Funny The Way It Is

Dave Matthews Band

Big Whiskey & the GrooGrux King

 

 

Lying in the park On a beautiful day

Sunshine in the grass And the children play

Sirens passin

Fire engine red

Someones house is burnin down

On a day like this

The evening comes

And we hang out

On the front steps

And a car rolls by with the windows down

And that old song was playin

Why cant we be Friends

Someone is screamin and cryin

In the apartment upstairs

(CHORUS) Funny the way it is

If you think about it

Somebodys going hungry

And someone else is eating out

Funny the way it is

Not right or wrong

Somebodys heart is broken

When they play your favorite song

The way your mouth feels

Your lovers kiss Like a pretty bird on the breeze

Or water to a fish

A bomb blast brings the building

Crashing to the floor

Hear the laughter

While the children play war

Funny the way it is

If you think about it

One kid walks ten miles to school

Anothers droppin out

Funny the way it is

Not right or wrong

On a soldiers last breath

His babys being born

Standing on a bridge

Watch the water passin under me

Musta been much harder when

There was no bridge just water

Now the world is small

Where the highway used to be

Were mountains and oceans

And winters and rivers

And stars

Watch the sky the jetplanes

Over out of my reach

Is there someone up there

Lookin down on me

A boy chases a bird

So close but every time

Never catch her but

He cant stop trying

 

Funny the way it is

If you think about it

One kid walks ten miles to school

Anothers droppin out

Funny the way it is

Not right or wrong

On a soldiers last breath

His babys being born

Funny the way it is

Not right or wrong

Somebodys heart is broken

When they play your favorite song

Funny the way it is

If you think about it

One kid walks ten miles to school

Anothers droppin out

Standing on a bridge

Watch the water passin under me

Musta been much harder when

There was no bridge just water

Now the world is small

Where the highway used to be

Were mountains and oceans

And winters and rivers And stars

Hey Sean,

Leroi is definitely missed.

I had the opportunity to meet him, as well as the rest of the band, numerous times and I saw one of the first shows after Leroi's death. it was definitely heartfelt.

Craig,

Awesome... just awesome.

I would enjoy meeting Dave.  The DMB plays some amazing music and Leroi was a special part of that, indeed.

Thanks for putting the link for the download above.

Hey Sean, I'm not sure if I ever mentioned it, but my brother is the caterer for the DMB and quite an accomplished guitar player.........and he's played on stage with them lots. He's on the Live in Chicago CD too. See it here:

Anyway, I got to hang with those guys for the better part of a bunch of years. Carter, Dave and Boyd are awesome folks.

Oh, and if you dig the above video, check this one out.....
