Verse
E          G                            Am              C
An old man told me, instead of spending billions on the war,
       E                G             Am   C
we can use some of that money, in the ghetto.
  E            G             Am                     C
I know some so poor, when it rains that's when they shower,
E         G
screaming "FIGHT THE POWER".
                Am      C
That's when the vulture devoured. 

E        G
If I was president...
Am       C
If I was president

E                   G
But the radio won't play this.
     Am              C
They call this rebel music.
E           G          Am          C
How can you refuse it, children of Moses? 

[Chorus]
E        G
If I was president...
Am       C
If I was president
E                     G
Tell the children the truth, the truth!
Am                   C
Christopher Columbus didn't discover America.
E             G
Tell them the truth, the truth YEAH! 
Am              C
Tell them about Marcus Garvey.
E                     G
Tell the children the truth YEAH! the truth!
Am              C
Tell them about Martin Luther King.
E             G
Tell them the truth,
G
The Truth.
Am              C
Tell them about JFK
E        G
If I was president,
        Am         C       E              G
I'd get elected on Friday, assasinated on Saturday,
Am        C
buried on Sunday.
E        G
If I was president...
Am       C       Em
If I was president


- Wyclef Jean
