The Story

≣≣
Tone: [C]
 
[Verse1]
Let me tell you a [C]story
About a boy and a [F]girl
It’s kinda short kinda [C]boring
But the  end is a [F] whirl
They were [Am]just 16
When the [G]people  were mean
So they [F]didn’t love themselves
Now they’re [C]gone
Headstones on a [F]lawn
 
[Verse2]
When I was [C]younger
I knew a boy and a [F]boy
Best friends with each [C]other
But always wished they were [F]more
‘Cause they [Am]loved one another
But ne[G]never discovered ‘cause [F]they were too afraid
Of what they’d [C]say
Moved to different [F]states
 
[Chorus]
Oh, and [Em7]I’m afraid that’s just the way the [F]world works
It ain’t [C]funny, it ain’t pretty, it ain’t [G6]sweet
Oh, and [Em7]I’m afraid that’s just the way the [F]world works
But I [C]think that it could work for you and [G6]me
[N.C]Just wait and [C]see [F]
It’s not the end of the [C]story [F]
 
[Verse3]
Now it's on to the [C]sequel
About me and my [F]friend
See, both our parents were [C]evil
So we both made a [F]bet
If we [Am]worked till we saved
We could [G]both run away
And we’d [F]have a better life
And I was [C]right
I wonder if she’s al[F]alright
 
[Chorus]
Oh, and [Em7]I’m afraid that’s just the way the [F]world works
It ain’t [C]funny, it ain’t pretty, it ain’t [G6]sweet
Oh, and [Em7]I’m afraid that’s just the way the [F]world works
But I [C]think that it could work for you and [G6]me
[N.C.]Just wait and [C]see [F]
It’s not the end of the [C]story [F] [C]
 
[Bridge]
And the [F]movie’s always running in my [C]head
All the [F]people, all the lovers, all my [C]friends
And I [F]hope that they’ll all get their happy [C]end
In the [F]end
 
[Chorus]
Oh, and [Em7]I’m afraid that’s just the way the [F]world works
It ain’t [C]funny, it ain’t pretty, it ain’t [G6]sweet
Oh, and [Em7]I’m afraid that’s just the way the [F]world works
But I [C]think that it could work for you and [G6]me
[N.C.]Just wait and [C]see [F]
It’s not the end of the [C]story [F] [C]
