Willie Nelson – The Git Go lyrics
It’s been that way since the git go,
It’s been that way since the git go
Well it’s been that way since the git go,
Lord it’s always been that way

Woman shined the apple, and the man had to take a bite
Anything that good, God knows, just had to be right
Well they woke up naked with a big headache,
He done done in by a slippery snake,
A man and a woman get to live a while and then they die

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

Politicians make promises that they can’t keep
They keep printin’ money ‘till they get in way too deep
It’s the same old lesson, they never learn,
Too busy workin’ on their next term
Politicians keep makin’ fools out of you and me

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

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 ev’ry time, roll a soldier’s bones like loaded dice
War is the beast that makes ev’ry mother cry

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

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 forgettin’ ev’ry thing that He said
Jesus Christ hung on the cross for you and I

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

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
