[Verse]

Am7              Em7  
Standing in line marking time
D               Cadd9          G
Waiting for the welfare dime
D                       Cadd9
'Cause they can't buy a job
Am7                      Em7  
The man in the silk suit hurries by
D                      Cadd9          G
As he catches the poor ladies' eyes
D                           Cadd9
Just for fun he says "get a job"


[Chorus]

G       Fmaj7   C                       Cadd9
////    ////    ///     That's just the way it is,
G       Fmaj7   C                       Cadd9
////    ////    ///     Somethings will never change,
G       Fmaj7   C                       Cadd9
////    ////    ///     That's just the way it is,
G       Fmaj7   C               Cadd9           
////    ////    ///     Ah, but don't you believe them.
Am7 / Em7 / D / Cadd9 / G / Am7 / Em7 / D / Cadd9 / G / D / Cadd9 /


[Verse]

         Am7            Em7          D                Cadd9       G 
They say hey little boy you can't go where the others go
                 D              Cadd9
'Cause you don't look like they do
     Am7         Em7                  D          Cadd9 
Said hey old man how can you stand to think that way
        G            D                   Cadd9
Did you really think about it before you made the rules, he said, son

[Chorus]

G       Fmaj7   C                       Cadd9
////    ////    ///     That's just the way it is,
G       Fmaj7   C                       Cadd9
////    ////    ///     Somethings will never change,
G       Fmaj7   C                       Cadd9
////    ////    ///     That's just the way it is,
G       Fmaj7   C               Cadd9           
////    ////    ///     Ah, but don't you believe them.

G       Fmaj7   C                       Cadd9

[Verse]

          Am7              Em7                  D                  Cadd9       G 
Well they passed a law in '64 To give those who ain't got a little more
       D            Cadd9                   
But it only goes so far 
            Am7              Em7  
because the law don't change another's mind
     D                  Cadd9     G        D           Cadd9
When all it sees at the hiring time is the line on the color bar


[Bridge]

G       Fmaj7   C                       Cadd9
////    ////    ///     That's just the way it is,
G       Fmaj7   C                       Cadd9
////    ////    ///     Some things will never change,
G       Fmaj7   C                       Cadd9
////    ////    ///     That's just the way it is,
G       Fmaj7   C                       Cadd9
////    ////    ///     Thats just the way it is, it is, it is, it is,

Good tab, but it seems like you're missing a chord in the intro.
