The Way Things Were

 

 

              A         EE                                         E/D

The way things were                     no inquisition                      no jealousy

The way things were                          no suspicion                  uncertainty

The way things were                     no lonely days                    no sleepless nights

The way things were                     no power plays                  no vicious fights

 

                            A               A/C#                             D                             

What would you do          to get back to           the love you had before?    

 

CHORUS

        E

You shower her with all your charms and affection

         E       E                  

                 That doesn’t matter.   You’re facing in the wrong direction.

 D                                                  D/E 

      You’re not sleeping with her           <break!>

                                                           A

You’re sleeping with the way things were.   Shadoobee bop bop.

       G       D        A

The way things were.      Shadoobee  bop bop.

The way things were.      Shadoobee  bop bop.

The way things were.      Shadoobee  bop bop.

 

              A           E  E                                     E/D

The way things were                     you used to know               now you just wonder

The way things were                     you see the light                 Don’t hear no thunder

The way things were                     you feel the heat                Don’t see the sun

The way things were                     you hear the rumors           From every one

 

         A               A/C#                             D

What would you do          to get back to           the love you had before?    

 

CHORUS

 

 

<last pre-chorus different>

 

                            A              A/C#                  D                             B7/D#

What would you do          to get back to           the love you had before?      Ooo ooo ooo!

 

CHORUS
