[VERSE 3] (Kendrick Lamar)
Am        Fmaj7
   Hey, I am   the truth
                 C                     G/G
   Hey, I am the wisdom of the fallen; I'm the youth
                 Am                  Fmaj7
   Hey, I am the greatest; hey, this is   the proof
               C                G/B
   Hey, I work hard, pray hard, pay dues
               Am                      Fmaj7
   Hey, I transform with pressure; I'm hands-on with effort
          C                G/B
   I fell twice before; my bounce back was special
       Am                 Fmaj7
   Letdowns will get you, and  the critics will test you
           C                     G/B
   But the strong will survive; ano - ther scar may bless you, ah
