************* IT IS WHAT IT IS *************

written by Stephen Burton and John Fleming

performed by Waylon Jennings
             Kris Kristofferson
	     Willie Nelson
	     Johnny Cash


Verse 1:
	  E
	I've been obnoxious

	I've been unconscious

	I've been all kinds of things that are hard to spell
                    A
	I've been unruly

	Speakin' truly

	I've been so cool i couldn't hardly even stand myself


Verse 2:
                       E
	I've been a monster

	Without a sponsor

	I've been Dr. Jekill and Mr. Hyde
                     A
	I've been a goner

	I've been a loner

	And when my mixture was right

	Hell,i'm a nice bunch of guys


Chorus:
          B                                    A     E
	I am what i am 'cause i ain't what i used to be
          B                                           A      E
	'Cause it is what it is but it ain't what it used to be


Verse 3:
                   E
	I been a mover

	I was a shaker

	You had a girlfriend

	I tried to snake her
                       A
	I've been mysterious

	I've been delirious

	I've been so weird it would have killed a normal man


Verse 4:
                   E
	I wanted money

	I wanted power

	I want a monument

	Kind of like the Eiffel Tower
                    A
	I've been lost at sea

	I've been lost in space

	And when i fall in love

	I fall all over the place


Chorus.


Verse 5:
          A
	And you can go on forever and make the same mystakes
            B
	Or you can stand up on your hind legs and change your fate
           A
	Go on and do until you finally see
           B
	What it is that you was that you don't want to be


Verse 6:
                    E
	I was an outlaw

	I was an in-law

	I was a scapegoat

	That was the last straw
                     A
	I hit the highway

	Singin' my way

	But it wound up sounding like you'll never walk alone


Verse 7:
                  E
	I got a story

	Reflected glory

	Is the way that i've been seein' for most of my life
                         A
	I heard the laughter

	Up in the rafter

	But i never ever thought that the joke was on me


Chorus(x2).
