Capo 5

G                                      C/G
I was born to ignorance yes and lesser poverties
              G                D 
I was born to privelige that I did not see
                Em                         Am   C   
Lack of pigment in my skin, won a free and easy in
       G              D       C/G   G
Didn't know it but my way was paved

I grew up a catholic boy in a northeastern state
A place when asked, "Where you from?"
Some people tend to hesitate, reply a little bit late
As if maybe you didn't rate
I was born to ignorance and privilege

My dad ran a printing press in a tag and label factory
May have seen it as a child, now a distant memory
Almost too faint to see, dark red brick factory
Didn't know it but my way was paved

We moved from a city street shortly after I arrived
To a house on a gravel road where I learned to be alive
Crawl, walk, run and ride, that's where I learned to come alive
Didn't know it but my way was paved

      C/G            D/A    G 
If the wind is at your back
C/G            D/A    G
And you never turn around
C/G            D/A    G     F# Em  
You may never know the wind is there
Am7                     D/A
You may never hear the sound

Got to grow and go to school, work at home and dream at night
Even be a college fool, like I had any right
Never went through a war, never Great Depression poor
Didn't know it but my way was paved

        Am                      D/A 
Nose to the grindstone, shoulder to the wheel
Am                     D/A
Back against the wall, maybe you know how it feels


[solo over verse chords G  C/G  G  D  Em  Am  C  G  D  C/G  G]

If the wind is at your back
And you never turn around
You may never know the wind is there
You may never hear the sound

I was born to ignorance yes and lesser poverties
I was born to privelige that I did not see
Lack of pigment in my skin won a free and easy in
Didn't know it but my way was paved

       Am            D/A             C/G   G 
'cause I was born to ignorance and privilege
