Gillian Welch

Gillian Welch - Way It Goes

rate me

Becky Johnson bought the farm

Put a needle in her arm

That's the way that it goes

That's the way

And her brother laid her down

In the cold Kentucky ground

That's the way that it goes

That's the way

That's the way that it goes

Everybody's buying little baby clothes

That's the way that it ends

Though there was a time when she and I were friends

Well, Miranda ran away

Took her cat and left LA

That's the way that it goes

That's the way

She was busted, broke and flat

Had to sell that pussy cat

That's the way that it goes

That's the way

That's the way that it goes

Everybody's buying little baby clothes

That's the way that it ends

Though there was a time when he and I were friends

See the brightest ones of all

Early in October fall

That's the way that it goes

That's the way

While the dark ones go to bed

With good whiskey in their head

That's the way that it goes

That's the way

Now Billy Joe's back in the tank

You tell *Russo*, I'll tell Frank Musso

That's the way that it goes

That's the way

Did he throw her down a well?

Did she leave him for that swell?

That's the way that it goes

That's the way

That's the way that it goes

Everybody's buying little baby clothes

That's the way that it ends

Though there was a time when all of us were friends

When you lay me down to rest

Leave a pistol in my vest

That's the way that it goes

That's the way

Do you miss my gentle touch?

Did I hurt you very much?

That's the way that it goes

That's the way

That's the way that it goes

Everybody's buying little baby clothes

That's the way that it ends

Though there was a time when you and I were friends
