Inútil from In The Heights (by Lin-Manuel Miranda)


[VERSE 1]
C
   This isn't happening
 C/A
Inútil! Useless. 
C
  Just like my father was before me:
 C/A
Inútil. Useless. 
C
  And every day he cut the cane
C/D                                  C/A
    He came home late and prayed for rain     
           C/G
Prayed for rain
C
And on the days when nothing came
C/D                                 C/A
   My father's face was lined with shame
    C/Ab           C/G
He'd sit me down beside him and he'd say:


[CHORUS]
F                  G
  My father was a farmer 
G                 Am
His father was a farmer
                   C
And you will be a farmer
C              
But I told him 
F                           G
"Papi, I'm sorry I'm going farther"
G                 Abaug
"I'm getting on a plane
                            Bb
"And I am gonna change the world some day!"
                  C
And he slapped my face


[VERSE 2]

C/D
    He stood there staring at me
C/A         G
    Useless
C
Today
C/D
    My daughter's home and I am
Am        Gsus4  G
   Useless
C                  C/D
And as a baby she amazed 
C/D                                 C/A  G
Me with the things she learned each day
C
  She used to stay on the fire escape
C/D                                C/A
    While all the other kids would play
   C/Ab            C/G
And I would stand beside her and I'd say


[CHORUS]
F                     G
I'm proud to be your father
G                      Am
Cuz' you work so much harder
Am                    C
And you are so much smarter
C
Than I was at your age
F
  And I always knew
G
  That she would fly away
Abaug
      That she was gonna change the
Fmaj7/Bb      Am
World    some day


[OUTRO]
       Am
I will not
       Am/C
Be the reason
        Am/F            Am/E
That my family can't succeed
       Am
I will do
        Am/C
What it takes
             Am/F            Am/E
They'll have everything they need
          Am
Or all my work
       Am/C
All my life
      Am/D      Am/E
Everything I've sacrificed
Am/G   Am/G
Will have been 
Am Am/C C/F  Am
Useless
