Build a Bridge

Nahko varies where he plays the chords when he does this live. But I'm particular to play the verses as fret
chords so you can get the beat and those single strums going, and the chorus as open chords. Palm muting
parts of this song sounds sweet, too. 


So in the verse:

Dm = 5th fret
Gm = 10th fret
A = 5th fret



[Verse]

     Dm                  Gm
Said prepare me for, for long battle
       A
I am a witness, hold crystal bullets
            Dm
I drop the hatchet, you won't forget this
      Dm                  Gm
Said prepare me for, for long battle
       A
I am a witness, hold crystal bullets
            Dm
I drop the hatchet, you won't forget this



      Dm
Said, mine eyes have seen nothing but trouble
Gm
You must make peace with them gods and the devils
A
I can be rude, boy, I am not subtle
Dm
I tend to sneak in and burst all them bubbles
Dm
We are the ones, we been waiting to rumble
Gm
I torch my enemies out with a candle
A
Music is the weapon make empires crumble
Dm
We bring them bankers and wealthy to tremble



Dm               Gm
What we know is what we're owed
              A
Can't be too careful, shoot flaming arrows
              Dm
Hitting them wicked, burning them bridges
       Dm              Gm
Said, what we know is what we're owed
              A
Can't be too careful, shoot flaming arrows
              Dm
Hitting them wicked, burning them bridges



       Dm
I said I rep the misfits, (not the[?]) society
Gm
We struggle with housing, drugs, and sobriety
A
We're not from here, but born here respectively
Dm
Immigrated cause America raped my country
Dm
My bridge 'ain't built with no white-man money
       Gm
I'm on Indian time, you know you cannot rush me
A
I can be vicious, malicious, and ugly
  Dm
A danger to darkness, to better run quickly


Dm               Gm
What we know is what we're owed
              A

              Dm
Hitting them wicked, burning them bridges
       Dm              Gm
Said, what we know is what we're owed
              A

              Dm
Hitting them wicked, burning them bridges, said



[Chorus]

        F               C
I have come to build a bridge

[Verse]

        Dm
I said, life was pretty crazy, I was 9 months old
      Gm
Yeah, mama gave me up - 14 years old
      A
Said, I don't give a shit, grandmother, she was so bold
Dm
Son of that rape, my mama's body got sold
Dm
Not to say poppa didn't have a good soul
         Gm
Cause he did give me the anger, I was born so cold
A
Raised white Christian in a white neighborhood
          Dm
There was no bridges for me and my indigenous blood
            Dm
I said I'm confused, identity crisis
  Gm
Indigenous mastery is so timeless
        A
Now I'm building bridges so that it will all make sense
        Dm
Why I'm here with the music, so passionate
Dm
Got to ride hard or die trying
      Gm
Said, I am a rain cloud, storm white lighting
A
I am relentless stop at nothing
Dm
I'm el coyote, bridges building
Dm

        Dm
I said, I rock the one feather on me next head
Gm
Must stay humble, never be like chief headdress
A
Hang the flag upside down, I'm in distress
      Dm
Never take no title out of deepest respect
Dm
Welcome to Aquarius, son, you’re a legend
Gm
Guardian of the gate, it's gate number seven
A
I tame that beast and I ride the dragon
  Dm
I reincarnate as a wild stallion



Dm               Gm
What we know is what we're owed
              A
Can't be too careful, shoot flaming arrows
              Dm
Hitting them wicked, burning them bridges
       Dm              Gm
Said, what we know is what we're owed
              A
Can't be too careful, shoot flaming arrows

Hitting them wicked, burning them bridges, said
