[Intro] Em, D, Bm, C


[Verse 1: Macklemore]

Em                                                                           D
Return of the Mack, get up! what it is, what it does, what it is, what it isnt
                     Bm                                     Bm
Looking for a better way to get up out of bed
                                       C                                   C
Instead of getting on the internet and checking a new hit 
      Em                                               D
Get up! fresh out pimp strut walking, little bit of humble, little bit of cautious
        Bm                                                    C
Somewhere between like rocky and cosby sweatergang nope nope yall cant copy
        Em                          D                                 Bm    C
Yup. Bad, moonwalking, this here, is our party, my posses been on broadway,
And we did it, our way. 
Grown music, I shed my skin and put my bones into everything I record to it
And yet Im on~
Let that stage light go and shine on down, got that Bob Barker suit game and plinko in my style.
Money, stay on my craft and stick around for those pounds, 
But I do that to pass the torch and put on for my town
Trust me. On my I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T shit hustler,
Chasing dreams since I was 14 with the four track bussing halfway cross that city 
with the backpack, fat cat, crushing

Labels out here, 
Nah they cant tell me nothing
We give that to the people, 
Spread it across the country
Labels out here, 
Nah they cant tell me nothing
We give it to the people, 
Spread it across the country


[Hook: Ray Dalton]

                Em                         D
Can we go back, this is the moment
                      Bm                                 C
Tonight is the night, well fight till its over
                               Em                                 D
So we put our hands up like the ceiling cant hold us
Bm                           C
like the ceiling cant hold us
Can we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, well fight till its over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling cant hold us
like the ceiling cant hold us


[Verse 2: Macklemore]

Nah, can I kick it? thank you. yeah Im so damn grateful.
I grew up, really wanted gold fronts
But thats what you get when wu tang raised you
Yall cant stop me, go hard like I got an 808 in my heart beat
And Im eating at the beat like you gave a little speed to a great white shark on shark week
Raw. Tell me go up. Gone!
deuces goodbye. I got a world to see, and my girl she wanna see Rome, 
Ceasar make you a believer. nah I never ever did it for a throne. 
that validation comes from giving it back to the people. nah sing a song and it goes like
Raise those hands, this is a party
We came here to live life like nobody was watching
I got my city right behind me
If I fall, they got me then from that failure gain humility and then we keep marching ourselves


[Hook: Ray Dalton]

Can we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, well fight till its over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling cant hold us
like the ceiling cant hold us
Can we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, well fight till its over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling cant hold us
like the ceiling cant hold us
like the ceiling cant hold us


[Bridge: Macklemore and Ray Dalton]

Na na na na, na na na na
Hey-ee ay-ee ay-ee ay ay-ee ay-ee, hey
And all my people say

Na na na na, na na na na
Hey-ee ay-ee ay-ee ay ay-ee ay-ee, hey
And all my people say
Ma-kle-more


[Hook: Ray Dalton]

Can we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, well fight till its over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling cant hold us
like the ceiling cant hold us
Can we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, well fight till its over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling cant hold us
like the ceiling cant hold us.

After the break after 'eating at the beat', beginning on 'Raw!', the pattern changes to:

Em > G > D > Em 4x, then back to the main pattern for the chorus.

I'm not sure if it's a sample, purposely used/borrowed or a coincidence, but it's the same progression as "Make It Rain" by Fat Joe.
