That's the Way I've Always Heard It Should Be chords for acoustic guitar
Carly Simon 1971 (Carly Simon & Jacob Brackman)

Capo III

G#m
My father sits at night with no lights on
                           C#m
His cigarette glows in the dark.
Bm
The living room is still;
A          A7   A     Dm E
I walk by, no remark.

G#m
I tiptoe past the master bedroom where
                        C#m
My mother reads her magazines.
Bm
I hear her call sweet dreams,
A            A7     A      Dm E
But I forgot how to dream.

D                        C#m
But you say it's time we moved in together
    D                  C#m
And raised a family of our own, you and me 
Bm                               C#m
Well, that's the way I've always heard it should be:
            Fm              B
You want to marry me, we'll marry.

G#m
My friends from college they're all married now;
                                 C#m
They have their houses and their lawns.
Bm
They have their silent noons,
A               A7    A      Dm E
Tearful nights, angry dawns.

G#m
Their children hate them for the things they're not;
                                   C#m
They hate themselves for what they are
Bm        
And yet they drink, they laugh,
A                A7       A     Dm E
Close the wound, hide the scar.

D                        C#m
But you say it's time we moved in together
    D                  C#m
And raised a family of our own, you and me 
Bm                               C#m
Well, that's the way I've always heard it should be:
            Fm              B
You want to marry me, we'll marry.

G#m
You say we can keep our love alive
                           C#m
Babe  all I know is what I see 
Bm
The couples cling and claw
A            A7       A    Dm E
And drown in love's debris.

G#m
You say we'll soar like two birds through the clouds,
                                C#m
But soon you'll cage me on your shelf
Bm
I'll never learn to be just me first
A  A7 A     Dm E
By my self.

D                   C#m
But ok it's time we moved in together
    D                      C#m
And raised a family of our own, you and me 
Bm                               C#m
Well, that's the way I've always heard it should be:
            Fm              B
You want to marry me, we'll marry.
      B
We'll marry.
