All of the chords in "Till I Get There" are just C# chords with different bass notes.
It's easier to play these chords on the piano, but can be played on the guitar through
power chords.
If you play it on the piano, though, your right hand would be holding down the same bass
note as the chord, but down an octave. So for the C#/C chord, for example, you would have
the chord with your right hand and with your left hand you would be holding down a C for 
the entire bar.

[Verse 1]
C#
Album on hold, whole world on hold
C#/C
The crowd is like, ho, operator's like "hold"
C#/B
Man, now ain't that cold
C#/Bb
I'm just trying to talk to my homie, that's up in the hole
C#
Now homegirl not trying to be a ho, even though she on a pole
C#/C
Can she get a second chance, no
C#/B
Whoa, like the opposite of go
C#/Bb
That ain't how it's supposed to be: a butterfly
C#
For the sake of rhyming let’s just say "butterflyee"
C#/C
The truth stings like Muhammad Ali
C#/B
I tell 'em tell 'em don't homocide me
C#/Bb
I just a little old hope with his back against the ropes
C#
Fighting for his fans and, fighting for his folks
C#/C
But the boo's from the crowd can become so loud
C#/B
If I could block em out then, I could knock em out and
C#/Bb
Dance around the ring, but until then I'll sing

[Chorus]
C#
I'mma keep it cool, and I'mma do me
C#/C
It is what it is and that's how it's gon' be
C#/B
Until I get there
C#/Bb
Until I get there
C#
And yeah I got flaws, I know I’m not perfect
C#/C
But all ups and downs, will soon be worth it
C#/B
When I get there
C#/Bb
When I get there

All the other verses and choruses are the same pattern like that. Here are the rest of
the lyrics.

[Verse 2]

"Doctor doctor please! The fame ain't painless enough"
That's cause you ain't famous enough
You got a little game, but your name ain't ringing enough
He said "take 2 of these and put change in my cup"
I said I wasn't poor, he gave me some more
Prescribed a publicist and pointed me to the door
"Out!" Ouch.. I’m telling you this all from a therapist's couch
Tell me about your mother, what she's all about
Prescribed me an interview and then told me to bounce
Damn..geez. The world is so cold, I'm glad I bought these skis
Went right off of the bunny slope and right into the trees
Rendered unconscious, they rushed me to a concert
Instead of green jello and maybe chicken soup
They fed me magazine covers and video shoots

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]

And when I finally make it, I'mma stunt so hard
Evel as Knievel, I'mma jump so far
Way up in the atmosphere, I ain't coming back
Be a jerk to these jerks, yeah that'll make em hurt
Huh? Said the young boy in the mirror
A young version of me, so I started to tear up
He said, you need to cheer up, your mind need to clear up
You're already here, just be yourself from here up"
Then he disappeared and I felt something familiar
Something I was taught, something I had lost
If you are afraid, the fear that you gon' change some
All you gotta do is just remember where you came from.
