[Verse 1]
                   C
Let me tell you a story
                  F    
About a boy and a girl
                       C
It’s kinda short kinda boring
                   F    
But the  end is a whirl
           Am
They were just 16
         G
When the people were mean
        F    
So they didn’t love themselves
           C
Now they’re gone
                  F
Headstones on a lawn
 
[Verse 2]
           C
When I was younger
                   F    
I knew a boy and a boy
                       C
Best friends with each other
                            F    
But always wished they were more
             Am
‘Cause they loved one another
      G                        F    
But ne-ver discovered ‘cause they were too afraid
              C
Of what they’d say
                    F    
Moved to different states
 
[Chorus]
        Em                                 F
Oh, and I’m afraid that’s just the way the world works
         C                                 G 
It ain’t funny, it ain’t pretty, it ain’t sweet
        Em                                 F
Oh, and I’m afraid that’s just the way the world works
      C                                     G 
But I think that it could work for you and me
             C    F    
Just wait and see
                         C    F    
It’s not the end of the story
 
[Verse 3]
                   C
Now it's on to the sequel
                 F    
About me and my friend
                            C
See, both our parents were e-vil
                  F    
So we both made a bet
       Am
If we worked till we saved
         G
We could both run away
         F    
And we’d have a better life
         C
And I was right
                    F    
I wonder if she’s alright
 
[Chorus]
        Em                                 F
Oh, and I’m afraid that’s just the way the world works
         C                                 G 
It ain’t funny, it ain’t pretty, it ain’t sweet
        Em                                 F
Oh, and I’m afraid that’s just the way the world works
      C                                     G 
But I think that it could work for you and me
             C    F    
Just wait and see
                         C    F    
It’s not the end of the story
 
[Bridge]
C        F                            C
 And the movie’s always running in my head
        F                                 C
All the people, all the lovers, all my friends
      F                                     C
And I hope that they’ll all get their happy end
       F
In the end
 
[Chorus]
        Em                                 F
Oh, and I’m afraid that’s just the way the world works
         C                                 G 
It ain’t funny, it ain’t pretty, it ain’t sweet
        Em                                 F
Oh, and I’m afraid that’s just the way the world works
      C                                     G 
But I think that it could work for you and me
             C    F    
Just wait and see
                         C    F    
It’s not the end of the story
