Black Messiah

	  		C                 G               Bb                           F    
Everybody got the right to speak their mind, so don't shoot me for 
saying mine. 
F         A7                 Dm7      Bb 
Everybody talk about racial equality,   
F                A7                       Dm7   Bb 
'Cos everybody's equal in the good Lord's eyes.   
F                      C                             Dm7            
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.  

          F                 A7                   Dm7 Bb 
There's a self-made prophet living right next to me,   
            F                     A7                           Dm7   Bb 
He said the Black Messiah's gonna come and set the whole world free.   

F                        C            Dm7        Bb F              
C         F 
He looked at me with his evil eye and prophesied.   And he really 
believed it.  

F         A7         Dm7   A7                     Dm7  
He said a Black Messiah is gonna set the world on fire. 
    F       C          C7                          
And he's no liar, 'cos he has truly heard the word. 
F         A7                 Dm7      Bb 
Everybody talk about racial equality.   
            F          A7                     Dm7     Bb 
But I'm the only honky living on an all black street.   
F                       C              Dm7      Bb 
They knock me down 'cos they brown and I white.   

C                 G                         
Bb                           F    
Everybody got the right to speak their mind, so don't shoot me for 
saying mine. 
F A7 Dm Bb F A7 Dm Bb 
F          A7                 Dm7      Bb 
Everybody talk about racial equality,   
F               A7               Dm7     Bb 
Yeah, everybody talk about equal rights.   
F                  C                 Dm7          
But white's white, black's black and that's that. 
Bb F                             C         F 
   And that's the way you should leave it.  

F             A7         Dm7   A7                        Dm7  
Don't want no Black Messiah to come and set the world on fire. 
  F        C       C7                            
A Black Messiah is gonna come and rule the world. 
F         A7                   Dm7            Bb 
Everybody got to show a little give and take.   
     F           A7                      Dm7   Bb 
Everybody got to live with a little less hate.   
F               C                     Dm7          Bb 
Everybody gotta work it out, we gotta sort it out.   
       
Bb                           F    
Everybody got the right to speak their mind, so don't shoot me for 
saying mine.
