That’s the way it goes

You pick guitar, you write your songs
You play ‘em hard and the night is long
Turn around and that woman’s gone
That’s the way it goes

Empty doorway the wind is sighing
A kitchen table’s sometimes just for cryin’
No one’s sellin’ and you’re not buying
That’s the way it goes

It’s city heartaches and country blues
You don’t wager, you don’t lose
But either way you still got to choose, that’s the way it goes
Sometimes you laugh, sometimes you grieve
People tellin’ you what to believe
Always something tuggin’ at your sleeve
Always something tuggin’ at your sleeve

Live your life one day at a time
You’ll find the chords; you’ll find the rhymes
It’s not in front, it’s not behind
That’s the way it goes

Do the best that you can
Be true to love and your fellow man
Always try to lend a helping hand
That’s the way it goes.
