Verse 1:

D                      A
Now I've seen places and faces 
       Bm
and things you ain't never thought about thinking 
       F#m                           G
if you ain't peek then you must be drinking and smokin' 
 D                                   G
pretending not to locin' but you're brokin' 
                A
let me get you open
       D 
now little Timmy got his diploma and 
       A
little Jimmy got life 
       Bm                                      F#m
and Tamika around the corner just took her first hit off the pipe 
       G                         D
the other homie shot the other homie and ran off with his money 
       G                                         A
and when the other homies heard about it they thought that it was funny 
D
  but who's the dummy 
  A
Cuz, now you done lost the hustler 
    Bm                            F#m
a down-ass brother can never by replaced by a buster 
    G
and though I got love for ya 
    D
I know I can't trust ya 
     G                                     A
coz my crew is rollin' Hummers and your crew is rollin' dustas 
D                                        A
 and just because of that you act like you don't like the brother no more 
Bm                        F#m
  I guess that's just the way it goes 
     G
I ain't tryina preach 
    D
I believe I can reach 
      G
but your mind ain't prepared 
    A
I'll see you when you get there 



Chorus:

D         A           Bm      F#m
I'll see you when you get there 
            G        D
if you ever get there 
                 G       A
see you when you get there 
D         A           Bm      F#m
I'll see you when you get there 
            G        D
if you ever get there 
                 G       A
see you when you get there  



Verse 2:

D
More temptation and faith 
           A
I guess we livin' for the day 
         Bm                              F#m
I seen a man get swept off his feet by a boy with an AK 
          G                     D
the situation so twisted everybody gettin lifted 
          G                                 A
I'm just tryin to take care of my kids and handle my business 
D                             A
coz it way too serious so you gotta pay close attention 
       Bm                                   F#m
so you don't get caught sittin' when they come and do all the gettin' 
 G                                D
life is a big game so you gotta play it with a big heart 
        G                                       A
someone's gotta run a little faster cuz we gotta later start
D                                A
I'd be a fool to surrender when I know I can be a contender 
     Bm                                F#m
and if everybody's a sinner then everybody could ba a winner 
  G                         D
no matter you rag collar deep down we all brothers 
  G                                 A
and regardless of the times somebody up there still love us 
D                                   A
I'm a scuffle and struggle till I'm breathless and weak 
    Bm                                  F#m
I just strived my whole life to make it to the mountain peak 
 G                          D
always keep reaching sure to grab on to something 
   G                                   A
I'll be there when you get there when you wit the sound bumpin' 



Chorus: 

D         A           Bm      F#m
I'll see you when you get there 
            G        D
if you ever get there 
                 G       A
see you when you get there 
D         A           Bm      F#m
I'll see you when you get there 
            G        D
if you ever get there 
                 G       A
see you when you get there 



Verse 3:

D
You need to loosen up 
           A
and live a little 
          Bm
and if you got kids let them know how you feelin' 
 F#m
for your own sake give a little 
G
oh, you don't want to hear that 
D
you busy tryina stack 
G                                   A
and keep up with the Jones's taking advantage of your own 
       D                                           A
the realest homies that you've been knowing for the longest 
     Bm                                     F#m
but some ain't missing a good thing until it's gone 
               G                                              D
could have built an empire if not for the jealousy that divides us 
                 G
we prefer to keep our eyes shut to whats right when 
                A
theres something of all that we desire 
D                            A
so hold your head up high if your poor and righteous 
  Bm
I know time seems right 
        F#m
and the problems seem endless 
       G                              D
but at times of despair we gotta pull ourselves together 
                G                                    A
and if you feel you're out the game then you need to get back in it 
    D
coz nothing worse than a quitter 
    A                      Bm                  F#m
you gotta face responsibility one day, my brother 
              G                           D
so gather up your pitty and turn it to ambition 
                          G                   A
and put your vehicle and drive and stop by my side 



Chorus: 

D         A           Bm      F#m
I'll see you when you get there 
            G        D
if you ever get there 
                 G       A
see you when you get there 
D         A           Bm      F#m
I'll see you when you get there 
            G        D
if you ever get there 
                 G       A
see you when you get there 



Rap Bridge:
(Played by the String-Family of the Orchestra)

D                    A 
As we walk down the road of our destiny 
 Bm                 F#m
and the time comes to choose what shall it be
   G                      D  
the wide and crooked, or the straight and narrow 
   G                        A
we got one voice to give and one life to live 
D                         A
 stand up for something or lie down in your game 
Bm              F#m
listen to the song that we sing 
G                 D
 it's up to you to make it big 
G                    A
I guess I'll see you when you see me



Chorus: (x2 and Fade Out)

D         A           Bm      F#m
I'll see you when you get there 
            G        D
if you ever get there 
                 G       A
see you when you get there 
D         A           Bm      F#m
I'll see you when you get there 
            G        D
if you ever get there 
                 G       A
see you when you get there
