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
