Well here are the words

THAT'S THE WAY IT'S GONNA BE
(Bob Gibson/Phil Ochs)
  Em             F#                     Em
So you say that all our good times are gone,
F# Em
And so you say this rain will keep rainin' on,
A D G B7 Em
I'll walk along with my head held high
A D G B7 Em
Finding that song you know I'll sing it to the sky
A D G B7 Em
I may be wrong but I'll live till I die
C Am B7
That's the way it's gonna be, wait and see.
Even though you say the devil knocks at my door
And you say my ship will not reach the shore
I've got a will and a thousand ways,
I've got a dream of a thousand better days
I've got a smile that just stays and stays,
That's the way it's gonna be, wait and see.

Even though you say I've reached the end of the road
And you say the tides are all runnin' low
Victory is waiting for me round the bend
I won't stay down for the count of ten
I've said it before, and I'll say it again,
That's the way it's gonna be, wait and see.

Repeat 1

happiest forsooth
