Lee Kernaghan  -  The Way It Is

By axehappy  -  axehappy at countrytabs.com


This is played on the recording using Dropped-D tuning, but I've tabbed it to
be played in standard. If anyone wants to play in Dropped-D, just ask, and I'll
tab that version too.

***************************************************************************************



       D                     Dmaj9
It's a plume of dust down an old dirt road,
    G
And hanging off the rails at the rodeo.
D                     Dmaj9
 A back verandah with creaking boards,
G 
 And the dark rage of a thunderstorm.
D                        Dmaj9
The stockman's bar at an old bush pub,
Bm                    G
 And chasing mickey's through the scrub.
D                        Dmaj9
 It's planting seeds and praying for rain,
        G                A
And the red dust running through your veins.



                     G                   D
It's just the way it is, it's the way it goes,
        G                     A                  D  
When my wheels hit the gravel road it feels like home.
                G                     Bm   G
It's the way of life, it's the life I live,
        D                     A
And I'm right where I want to be.
                  D
That's the way it is.



D                 Dmaj9
It's a corrugated iron shed 
    G
And work boots on a backdoor step.
D                         Dmaj9
Scones in the oven and preserves in jars,
G
 Talking prices at the saleyards.
     D                       Dmaj9
It's long straight roads and one horse towns,
    Bm                      G
And sheep dogs bringing the mob around.
D                         Dmaj9
 It's she'll be right and having a go,
          G              A
It's good on ya mate and what do ya know?



                     G                   D
It's just the way it is, it's the way it goes,
        G                     A                  D  
When my wheels hit the gravel road it feels like home.
                G                     Bm   G
It's the way of life, it's the life I live,
        D                     A
And I'm right where I want to be.
                  D
That's the way it is.



D   G   D   G   A
INSTRUMENTAL



D                            A/Db
 It's the eerie still in the grey of dawn,
G/B                  G
 Fields of wheat and rows of corn.
D                A/Db
A rusty tank and flaking paint,
G/B                G
 A weary digger on Anzac Day.
         D                  A/Db
It's the dreamtime land and Uluru,
Bm         G
 Aborigine didgeridoo.
D                      A/Db
It's battered hats and calloused hands,
G                A   
 The spirit of a hard won land.



                     G                   D
It's just the way it is, it's the way it goes,
        G                     A                  D  
When my wheels hit the gravel road it feels like home.
                G                     Bm   G
It's the way of life, it's the life I live,
        D                     A
And I'm right where I want to be.
           Em         Em/F#   A
A patch of ground and you and me.
                  D
That's the way it is.
  G                         D   G
Ohhhh, it's just the way it is.
                  D   G
That's the way it is.
                        D   G  D
Yeah, that's the way it is.
