                       THE WAY IT WILL BE
                     *** CAPO 3rd FRET ***

INTRO:   Em    Am   Em
  Em                          Am                           Em
       I lost you a while ago,      But still I don't know why
  Em                          Am                         Em
       I can't say your name,      Without a crow flying by
   C                        Bm                              E
       Got to watch my back,    Now that you've turned me a-round
   Am                                            Em
       Got me walking backwards,     In my home-town

         G         C                G      C
       Throw me a rope,   On the rolling tide
    Am              C/B        C    Am             C/B    C
       What did you want me to be,    He said it's him or me
           Am               C                          G    D  C
       The way you made it,     That's the way it will be

               Em                             Am                        Em
       It was seven years on the burnin' shore,  With gatling guns and paint
         Em                               Am                      Em
       Working the lowlands door-to-door,      Like a latter day saint
  C                     Bm                            E
       Then you turn me out,      At the top of the stairs
   Am                                                      Em
       You took all the glory,     That you just couldn't share

        Em                          Am                      Em
       I've never been so disabused,     I've never been so mad
        Em                              Am                  Em
       I've never been served anything,      That tasted so bad
  C                       Bm                       E
       You might need a friend,  Any day now  any day
  Am                                                  Em
       Oh my brother  be careful,   You are driftin' away

         G         C               G      C
       Throw me a rope,   On the rolling tide
    Am              C/B        C     Am             C/B    C
       What did you want me to be,     He said it's him or me
            Am             C                             G     D  C
       The way you made it,       That's the way it will be
            Am             C                             G     Em
       The way you made it,       That's the way it will be

I would say the Em should be an Esus4 and the C in the verse should be a C/B. Otherwise, sounds good.

Am pretty sure it's am Em, but you should lift off your fingers in rhythm

with the song, on the off beat between the 4 and the 1
