The Roots f. Cody Chesnutt - The Seed 2.0
Tabbed By: Marcus Ryan
It is important to get the strumming pattern down on the main verse.
This is the electric guitar part, the guitar is at a twangy pitch.
On the second Am you don't have to strum the full chords, just a quick
strum because you will be changing to the Dm.
    Am       Dm
E------------1-1----------------1-1------------------|
B-1---x-1-1--3-3--------1-x-1-1-3-3------------------|
G-0h2-x-2-2--2-2--------2-x-2-2-2-2------------------|
D-0h2-x-2-2-------------2-x-2-2----------------------|

[Verse 1: Black Thought]
Knocked up 9 months ago
And what she finna have she don't know
She want neo-soul, this hip-hop is old
She don't want no rock-n-roll
She want platinum or ice or gold
She want a whole lotta somethin' to fold
If you a obstacle she just drop ya cold
Cuz one monkey don't stop the show
Little Mary is bad
In these streets she done ran
E'er since when the heat began
I told the girl look here
Calm down I'ma hold your hand
To enable you to peep the plan
Cuz you is quick to learn
And we can make money to burn
If you allow me the latest game
I don't ask for much, but enough room to spread my wings
And the world finna know my name

Again for the chorus it is important to get the strumming down.
The first line is the same as the first
[Verse 2: Cody Chesnutt]
   Am Dm x4
I don't ask, for much these days
             Bb                          D7
And I don't bitch, and whine, if I don't get my way
Am  Dm x2        C                G              Dm
I only wanna fertilize another behind my lover's back
C                   G                     Dm
I sit and watch it grow standin' where I'm at
C                    G                Dm
Fertilize another behind my lover's back
D7
And I'm keepin' my secrets mine
        Am           G           Dm
I push my seed in her push for life
     Am                   G           Dm
Its gonna work because I'm pushin' it right
F
If Mary drops my baby girl tonight
D7
I would name her Rock-N-Roll

[Verse 3: Black Thought]
Uh-huh
Cadillac need space to roam
Where we headin for she don't know
We in the city where the pros shake rattle and roll
And I'm a gaddang rollin' stone
I don't beg I can hold my own
I don't break I can hold the chrome
And this weighin' a ton and I'm a son of a gun
My code name is The Only One and Black Thought is bad
These streets he done ran ever since when the game began
I never played the fool
Matta fact I be keepin' it cool
Since money been changing hands
And I'm left to shine, but the legacy that I leave behind be the seed
that'll keep the flame
I don't ask for much but enough room to spread these wings
And the world finna know my name

[Verse 4: Cody Chesnutt]
I don't beg
For no rich man
And I don't scream, and kick, when his shit don't fall in my hands, man
Cuz I know how to still
Fertilize another against my lover's will
I lick the opposition cuz she don't take no pill
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-no dear
You'll be keeping my legend alive
I push my seed in her push for life
Its gonna work because I'm pushin' it right
If Mary drops my baby girl tonight
                      E
I would name her Rock-N-Roll
    E7
Oh-ooh break it down, break it down, break down beat

Bridge
  E  E7    strum once    x4   G  Dm   B  E  E7

[break]
I push my seed somewhere deep in her chest
I push it naked cuz I've takin my test
Deliverin' Mary it don't matter the sex
I'm gon' name it rock and roll
I push my seed in my push for life
It's gonna work becuz I'm pushin it right
If Mary drop my baby girl, tonight
I would name her Rock-N-Roll
I would name her Rock-N-Roll
I would name her Rock-N-Roll yeah
I would name it Rock-N-Roll

These bass notes are played through out the whole song. I don't
know if the song is actually two guitars, or if they just dubbed
over the version with a second guitar in the recording. but either
a bass plays the root notes of these chords, or a guitar
could play this.
