Why Is It Always This Way?
Rocket To Russia (1977)

  B  C#  F#  F#  x 2  w/ Ooo

  B   C#  F#
  Hey hey hey                 x 2
  B   C#      F#
  Why is it always this way?

Last time I saw her alive
She was wavin', wavin' bye bye
She was contemplating suicide
Now she's lying in a bottle of formaldehyde

        E                           w/ Ooo
    And oh I just don't know
    F#                     B A (E)
    Why I can't let her go
    E                    C#  B  /A /A /A /A B  /A /A /A /A B C#
    Oh I just don't know

  Hey hey hey                 x 2
  Why is it always this way?

Last time I saw her alive
She was going to the wash and dry
She was outside hitchin' a ride
Now she's lying in a bottle of formaldehyde

    Post-refrain

  Hey hey hey                 x 8 (fade out)
  Why is it always this way?
