Capo 4th fret
 
 
[Verse]
 
    D  G   D              Em
An old man  turned ninety-eight   
            D   G      D            Em
He won the lottery and died the next day
       D     G          D        Em
It´s a black fly in your  Chardonnay
       D         G          D           Em
It´s a death row pardon two minutes too late
          D    G  D               Em
Isn´t it ironic ... don´t you think 
 
 
[Chorus]
 
         D   G         D       Em
It´s like rain on your wedding day
            D  G             D       Em
It´s a free ride when you´ve already paid
              D  G            D           Em
It´s the good advice that you just didn´t take
    F          C                  D
Who would´ve thought ... it figures 
 
 
[Verse]
 
   D        G       D         Em
Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
   D          G            D              Em
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids good-bye
              D          G       D         Em
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
           D             G
And as the plane crashed down he thought
D                  Em
" Well isn´t this nice ... "
              D    G  D               Em
And isn´t it ironic ... don´t you think 
 
 
[Chorus]
 
         D   G         D       Em
It´s like rain on your wedding day
            D  G             D       Em
It´s a free ride when you´ve already paid
              D  G            D           Em
It´s the good advice that you just didn´t take
    F          C                  D
Who would´ve thought ... it figures 
 
 
[Bridge]
 
      Cmaj7                  Gmaj7/D
Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
                            Cmaj7                       Gmaj7/D
When you think everything´s okay and everything´s going right 
     Cmaj7                  Gmaj7/D
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
                                       Cmaj7
You think everything´s gone wrong and everything blows up
         Gmaj7/D
In your face
 
 
[Verse]
 
  D       G              D         Em
A traffic jam when you´re  already late
     D       G            D        Em
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
          D            G                  D         Em
It´s like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
                  D        G
It´s meeting the man of my dreams
                     D         Em
And then meeting his beautiful wife
              D    G  D               Em
And isn´t it ironic ... don´t you think
        D     G                    D        Em
A little too ironic ... and yeah I really do think ...
 
 
[Chorus]
 
         D   G         D       Em
It´s like rain on your wedding day
            D  G             D       Em
It´s a free ride when you´ve already paid
              D  G            D           Em
It´s the good advice that you just didn´t take
    F          C                  D
Who would´ve thought ... it figures
