(Maya Angelou's poem)

     Em

You may write me down in history

          Am
With your bitter twisted lies

        Am
You may trod me down in the very dirt

          Am       G         Em
And still like the dust I'll rise


        Em
Does my happiness upset you

    Am
Why are you best with gloom

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

       Am    G     Em
Pumpin' in my living room


           Em
So you may shoot me with your words

        Am
You may cut me with your eyes

         Am
And I'll rise

     C
I'll rise

     Em
I'll rise


           Em
Out of the shacks of history's shame

          Am
Up from a past rooted in pain

     Am
I'll rise

     C
I'll rise

     Em
I'll rise

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


(Em Am Am Am G Em)
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

(Em Em Am Am C Em)
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

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

(Em Am Am Am G Em)
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

(Em Am Am Am G Em)
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

(Em Em Am Am C Em)
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

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