[Chorus]
      Em                     Am
It's been that way since the git go
     B7                       Em
It's been that way since the git go
     Em                      Am
It's been that way since the git go
          B7               Em
Lord it's always been that way

[Verse 1]
      Em                         B7               Em
Woman shined the apple, and the man had to take a bite
      Em                                       B7
Anything that good, God knows, just had to be right
          Em        
Well they woke up naked with a big headache
 Am
He been done in by a slippery snake
  Em                     B7                          Em
a man and a woman get to live a while and then they die

[Chorus]
      Em                     Am
It's been that way since the git go
     B7                       Em
It's been that way since the git go
     Em                      Am
It's been that way since the git go
          B7               Em
Lord it's always been that way

[Verse 2]
      Em                         B7        Em
Politicians make promises that they can't keep
      Em                                            B7
They keep printin' money ‘till they get in way too deep
          Em 
It's the same old lesson, they never learn,
 Am
They're too busy workin' on their next term
  Em                     B7                 Em
Politicians keep makin' fools out of you and me

[Chorus]
      Em                     Am
It's been that way since the git go
     B7                       Em
It's been that way since the git go
     Em                      Am
It's been that way since the git go
          B7               Em
Lord it's always been that way

[Verse 3]
      Em               B7                   Em
Money breeds war, as long as there's a man alive
      Em                                    B7
Rich kids go to college, and the poor kids fight
          Em 
High-rollers crap out ev'ry time,
 Am
roll a soldier's bones like loaded dice
   Em                 B7                 Em
War is the beast that makes ev'ry mother cry

[Chorus]
      Em                     Am
It's been that way since the git go
     B7                       Em
It's been that way since the git go
     Em                      Am
It's been that way since the git go
          B7               Em
Lord it's always been that way

[Verse 4]
      Em                     B7            Em
He told the truth, and they hung him up to die
      Em                          B7
The son of God who created you and I
          Em 
He said it in the Good Book and letters in red
 Am
But we keep on forgettin' ev'ry thing He said
   Em                     B7              Em
Jesus Christ hung on the cross for you and I

[Chorus]
      Em                     Am
It's been that way since the git go
     B7                       Em
It's been that way since the git go
     Em                      Am
It's been that way since the git go
          B7               Em
Lord it's always been that way

[Chorus]
      Em                     Am
It's been that way since the git go
     B7                       Em
It's been that way since the git go
     Em                      Am

Lord it's always been that way
