[Intro] 

F#


[BURR]

Bm        
How does a bastard, orphan, son of a whore and a
F#
Scotsman, dropped in the middle of a forgotten
G
Spot in the Caribbean by Providence, impoverished, in squalor
D               F#/A#
Grow up to be a hero and a scholar?


[LAURENS]

Bm
The ten-dollar Founding Father without a father
F#
Got a lot farther by workin’ a lot harder
G
By bein’ a lot smarter, By bein’ a self-starter
D                                F#/A#
By fourteen, they placed him in charge of a trading charter


[JEFFERSON]

Bm
And every day while slaves were being slaughtered and carted
F#
Away across the waves, he struggled and kept his guard up
G
Inside, he was longing for something to be a part of
D                             F#/A#
The brother was ready to beg, steal, borrow, or barter


[MADISON]

Bm
Then a hurricane came, and devastation reigned
F#
Our man saw his future drip, drippin’ down the drain
G
Put a pencil to his temple, connected it to his brain
D                                  F#/A#
And he wrote his first refrain, a testament to his pain


[BURR]

Bm
Well the word got around, they said, “This kid is insane, man!”
F#
Took up a collection just to send him to the mainland
G
“Get your education, don’t forget from whence you came, and
D                                F#/A#
The world’s gonna know your name! What’s your name, man?"


[HAMILTON]

Bm
Alexander Hamilton
F#/A#
My name is Alexander Hamilton
G
And there’s a million things I haven’t done
D                           F#/A#
But just you wait, just you wait


[ELIZA]

Bm
When he was ten, his father split, full of it, debt-ridden
F#
Two years later, see Alex and his mother, bed-ridden
G
Half-dead, sittin’ in their own sick, The scent thick


[COMPANY]

D                            F#/A#
And Alex got better but his mother went quick


[WASHINGTON]

Bm
Moved in with a cousin, the cousin committed suicide
F#
Left him with nothin’ but ruined pride, somethin’ new inside


[WASHINGTON & COMPANY]

G
A voice saying "(Alex) you gotta fend for yourself"


[WASHINGTON]

D                                        F#/A#
He started retreatin’ and readin’ every treatise on the shelf


[BURR]

Bm
There would’ve been nothin’ left to do for someone less astute
F#
He would’ve been dead or destitute without a cent of restitution
G
Started workin’, clerkin’ for his late mother’s landlord
D                               F#/A#
Tradin’ sugar cane and rum and other things he can’t afford
Bm
(Scammin’) for every book he can get his hands on
F#
(Plannin’) for the future, see him now as he stands on (pooh)
G
The bow of a ship headed for a new land
D                  F#/A#
In New York you can be a new man


[HAMILTON & COMPANY]

Bm
In New York you can be a new man (Just you wait)
G7
In New York you can be a new man (Just you wait)
Em9
In New York you can be a new man
F#7sus
In New York
F#/A#
Just you wait


[COMPANY & COMPANY]

Bm
Alexander Hamilton (Alexander Hamilton)
G7
We are waiting in the wings for you (waiting in the wings for you)
Em9
You could never back down
                               F#7sus   F#7/C# 
You never learned to take your time     Oh 
Bm   
Alexander Hamilton (Alexander Hamilton)
G7
When America sings for you
Em9
Will they know what you overcame?
Bm/D                         Em
Will they know you rewrote the game?
Bm/F#          Em9/G  D/D    F#7/A#
The world will never be the same, oh


[BURR]

Bm                             Bm/C#
The ship is in the harbor now, see if you can spot him
Bm/D                  Em7
Another immigrant comin’ up from the bottom
Em/G                           Em/C#
His enemies destroyed his rep, America forgot him


[MULLIGAN/MADISON & LAFAYETTE/JEFFERSON]

F#7sus F#7
We     fought with him

[LAURENS/PHILIP]

F#7sus  F#7
Me?   I died for him

[WASHINGTON]

Bm9/F#  F#7
Me?   I trusted him

[ELIZA & ANGELICA & PEGGY/MARIA]

Em6/F#  F#
Me?   I loved him

[BURR]

C#m7                   F#
And me? I’m the   damn fool that shot him


[COMPANY]

Em/G                                D
There’s a million things I haven’t done
           Em6/F#
But just you wait


[BURR]

F#7         Bm/D  F#7/C# 
What’s your name, man?


[COMPANY]

Bm
Alexander Hamilton!
