This is a really simple song, let's hope i didn't screw up
Enjoy (if you're into it)

CHORUS
     G                D
Alright, already the show goes on
     Em                        Bm7
alright, till the morning we dream so long
    C                      D    
anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
     Am
just remember when you come up
     D
the show goes on!

VERSE 1
G                                  D
Have you ever had the feeling that you was being had
           Em
Dont that sh_t that make you mad
      D                           C
They treat you like a slave, with chains all on your soul,
        D                              C
and put whips up on your back, they be lying through they teeth
        D
hope you slip up off your path
        G
I dont switch up I just laugh
       D
put my kicks up on they desk
    Em                          D
unaffected by they threats than get busy on they a_s
           C
see thats how that ChiTown made me
        D
Thats how my daddy raised me
      C                                 D
that glittering may not be gold, dont let no body play me
G                          D
if you are my homeboy, you never have to pay me
   Em                             D
Go on and put your hands up, when times are hard you stand up
C                       D
L-U-P the man, cause a brand that the fans trust
   C                           D
so even if they ban us theyll never slow my plans up!

CHORUS
     G                D
Alright, already the show goes on
     Em                        Bm7
alright, till the morning we dream so long
    C                      D    
anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
     Am
just remember when you come up
     D
the show goes on!

Just wanted to say that the D/B chord, a d chord with a B-root is more properly notated as a Bm7 chord, but great tab :)
