[Chorus]

Dm                              Gm
It’s been that way since the git go,
Gm                                Dm

Dm                                    Gm
Well, it’s been that way since the git go,

Dm                              A                   Dm
Woman shined the apple, and the man had to take a bite
Dm                                             A
Anything that good, God knows, just had to be right
Dm
Well they woke up naked with a big headache,

He been done in by a slippery snake,
Dm                        A                         Dm
a man and a woman get to live a while and then they die

Politicians make promises that they can’t keep
Dm                                                 A
They keep printin’ money ‘till they get in way too deep
Dm
It’s the same old lesson, they never learn,
Gm
They’re too busy workin’ on their next term
Dm                       A                   Dm

Money breeds war, as long as there’s a man alive
Dm                                           A
Rich kids go to college, and the poor kids fight
Dm                               Gm
High-rollers crap out every time, roll a soldier’s bones like loaded dice
Dm                    A                   Dm
War is the beast that makes every mother cry

He told the truth, and they hung him up to die

The son of God who created you and I
Dm
He said it in the Good Book with letters in red
Gm
But we keep on forgettin’ every thing He said
Dm                       A                 Dm
Jesus Christ hung on the cross for you and I


[Chorus]

Dm                              Gm
It’s been that way since the git go,
Gm                                Dm
It’s been that way since the git go
Dm                                    Gm

About the artist behind The Git Go:

Willie Nelson (born April 30, 1933) is an American singer-songwriter and actor. He is widely regarded as one of the most beloved and notorious country music singers. He reached his greatest fame during the so-called "outlaw country" movement of the 1970s, but remains iconic, especially in American popular culture. In recent years he has continued to tour, record, and perform, and this, combined with activities in advocacy of cannabis, as well as a well-publicized 2006 arrest for cannabis possession, have made him the subject of renewed media attention.
