C                 G
Everybody got the right to speak their mind
Bb                           F      f g g# (single notes)
so don't shoot me for saying mine.

F         A7                     Dm      Dm/C  Bb
Everybody talking about racial equality
     F           A7                       Dm    Dm/C  Bb
'cos everybody's equal in the good Lord's eyes.
    F                  C                            Dm            Dm/C Bb
But if I told you that God was black what would you think of that
F                     C        F  
I bet you wouldn't believe it.

          F6                A7                   Dm  Dm/C Bb
There's a self made prophet living right next to me
            F                     A7                           Dm  Dm/C Bb
he said the Black Messiah's gonna come and set the whole world free.
   F                     C               Dm         Dm/C Bb
He looked at me with his evil eye and he prophesied
F               C          F    f g g# a  
and he really believed it.

          A7        Dm     A7                     Dm
He said a Black Messiah is gonna set the world on fire
    F       C          C7                     F 
and he's no liar, 'cos he has truly heard the word.

F         A7                     Dm     Dm/C Bb
Everybody talking about racial equality
            F          A7                     Dm    Dm/C Bb
but I'm the only honky living on an all black street
     F                  C              Dm     Dm/C Bb
they knock me down 'cos they brown and I white.

C                 G
Everybody got the right to speak their mind
Bb                           F     f g g#
so don't shoot me for saying mine.

F         A7                     Dm     Dm/C Bb
F         A7                     Dm     Dm/C Bb
F         A7                     Dm     Dm/C Bb
Everybody talking about racial equality
         F         A7                  Dm     Dm/C Bb
you hear everybody talking about equal rights.
    F              C                 Dm          Dm/C Bb
But white's white, black's black and that's that
F              C              F          f g g# a
and that's the way you should leave it.

              A7        Dm     A7                        Dm
Don't want no Black Messiah to come and set the world on fire
  F         C      C7             C13      F
a Black Messiah is gonna come and rule the world
F                A7                     Dm   Dm/C Bb
Everybody got to show a little give and take
F                A7                      Dm   Dm/C Bb
Everybody got to live with a little less hate
F               C                     Dm          Dm/C Bb
Everybody gotta work it out, we gotta sort it out.

C                 G
Everybody got the right to speak their mind
Bb                           F
so don't shoot me for saying mine.
