[INTRO]
Em Dm

[Verse 1]
Em                                Dm
Summertime in Virginia was a oven(oven)
Em                                                Dm
All the kids eating ice cream with their cousins (cousins)
Em                                                Dm
I was studyin' while you was playing the dozens (dozens)
Em                                    Dm
Don't act like you was there when you wasn't

[Refrain 1]
Em                                                 Dm
Runnin' from the man (man) runnin' from the badge (badge)
Em                                    Dm
Don't act like you was there when you wasn't
Em                                                     Dm        
Runnin' toward our plans (plans) and the judges hands (hands)
Em                                    Dm
Don't act like you was there when you wasn't

[Pre-Chorus]
Em                                    Dm
I know they say you crawl for your own
Em                          Dm
But in my mind I already jog
Em                              Dm
If I stand still I cannot get far
Em                         Dm
They want the Moon, I'm on Mars

[Chorus]
Dm                F#       F
Sometime my mind dives deep
Em
When I'm runnin'
                Dm       F#
I don't want no free ride
F                                 Em
I'm just sick and tired of runnin'
Dm            F#
Some nights I cry
F                       Em
Cause I can see the day comin'
        Dm  F#
Together we fight
F               B
Oh, but no more runnin'

Em Dm

[Verse 2]
Em                                           Dm
You and I are not different from each other (other)
Em                                            Dm
Shut our eyes, when we slumber I see numbers (numbers)
Em                                              Dm
Black and white, we're computers, I am colored (colored)
Em                                    Dm
Don't act like you was there when you wasn't

[Refrain 2]
Em                                              Dm
From runnin' to exams (exams) to jobs for a man (man)
Em                                    Dm
Don't act like you was there when you wasn't
Em                                                        Dm
In the law of the land (land) the women were often banned (banned)
Em                                    Dm
Don't act like you was there when you wasn't

[Pre-Chorus]
Em                                    Dm
I know they say you crawl for your own
Em                          Dm
But in my mind I already jog
Em                               Dm
If I stand still I cannot get far
Em                         Dm
They want the Moon, I'm on Mars
