               D/F# Gadd9           D/F#      Em7
And Isn't this ironic ... don't you think?

It's a free ride when you've already paid

It's the good advice that you just didn't take

And who would've thought... it figures

[bridge]
     Cadd9                               Dadd9  
Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
                       Dadd9*Dadd9 Cadd9               Dadd9
When you think everything's ok and everythings going right
Dadd9*Dadd9   Cadd9                               Dadd9  
And yeah well life has a funny way of helping you out when

You think evertyhing's gone wrong and everthing blows up in your face

  D/F#    Gadd9           D/F#     Em7
A traffic jam when you're already late
      D/F#   Gadd9        D/F#      Em7
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
          D/F#   Gadd9               D/F#      Em7
It's like 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife
     D/F#                  Gadd9                   D/F#     Em7
It's meeting the man of my dreams then meeting his beautiful wife
             D/F# Gadd9          D/F#     Em7
And isn't it ironic... don't you think
             D/F# Gadd9           D/F#     Em7
A little too ironic.. and yeah I really do think...

[chorus]
         D/F# G    D/F#        Em7
It's like rain on your wedding day
           D/F# G            D/F#    Em7
It's a free ride when you've already paid
              D/F# G          D/F#        Em7
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
