[Intro]
Bb    F    C    F   x4

[Verse 1]
Bb          F             C             F
 Me and Mr. Washington go forth with no real direction
Bb               F                C             F
 Dreaming of the day we drive our cars into the ocean
Bb           F              C              F
 And all the people looking on will wonder what to say
Bb            F              C                 F
 And live confused about us 'til the day they    do the same
Bb         F        C             F
 And they see while swimming that they are free

[Bridge]

Fa doo doo doo doo doo

[Verse 2]
Bb           F             C          F
 Reach for a solace I find only in my brother sky
Bb            F                C                F
 We are relieved to know that someday this will pass us by
Bb               F                 C       F
 And it's got us feeling quite alright
Bb          F             C             F
 We have no money and we certainly have lost focus
Bb           F           C                F
 Why have we landed on a planet that's as hopeful as this
Bb               F                C        F
 We've heard the word: "Move Westward"

[Chorus]
          Bb        C          F/A    F/G   F
Well I've thrown myself to the stra - tos - phere
     Bb        C            F   F/G   F/A
I've thrown my heart to the at - mo - sphere
    Bb        C                F/A    F/G   F
And now these words are comin' outta  my    ears
Bb       F   C      Dm
"How did I   end up here?"
Bb       F   C      Dm7
"How did I   end up here?"
Bb       F   C      Dm
"How did I   end up here?"
Bb       F   C      Dm      Dm7
"How did I   end up here?"          Woo!

Bb          F             C           F
 Me and ol' Napoleon cry "Liberty, oh liberty"
Bb              F             C                    F
 The crimes committed in your name have brought me to my knees
Bb            F            C       F
 And now I'm trembling
Bb                F                  C         F
 Malcolm, Brother Malcolm there's an X upon my door tonight
Bb             F                  C          F
 Wish you were here to teach this generation how to fight
Bb          F         C        F
 Enough of all this talking           Well...

 Mr. Thomas Jefferson do you have any good suggestions?
    Bb             F              C                 F
I'm trying to stay hopeful, but I got all this frustration
Bb        F             C              F
 I wanna see my future get progressively better
Bb        F                C            F
 I wanna see a world where equality is what matters
Bb              F              C             F
 Let's make the call and move forward (Move forward!)

Well I've thrown myself to the stra - tos - phere

I've thrown my heart to the at - mo - sphere
    Bb        C                F/A    F/G   F
And now these words are comin' outta  my    ears
