Helpless from Hamilton the musical (Capo 1)


[Intro]

E                     A
Ooh, I do I do I do I do, hey
E              A
Ooh, I do I do I do                         
Boy you got me


[Chorus]

 E         A
Helpless, look into your eyes and the sky’s the limit
     E         A
I’m helpless, down for the count and I’m drowning in ‘em


(Eliza)

E
I have never been the type to try and grab the spotlight
A
We were at a revel with some rebels on a hot night
E
Laughing at my sister as she’s dazzling the room
      A                                         
Then you walked in and my heart went “Boom!”
E
Trying to catch your eye from the side of the ballroom
A
Everybody’s dancing and the band’s top volume
E
Grind to the rhythm as we wine and dine
         A
Grab my sister and whisper “Yo, this one’s mine.”
C#m                                           A
   My sister made her way across the room to you
                                             C#m
And I got nervous, thinking “What’s she gonna do?”
                                                 B
She grabbed you by the arm, I’m thinking “I’m through”
Then you look back at me and suddenly I’m 


[Chorus]

 E         A
Helpless, look into your eyes and the sky’s the limit
     E         A
I’m helpless, down for the count and I’m drowning in ‘em


[Chorus]

 E         A
Helpless, look into your eyes and the sky’s the limit
     E         A
I’m helpless, down for the count and I’m drowning in ‘em

E
One week later, I’m writing a letter nightly
A
Now my life gets better, every letter that you write me
E
Laughing at my sister cause she wants to form a harem
N.C.


(Angelica) 

I’m just saying if you really loved me you would share him


(Eliza) 

Ha!
E
Two weeks later in the living room stressin’
    A
My father’s stone faced while you’re asking for his blessin’
    E
I’m dying inside as you wine and dine
         A                                                          C#m
And I’m trying not to cry cause there’s nothing that your mind can’t do
                                            A
My father makes his way across the room to you
                                       C#m
I panic for a second thinking “we’re through”
                                           B
But then he shakes your hand and says “Be true”
And you turn back to me, smiling, and I’m


[Chorus]

 E         A
Helpless, look into your eyes and the sky’s the limit
     E         A
I’m helpless, down for the count and I’m drowning in ‘em


[Chorus]

 E         A
Helpless, look into your eyes and the sky’s the limit
     E         A
I’m helpless, down for the count and I’m drowning in ‘em


(Hamilton)
  E
Eliza, I don’t have a dollar to my name
    A
An acre of land, a troop to command, a dollop of fame
E
All I have’s my honor, a tolerance for pain
   A
A couple of college credits and my top-notch brain
E
Insane, your family brings out a different side of me
A
Peggy confides in me, Angelica tried to take a bite of me
E
No stress, my love for you is never in doubt
               A
We’ll get a little place in Harlem and we’ll figure it out
          C#m
I’ve been livin’ without a family since I was a child
           A
My father left, my mother died, I grew up buckwild
       C#m
But I’ll never forget my mother’s face, that was real
                       B
And long as I’m alive, Eliza, swear to God
You’ll never feel so…


[Chorus]

 E         A
Helpless, look into your eyes and the sky’s the limit
     E         A
I’m helpless, down for the count and I’m drowning in ‘em


[Chorus]

 E         A
Helpless, look into your eyes and the sky’s the limit
     E         A
I’m helpless, down for the count and I’m drowning in ‘em

E A
    A
In New York, you can be a new man
   C#m
In New York, you can be a new man
    B                          A     E
In New York, you can be a new man

Great! Though I think when it gets to C#m (seen first at "my sister made her way across the room to you") it might be C#m E A instead of C#m A C#m. I could be wrong though :)
