Chorus:
Am          Dm
Yet again I'm hustling, hustling, hustling
Em          Dm                       
Yet again I'm hustling, hustling, hustling
Am          G           C        F
Yet again I'm hustling, hustling, hustling
    C                          
But I can't seem to catch a dime
Em                                   G 
Take a little hit and I lose the time


Verse 1:
           Am           Dm
I took the man and his horse
And ran before he looked up
           Am            Dm
I said the light's gonna change
But I'm calm and feeling warm
            Am               Dm   Am  G
And now I'm sticking out my hands
            F
And feeling weightless again
           Am           Dm
You got to push, got to shove
I've got to eat before they eat me
        Am             Dm
Got the crown and the cup
I've got to write to my family
              Am               Dm        
And say, "I'm calm and feeling warm."
    Am       G       Em       F
I'm not quite there, but I'm close
                         G
And it's a world of a difference


Chorus


Verse 2:
             Am          Dm
I've got the worst all behind me
Yeah they'll never be able to find me
        Am           Dm
I'm the king of the city
I'm a roach and they're all primates
        Am   Dm    Am   G
This is meal time, real life
         F
I'm not gonna fight    
No, I'm gonna start a war
Am          Dm        
  I've been right, I've been wrong
My smokes have come and gone
Am         Dm
  I've been crazy
Been fed enough to not wind up dead
Am       Dm
  And I'm lonely
   Am             G      Em      F
My eyes have been closed to the world
                               G   
'Cause the world's got nothing for me


Chorus (x2)


Instrumental: Am-Dm  Em-Dm  G Am-G  C-F C  Em  G


Ending:
Am          Dm
Yet again I'm hustling, hustling, hustling
Em          Dm                        G
Yet again I'm hustling, hustling, hustling
Am          G           C        F        C  Em  G
Yet again I'm hustling, hustling, hustling
