Billy Joe Shaver - The Git Go Lyrics

(Chorus)
It's been that way since the git go
It's been that way since the git go
It's been that way since the git go
Lord, it's always been that way

(Verse)
Woman tried the apple, and the man had to take a bite
And a thing that good, God knows just had to be right
Well they woke up naked with a bit headache,
He been done in by a slippery snake
A man and a woman get to live a while and then they die

(Chorus)
It's been that way since the git go
It's been that way since the git go
It's been that way since the git go
Lord, it's always been that way

(Verse 2)
Politicians made promises that they can't keep
They keep printing money till they get in way too deep
It's the same old lesson, they never learn,
They're too busy working on their next term
Politicians keep making fools out of you and me

(Chorus)
It's been that way since the git go
It's been that way since the git go
It's been that way since the git go
Lord, it's always been that way

(Verse 3)
Money breeds war, as long as there's a man alive
Rich kids go to college, and the poor kids fight
High rollers crap out every time, roll a soldier's bones like loaded dice
War is the beast that makes every mother cry

(Chorus)
It's been that way since the git go
It's been that way since the git go
It's been that way since the git go
Lord, it's always been that way

(Verse 4)
He told the truth, and they hung him up to die
The son of God who created you and I
He said it in the Good Book and letters in red
But we keep on forgetting every thing He said
Jesus Christ hung on the cross for you and I

(Chorus x2)
It's been that way since the git go
It's been that way since the git go
It's been that way since the git go
Lord, it's always been that way
