(Maya Angelou's poem)

     Am

You may write me down in history

          Dm
With your bitter twisted lies

        Dm
You may trod me down in the very dirt

          Dm       C         Am
And still like the dust I'll rise


        Am
Does my happiness upset you

    Dm
Why are you best with gloom

        Dm
Cause I laugh like I've got an oil well

       Dm    C     Am
Pumpin' in my living room


           Am
So you may shoot me with your words

        Dm
You may cut me with your eyes

         Dm
And I'll rise

     F
I'll rise

     Am
I'll rise


           Am
Out of the shacks of history's shame

          Dm
Up from a past rooted in pain

     Dm
I'll rise

     F
I'll rise

     Am
I'll rise

(Am Dm Dm Dm C Am)
Now did you want to see me broken
Bowed head and lowered eyes
Shoulders fallen down like tear drops
Weakened by my soulful cries


(Am Dm Dm Dm C Am)
Does my confidence upset you
Don't you take it awful hard
Cause I walk like I've got a diamond mine
Breakin up in my front yard

(Am Am Dm Dm F Am)
So you may shoot me with your words
You may cut me with your eyes
And I'll rise
I'll rise
I'll rise

(Am Am Dm Dm F Am)
Out of the shacks of history's shame
Up from a past rooted in pain
I'll rise
I'll rise
I'll rise

(Am Dm Dm Dm C Am)
So you may write me down in history
With your bitter twisted lies
You may trod me down in the very dirt
And still like the dust I'll rise

(Am Dm Dm Dm C Am)
Does my happiness upset you
Why are you best with gloom
Cause I laugh like I've got a goldmine
Diggin' up in my living room

(Am Am Dm Dm F Am)
Now you may shoot me with your words
You may cut me with your eyes
And I'll rise
I'll rise
I'll rise

(Am Am Dm Dm F Am)
Out of the shacks of history's shame
Up from a past rooted in pain
I'll rise
I'll rise
I'll rise
