[Company]:One, two, three, four, five
          Six, seven, eight, nine...

[Burr]   :There are ten things you need to know...

[Company]:Number one!

[Burr]   :We rowed across the Hudson at dawn
          Fm/Ab                      Bbm
          My friend William. P Van Ness signed on as my-

[Company]:Number two!

[Burr]   :I watched Hamilton arrive with his crew
          Fm/Ab                     Bbm
          Nathaniel Pendleton and a doctor that he knew

[Company]:Number three!

[Burr]   :I watched Hamilton examine the terrain
          Fm/Ab                            Bbm
          I wish I could tell you what was happening in his brain
          Fm                       Cm/G
          This man has poisoned my political pursuits

          Fm            Cm/G    Fm/Ab  Bbm
[Company]:Most disputes die and no one shoots!
          Number four!

[Burr]   :Hamilton drew first position
          Fm/Ab                       Bbm
          Looking to the world like a man on a mission
          Fm                       Cm/G
          This is a soldier with a marksman's ability
          Fm/Ab                                Bbm
          The doctor turned around so he could have deniability


[Burr]   :Now I didn't know this at the time but we were-

          Fm/Ab                   Bbm
[Burr &  :Near the same spot your son died is that why-


[Burr]   :He examined his gun with such rigor
          Fm/Ab                        Bbm
          I watched as he methodically fiddled with the trigger


[Burr]   :Confession time! Here's what I got
          Fm/Ab                                  Bbm
          My fellow soldiers will tell you I'm a terrible shot

[Company]:Number eight!

[Burr &  :Your last chance to negotiate 
Hamilton] Fm/Ab                        Bbm
          Send in your seconds, see if they can set the record straight

[Burr]   :They won't teach you this in your classes
          But look it up Hamilton was wearing his glasses
          Why? If not to take deadly aim
          It's him or me, the world will never be the same
          I had only one thought before the slaughter
          This man will not make an orphan of my daughter

[Company]:Number nine!

[Burr]   :Look him in the eye, aim no higher
          Fm/Ab                      Bbm
          Summon all the courage you require

          Then count-

[Company]:One, two, three, four, five
          Six, seven, eight, nine-
          Number ten! Paces! FIRE!

[Hamilton]:I imagine death so much it feels more like a memory
           Is this where it gets me? On my feet, several feet ahead of me
           I see it coming do I run or fire my gun or let it be?
           There is no beat, no melody
           Burr, my first friend, my enemy
           Maybe the last face I ever see
           If I throw away my shot is this how you'll remember me?
           What if this bullet is my legacy? Legacy?!?!
           What is a legacy?
           It's planting seeds in a garden you never get to see
           I wrote some notes at the beginning of a song a someone will sing for me
           America, you great unfinished symphony, you sent for me
           You let me make a difference
           A place where even orphaned immigrants can leave their fingerprints
           And rise up
           I'm running out of time, I'm running and my time's up
           Wise up! Eyes up!
           I catch a glimpse of the other side
           Laurens leads a soldiers chorus on the other side
           My son is on the other side
           He's with my mother on the other side
           Washington is watching from the other side
           Teach me how to say goodbye, rise up, rise up
           Rise up, Eliza!
           My love take your time, I'll see you on the other side
           Rise a glass to freedom...

[Burr]   : He aims his pistol at the sky wait!
           Db, Bbm, Fm/C
                         I strike him right between his ribs
           Db, Bbm, Fm   
                         I walk towards him but I am ushered away
           Db, Bbm, Fm/C 
                         They row him back across the Hudson
           Db, Bbm, Fm 
                         I get a drink
           Db, Bbm, Fm/C
                         I hear wailing in the streets
           Db, Bbm, Fm 
                         Somebody tells me "you'd better hide"
           Db, Bbm, Fm/C
                         They say Angelica and Eliza
           Db, Bbm
                         Were both at his side when he died...
           Bbm                        Dbsus       Db
           Death doesn't discriminate between the sinners and the saints
           Absus           Ab
           It takes and it takes and it takes and
           Bbm                  Dbsus    Db         Gbsus
           History obliterates, in every picture it paints
           It paints me and all my mistakes
           Bbm            Dbsus        Db      Absus                          Ab
           When Alexander aimed at the sky, he may have been the first one to die
                               Bbm          Dbsus
           But I'm the one who paid for it
                Db         Ab
           I survived but I paid for it   
           Bbm         Dbsus    Db      Absus    Ab
           Now I'm the villian in your history
           Bbm       Dbsus     Db  Gbsus     Gb
           I was too young and blind to see
           Bbm       Dbsus Db Absus       Ab
           I should've known, I should've known
                         Bbm                  Dbsus Db Absus Ab
           The world was wide enough for both Hamilton and me
                         Bbm                  Db           Gb
           The world was wide enough for both Hamilton and me...
