once you have the rhythm you have the song it may be easier to change the
key while playing the ukulele

(Continue Chords)

I dream of life without a monarchy
The unrest in France will lead to onarchy
Onarchy how you say how you say anarchy
When I fight I make the other side panicky
With my shot

Yo I’m a tailor’s apprentice
And I got y’all knuckleheads in loco parentis
I’m joining the rebellion 'cause I know it’s my chance
To socially advance instead of sewin’ some pants
I’m gonna take a shot

But we’ll never be truly free
Until those in bondage have the same rights as you and me
You and I Do or die Wait till I sally in
On a stallion with the first black battalion
Have another shot

Geniuses lower your voices
You keep out of trouble and you double your choices
I’m with you but the situation is fraught
You’ve got to be carefully taught
If you talk you’re gonna get shot

Burr check what we got
Mister Lafayette hard rock like Lancelot
I think your pants look hot
Laurens I like you a lot
Let’s hatch a plot blacker than the kettle callin’ the pot
What are the odds the gods would put us all in one spot
Poppin’ a squat on conventional wisdom like it or not
A chordA bunch of revolutionary manumission abolitionists
Give me a position show me where the ammunition is

Oh am I talkin’ too loud
Sometimes I get over excited shoot off at the mouth
I never had a group of friends before
I promise that I’ll make y’all proud

Let’s get this guy in front of a crowd

I am not throwing away my shot
I am not throwing away my shot
Hey yo I’m just like my country
I’m young scrappy and hungry
And I’m not throwing away my shot

I am not throwing away my shot
I am not throwing away my shot
Hey yo I’m just like my country
I’m young scrappy and hungry
And I’m not throwing away my shot

Everybody sing
Whoa whoa whoa
Hey whoa whoa whoa
Ay let ‘em hear ya

Let’s go

Whoa whoa whoa I said shout it to the rooftops
Whoa whoa whoa said to the rooftops
Whoa whoa whoa come on

Come on let’s go
Rise up
When you’re living on your knees you rise up
Tell your brother that he’s gotta rise up
Tell your sister that she's gotta rise up

When are these colonies gonna rise up
When are these colonies gonna rise up
When are these colonies gonna rise up
When are these colonies gonna rise up

Rise up
I imagine death so much it feels more like a memory
When’s it gonna get me
In my sleep seven feet ahead of me
If I see it comin’ do I run or do I let it be
Is it like a beat without a melody
See I never thought I’d live past twenty
Where I come from some get half as many
Ask anybody why we livin’ fast and we laugh reach for a flask
We have to make this moment last that’s plenty

Scratch that this is not a moment it’s the movement
Where all the hungriest brothers with something to prove went
Foes oppose us we take an honest stand
We roll like Moses claimin’ our promised land
And If we win our independence
‘Zat a guarantee of freedom for our descendants
Or will the blood we shed begin an endless cycle of vengeance and death with no defendants
I know the action in the street is excitin'
But Jesus between all the bleedin’ ‘n fightin’
I’ve been readin’ ‘n writin’
We need to handle our financial situation
Are we a nation of states what’s the state of our nation
I’m past patiently waitin' I’m passionatelymashin’ every expectation
Every action’s an act of creation
I’m laughin' in the face of casualties and sorrow
For the first time I’m thinkin’ past tomorrow

And I am not throwing away my shot
I am not throwing away my shot
Hey yo I’m just like my country
I’m young scrappy and hungry
And I’m not throwing away my shot

We’re gonna rise up time to take a shot
We’re gonna rise up time to take a shot
We’re gonna rise up rise up

It's time to take a shot
Rise up rise up it's time to take a shot
Rise up it's time to take a shot
Rise up take a shot shot shot
It's time to take a shot time to take a shot
And I am not throwing away my shot
Not throwing away my shot
