There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
(intro)  G D C and things like that at one point you just kinda compromise with that

C                G             D               C      
Standing in line marking time, waiting for the welfare dime
 C                G
'Cause they can't find a job
C                        G
The man in the silk suit hurries by                             
D                          C                                  G
As he catches the poor old ladies' eyes just for fun he says, "Get a job"

That's just the way it is
Some things will never change
That's just the way it is
C                      G
But don't you believe them

(verse 2)
C                       G             D               C
They say hey little boy you can't go where the others go
 G                              C
'Cause you don't look like they do
C                G                    D          C
Said hey old man how can you stand to think that way
C                    G                            C               G
Did you really think about it before you made the rules, he said, son

 (piano solo)

(verse 3)
C                         G                  D              C 
Well they passed a law in '64 To give those who ain't got a little more
C                   G                   
But it only goes so far 
            C                G     
because the law don't change another's mind
     D                  C                              G
When all it sees at the hiring time is the line on the color bar

(final chorus) Same chords
That's just the way it is
Some things will never change
That's just the way it is
Thats just the way it is, it is, it is, it is

I have to try this. This is the version I see in acoustic covers. The original uses Am7 and Em7 instead of C and G. But for the haters Am7 is ACEG and C is CEG; Em7 is EGBD and G is GBD. It's only a difference of 1 note. Still in the original key of G.

Oh yeah and it uses a Csus2 instead of C, but that's no big deal either. Bottom line, good job.

Lack of accuracy. Its Am, Em, D, Cadd9, G, D, Cadd9 but good try and the word are spot on, I'm going to save it just for the words.
