{title:That's the Way that the World Goes 'Round}
{st:John Prine}
D[C]id you ever stand and sh[F]iver
[C]While you were st[G]aring [G7]at A r[C]iver[F]?    [C]     [G]     [C]

W[C]ell I know a guy that's got a lot to lose,
He's a p[F]retty nice fella, kinda confused.
He's got m[C]uscles in his head ain't never been used,
He thinks he owns half of this t[G]own.[G7]

Well he st[C]arts drinkin' heavy, gets a big red nose,
Then he f[F]ights with his lady, until it shows.
He t[C]akes her out to dinner, and buys her new clothes,
And that's the w[G]ay that the world goes 'r[C]ound.

     Th[C]at's the way that the world goes 'round,
     You're [F]up one day, the next you're down,
     It's h[C]alf inch of water, but you think you're gonna drown,
     That's the way that the w[G7]orld goes 'r[C]ound.

I was sittin' in the bathtub, a-countin' my toes,
When the radiator broke, the water all froze.
I got stuck in the ice, without my clothes,
Naked as the eyes of a clown.

I was crying those ice cubes, hoping I'd croak,
When the sun came through the window, the ice all broke.
I stood up and laughed; I thought it was a joke,
That's the way that the world goes 'round.



Did you ever stand and shiver
While you were staring at a river?

That's the way that the world goes 'round.  (repeat...)


That's the way that the world goes 'round,
That's the way that the world goes 'round.
