[Hook]

Am    
A bird with the word came to me
    D
The sweetness of a honeycomb tree
    C
And now I look what's taking over me
         C
Couldn't fake it if I wanted to
         F7
I had to wake up just to make it through
         F7
I got my patience and I'm making do
             D7
I learned my lessons from the ancient roots
             D7
I choose to follow what the greatest do
  Am
A bird with the word came to me
    D
The sweetness of a honeycomb tree
    C
And now I look what's taking over me
         C
Couldn't fake it if I wanted to
         F7
I had to wake up just to make it through
         F7
I got my patience and I'm making do
             D7
I learned my lessons from the ancient roots
            D7
I choose to follow what the greatest do

[Verse 1]
                    C
I'm repping for the longest cycle, mmm
                 C
My uncles had to pay the cost, mmm
                  C/A
My sister used to sing to Whitney, mmm
                   C/A
My mama caught the gambling bug, mmm
                F7
We came up in a lonely castle, mmm
            F7
My papa was behind them bars, mmm
                D7
We never had to want for nothing, mmm
                 D7
Said all we ever need is love, mmm
           Am
We see the same things
            D
We sing the same songs
            C
We feel the same grief
          C
Bleed the same blood
                   F
You grew up in the home beside me
               F7
I always had a friend to call
                    Dm7
How could I make it here without you? Mmm
               Dm7
I pray I leave before you're gone

[Hook]
Am

[Outro]
                        C
Hey, my little youth is crying
           C
I'm almost home, almost home
                C/A
Look no further riots, mmm
           C/A
Working my fingers to the bone
             F7
See I do the best I can, mmm
           F7
Mama was a farmer, mmm
           D7
Papa was a goner, mmm

Hmm had to bring it up +1 to match up with the track. Gets funky near the end. Thanks for the help though!!! I couldn't even get started...so many black keys. So awesome. Props to .Paak and the Free Nationals.
