Hi pls rate this Tab, I think it's a really great song, but it wasn't still here, 
so I made it on my own...
Hope you like it!

Paula Cole – Be Somebody

E              H
I want to be somebody 
C#m                        A
I want to make a difference
E  
Little boy caught in a drive-by 
G#m
Witnessed the killer who made his daddy die, 
A
And 'cause he identified and signed the dotted line,
H
He could feel it in his stomach, he signed away his life
E
Little boy who once was the leader of his class 
G#m
The little source of joy, always neatly dressed 
A
Now would hang his head and be left crying at his desk,
H
Was found with his mother, lying in her lap 
F#m
With two bullets in his chest 

F#m
And,oh my god,what is this madness? 
A
I will not let it kill by gladness 
F#m
And,oh my god, what is this madness? 
A              H            E
My joy inside will send this message 

        H
I want to be somebody 
C#m
I want to make a difference,
  A        H         E
For we all are children of the Mother
          H
I want to be somebody 
C#m
I want to make a difference,
A          H                     E       C#m  A  G#m
For we all are children of the Father

E
Outspoken man, leading sisters and brothers, 
G#m
Picked himself up from hustling,drugs and gutters
A
Doing time on the inside, he found a higher power 
H
Now, back with a mission to help us help each other 
E
Respected from bourgeoisie to homeless in the street
H
From universities, Africa, the Middle East 
A
And through the threats of death he spoke truth and set men free
H
But the power of the truth made enemies of the weak 
F#m
He was killed by his own people 

F#m
And, oh my god, what is this madness? 
A
I will not let it kill my gladness 
F#m
And, oh my god, what is this madness?
A               H             E
My joy inside will send this message 

           H
I want to be somebody 
C#m
I want to make a difference,
A           H                   E
For we all are children of the Mother
      H
I want to be somebody 
C#m
I want to make a difference
A      H             E
for we all are children 

E                                                 G#m
Ignite This Fire inside, this light that is the Truth 
A                                             H
Shake off the system's chains, no longer be their fool 
E                                     G#m
In the face of brutality, show the other cheek 
A                                      H
Trigger-happy policing will never kill our dignity 

F#m
And,oh my god, what is this madness? 
A
I will not let it kill my gladness 
F#m
And, oh my god, what is this madness? 
A                H             E        E  G#m  C#m  A  H  E   x2

For we all are children of the Father
