[Verse 1]
C         Am                      Em
Theodosia writes me a letter every day
C                   Am                         Em
I'm keeping the bed warm while her husband is away
C                           Am
He's on the British side in Georgia
     Em
He's trying to keep the colonies in line
C                      Am
But he can keep all of Georgia
    Em (Refrain)
Theodosia, she's mine


[Chorus 1]
Am                     C                              G
Love doesn't discriminate between the sinners and the saints, it takes and it takes and it takes
    Am                     C                    F
And we keep loving anyway, we laugh and we cry and we break and we make our mistakes
    Am                   C                     G
And if there's a reason I'm by her side when so many have tried
                    Am           C
Then I'm willing to wait for it
               F
I'm willing to wait for it


[Verse 2]
C                    Am                 Em
My grandfather was a fire and brimstone preacher
C                             Am                       Em
But there are things that the homilies and hymns won't teach ya
C               Am
My mother was a genius
   Em
My father commanded respect
C                   Am
When they died they left no instructions
Em (Refrain)
Just a legacy to protect


[Chorus 2]
Am                     C                              G
Death doesn't discriminate between the sinners and the saints, it takes and it takes and it takes
Am                     C                    F
We keep living anyway, we rise and we fall and we break and we make our mistakes
    Am                   C                     G
And if there's a reason I'm still alive while everyone who loves me has died
               Am          C
I'm willing to wait for it
               F
I'm willing to wait for it
Am            
(Wait for it, wait for it)


[Bridge]
C                                         Am
I am the one thing in life I can control
F                             Am        
I am inimitable, I am an original
C                                  Am    
I'm not falling behind or running late
F (refrain)                          Am    
I'm not standing still, I am lying in wait

C                                 Am      
Hamilton faces an endless uphill climb
F                                            Am   
He has something to prove, he has nothing to lose
C                                            Am     
Hamilton's pace is relentless, he wastes no time
G                 F
What is it like in his shoes?


[Chorus 3]
Am                         C                G
Hamilton doesn't hesitate, he exhibits no restraint and he takes and he takes and he takes
    Am                       C             Em
And he keeps winning anyway, changes the game he plays and he raises the stakes
    Am                  C                       G                  
And if there's a reason he seems to thrive when so few survive, then goddamnit
               Am            C
I'm willing to wait for it
               F
I'm willing to wait for it


[Chorus 4]
Am                   C                                G
Life doesn't discriminate between the sinners and the saints, it takes and it takes and it takes
Am                     C                       F                      
We keep living anyway, we rise and we fall and we break and we make our mistakes
    Am                  C                      G
And if there's a reason I'm still alive while so many have died, then I'm willing to—

[Outro]
C     Am     Em
                Wait for it
C     Am     Em
                Wait for it
