CHORUS

           Am     G      C
And any man who knows a thing knows
                Am         G        Am
He knows not a damn, damn thing at all
          Am    G       C
And every time I felt the hurt
                              Am   G      Am
And I felt the givin' gettin' me up off the wall

    Am        G      C
I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride
    Am        G      Am
I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze
    Am        G      C
I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride
    Am        G      Am
I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze


VERSE 1

            Am         G                        C
How did Mandela get the will to surpass the everyday
         Am             G      Am
When injustice had him caged and trapped in every way?
         Am         G            C
How did Gandhi ever withstand the hunger strikes and all?
       Am           G         Am
Didn't do it to gain power or money if I recall
        Am   G      C
It's to give,       I guess, I'll pass it on
        Am          G      Am
Mother thinks it'll lift the stress of Babylon
       Am   G         C
Mother knows,       my mother she suffered blows
        Am          G            Am
I don't know how we survived such violent episodes
      Am        G    C
I was so worried,  and hurt to see you bleed
        Am             G        Am
But as soon as you came out the hospital you gave me sweets
Am   G       C
Yeah,     they try to take you from me
              Am      G        Am
But you still only gave 'em some prayers and sympathy
     Am   G         C
Dear mama,       you helped me write this
    Am          G      Am
By showing me to give is priceless


CHORUS

        Am     G      C
And any man who knows a thing knows
               Am        G       Am
He knows not a damn, damn thing at all
          Am    G       C
And every time I felt the hurt
                              Am   G      Am
And I felt the givin' gettin' me up off the wall

    Am        G      C
I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride
    Am        G      Am
I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze
    Am        G      C
I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride
    Am        G      Am
I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze


VERSE 2

    Am       G     C
All I can say is the worst is over now
       Am            G        Am
We can serve the hard times, divorce, it's over now
            Am        G           C
They try to keep us out    but they doors is open now
          Am        G     Am
My nigga, Akon is gettin' awards and covers now
        Am    G       C
This is K'naan     and still reppin' the S
       Am         G         Am
Comin' out of Mogadishu and still draped in the mess
      Am             G      C
And no matter how we strong, homie
                     Am             G      Am
It ain't easy comin' out of where we from, homie
                           Am           G       C
And that's the reason why, I could never play for me
                           Am        G        Am
Tell 'em the truth is what my dead homies told me
                 Am         G            C
Ooh yeah, I take inspiration from the most heinous of situations
  Am         G           Am
Creating medication out my own tribulations
     Am    G        C
Dear Africa,     you helped me write this
     Am          G       Am
By showing me to give is priceless

CHORUS (same chord pattern throughout)

And any man who knows a thing knows
He knows not a damn, damn thing at all
And every time I felt the hurt
And I felt the givin' gettin' me up off the wall

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride
I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze
I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride
I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze

Nothing is perfect man, that's what the world is
All I know is I'm enjoying today
You know 'cause it isn't every day that you get to give

And any man who knows a thing knows
He knows not a damn, damn thing at all
And every time I felt the hurt
And I felt the givin' gettin' me up off the wall

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride
I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze
I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride
I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze

I got nothin' to complain about
You know where I'm from
You know where I'ma last, so
You know I was flyin' high

I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride
I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze
I'm just gonna take a minute and let it ride
I'm just gonna take a minute and let it breeze
