[Verse 1]

Bbm    
A bird with the word came to me
    Eb7sus2
The sweetness of a honeycomb tree
    Db7sus2
And now I look what's taking over me
         Db7sus2
Couldn't fake it if I wanted to
         Db/Gb
I had to wake up just to make it through
         Db/Gb
I got my patience and I'm making do
             B/E
I learned my lessons from the ancient roots
             B/E
I choose to follow what the greatest do

[Verse 2]

  Bbm
A bird with the word came to me
    Eb7sus2
The sweetness of a honeycomb tree
    Db7sus2
And now I look what's taking over me
         Db7sus2
Couldn't fake it if I wanted to
         Db/Gb
I had to wake up just to make it through
         Db/Gb
I got my patience and I'm making do
             B/E
I learned my lessons from the ancient roots
            B/E
I choose to follow what the greatest do

[Bridge]

                    Bbm
I'm repping for the longest cycle, mmm
                 Eb7sus2
My uncles had to pay the cost, mmm
                  Db7sus2
My sister used to sing to Whitney, mmm
                   Db7sus2
My mama caught the gambling bug, mmm
                Db/Gb
We came up in a lonely castle, mmm
            Db/Gb
My papa was behind them bars, mmm
                B/E
We never had to want for nothing, mmm
                 B/E
Said all we ever need is love, mmm
           Bbm
We see the same things
            Eb7sus2
We sing the same songs
            Db7sus2
We feel the same grief
          Db7sus2
Bleed the same blood
                   Db/Gb
You grew up in the home beside me
               Db/F
I always had a friend to call
                    Db/Eb
How could I make it here without you? Mmm
               Db/Ab
I pray I leave before you're gone

Hey, my little youth is crying
           Eb7sus2
I'm almost home, almost home
                Db7sus2
Look no further riots, mmm
           Db7sus2
Working my fingers to the bone
             Db/Gb
See I do the best I can, mmm
           Db/Gb
Mama was a farmer, mmm
           B/E
Papa was a goner, mmm
