The Way it Goes 
Gillian Welch
The Harrow and the Harvest - 2011


Capo 1


Am
Becky Johnson bought the farm
Am
Put a needle in her arm
           E7
That's the way that it goes 
           Am
That's the way


Am
And her brother laid her down
Am
In the cold Kentucky ground
           E7
That's the way that it goes
           Am
That's the way



           F           Am
That's the way that it goes
     F                         F         G
Everybody's buying little baby clothes
           F           Am
That's the way that it ends
             F              E7               Am
Though there was a time when she and I were friends



Am
Well, Miranda ran away
Am
Took her cat and left LA
           E7
That's the way that it goes 
           Am
That's the way


Am
She was busted, broke and flat
Am
Had to sell that pussy cat
           E7
That's the way that it goes 
           Am
That's the way



           F           Am
That's the way that it goes
     F                         F         G
Everybody's buying little baby clothes
           F           Am
That's the way that it ends
             F              E7               Am
Though there was a time when he and I were friends



Am
See the brightest ones of all
Am
Early in October fall
           E7
That's the way that it goes 
           Am
That's the way


Am
While the dark ones go to bed
Am
With good whiskey in their head
           E7
That's the way that it goes 
           Am
That's the way


Am
Now Billy Joe's back in the tank
Am
You tell Russo, I'll tell Frank
           E7
That's the way that it goes 
           Am
That's the way


Am
Did he throw her down a well?
Am
Did she leave him for that swell?
           E7
That's the way that it goes 
           Am
That's the way


           F           Am
That's the way that it goes
     F                         F         G
Everybody's buying little baby clothes
           F           Am
That's the way that it ends
             F              E7               Am
Though there was a time when all of us were friends


Am
When you lay me down to rest
Am
Leave a pistol in my vest
           E7
That's the way that it goes 
           Am
That's the way

Am
Do you miss my gentle touch?
Am
Did I hurt you very much?
           E7
That's the way that it goes 
           Am
That's the way


           F           Am
That's the way that it goes
     F                         F         G
Everybody's buying little baby clothes
           F           Am
That's the way that it ends
             F              E7               Am
Though there was a time when you and I were friends
