[Verse 1]
F                 Am
I have a new hero now, a handsome
      Dm                   F
Black man from a different time
           Bb               C              Dm
A previous decade in a fast-paced America
  Bb                       A
I have a brand new take on history and now
    F                         G 
I believe in the law, yes sir, I do
                 C             F                    Bb  F
Believe in things like America, I still do believe
    F                    Am
When people say they love the law
                Dm                     F
This model of a man is what they talk about
             Bb                    C                   Dm
A tower of a man in the history of this great country
      Bb                         A
A righteous and a mighty force to wash away
             F 
The shameful sins of a dark chapter
G             C             F              Bb  F
In the history of this fine land, you see

[Chorus]
     Bb       C                   Dm           F
Hey, Thurgood Marshall, won't you help me out
       Bb        C                       Dm    F
'cause I've been slowly fading away this year
    Bb       C                   Dm           F
And Thurgood Marshall, don't you let me down
                 Bb   Bb (hold)
'cause I want to be inspired and a-mystified by the law

[Instrumental]
F  Am Dm F  Bb C  Dm  
Bb A  F  G  C  F  Bb F

[Verse 2]
   F               Am
Oh, Aristotle once said the law is reason
    Dm                     F
Free from passion, feeling and emotion, 
Bb                C              Dm
Or some other rich earth bullshit like that
             Bb                A 
But Thurgood Marshall was a man so full of heart
              F                G
That made the law bow down and recognize
              C                  F
That love and earnest respect is what this
       Bb             F
Country is all about
        F              Am
I was a sad law student lost in all the books
Dm                       F
Piled in a corner of the library,
  Bb                C                       Dm
A weary caffeinated soldier of the big man
            Bb                          A
And Justice Marshall reached out of the history books
             F                    G
And spoke to me, 'cause those dead do rise again
C             F                    Bb  F
 Yes sir they still do rise again

[Chorus]
     Bb       C                   Dm           F
Hey, Thurgood Marshall, won't you help me out
       Bb        C                       Dm    F
'cause I've been slowly fading away this year
    Bb       C                   Dm           F
And Thurgood Marshall, don't you let me down
                 Bb   Bb (hold)
'cause I want to be inspired and a-mystified by the law

[Instrumental]
F  Am Dm F  Bb C  Dm  
Bb A  F  G  C  F  Bb F

[Verse 3]
     F            Am                     Dm          F
Some day in the future, I'll have whiskey and fine cigars
         Bb                      C                 Dm
I'll have a favorite steak restaurant down on wall street
          Bb                A                F
I'll done club a young seal pup for the corporation and
        G                        C        
I won't know what to do with all this viscous
   F         Bb           F        
Garnet blood on my hands
               F                           Am
I'll need a sermon on the mount, need to be born again
     Dm                   F            Bb              C       Dm
Turn a new leaf, a second spring, a new and visceral reminder
             Bb             A            
That good can triumph over evil, and the law
         F                G
Can be a terrifying blunt force to strike the
C              F          Bb             F
Love of country into brave young hearts

[Chorus]
     Bb       C                   Dm           F
Hey, Thurgood Marshall, won't you help me out
       Bb        C                       Dm    F
'cause I've been slowly fading away this year
    Bb       C                   Dm           F
And Thurgood Marshall, don't you let me down
                 Bb   Bb (hold)
'cause I want to be inspired and a-mystified by the law

[Outro]
F  Am Dm F  Bb C  Dm
