Funny The Way It Is – Dave Matthews Band

Am
Lyin’ in the park  
G
On a beautiful day
Em                         F
Sun shine in the grass and the children play 
Am
Siren’s passin’ 
G
Fire engine's red
Em                         F
Someone’s house is burning down on a day like this 
Am
The evening comes 
G
And we’re hangin’ out 
Em
On the front step 
F 
And a car goes by with the windows rolled down 
Am                            G
And that war song is playin “why can’t we be friends?” 
Em                          F              
Someone's screamin’ and cryin’ in the apartment upstairs 
C
Funny the way it is 
G
And if you think about it 
Bm
Somebody’s goin’ hungry 
F
And someone else is eatin’ out 
C
Funny the way it is 
G
Whether right or wrong 
Bm
Somebody’s heart is broken 
F     
And it becomes your favorite song

Am                               G
The way your mouth feels in your lover’s kiss 
Em
Like a pretty bird on a breeze 
F
Or water to a fish 
Am                             G
But a bomb blast brings the building crashin’ to the floor 
Em                 F
Hear the laughter while the children play war 
Chorus:
C
Funny the way it is 
G
And if you think about it 
Bm
One kid walks 10
