Guitar chords with lyrics

A chord diagramG+G
I was born and raised in the ghetto

Talk with me and you'll know
A chord diagramC majorC                                      A chord diagramG+G
I wasn't satisfied with living on the side
                                         A chord diagramC majorC
I started looking around for a possibility
                     A chord diagramG+G  A chord diagramD MajorD                   A chord diagramG+G
But listen to my story,   of what became of me

A chord diagramG+G
I met a businessman

Who said he got some friends back East
A chord diagramC majorC
Said, "Why don't you come along?
                           A chord diagramG+G
Well we could help you atleast"

"Make you into a big star
                    A chord diagramC majorC
By playing your guitar"
                    A chord diagramG+G
But the joke was on me
A chord diagramD MajorD                       A chord diagramG+G  A chord diagramG7G7
 They left me flat to see

              A chord diagramD MajorD
Going back West (Going back West)
       A chord diagramC majorC                     A chord diagramG+G
Yes I know, I'll make out alright
              A chord diagramD MajorD
Going back West (Going back West)
          A chord diagramC majorC                  A chord diagramG+G
Where my music's playing all night
              A chord diagramC majorC                 A chord diagramD MajorD
Going back West (Going back West)
                A chord diagramG+G
Think I'll do alright

A chord diagramG+G
Struggling for recognition, identity and respect
A chord diagramC majorC                                             A chord diagramG+G
I got a lot of promises, they told me not to fret

Said, "We will stand by you
                   A chord diagramC majorC
If the going gets rough"
                      A chord diagramG+G
But when I started sinking
A chord diagramD MajorD                   A chord diagramG+G    A chord diagramG7G7
 They didn't even bluff

                    A chord diagramD MajorD
Going back West (Going back West)
       A chord diagramC majorC                     A chord diagramG+G
Yes I know, I'll make out alright
              A chord diagramD MajorD
Going back West (Going back West)
          A chord diagramC majorC                  A chord diagramG+G
Where my music's playing all night
              A chord diagramC majorC                 A chord diagramD MajorD
Going back West (Going back West)
                A chord diagramG+G
Think I'll do alright

(+ 1/2 Tom)
A chord diagramG#G#
'Bout a year has come and gone

And left me standing here
A chord diagramC#C#
Thinking how it could have been
                        A chord diagramG#G#
'Cause still I ain't nowhere

They surely took me for a ride
                A chord diagramC#C#
Trampled on my pride
                          A chord diagramG#G#
But I'll hold my head up high
A chord diagramD#D#                      A chord diagramG#G#  A chord diagramG#7G#7
  Got no more tears to cry

              A chord diagramD#D#
Going back West (Going back West)
       A chord diagramC#C#                    A chord diagramG#G#
Yes I know, I'll make out alright
            A chord diagramD#D#
Going back West (Going back West)
         A chord diagramC#C#                   A chord diagramG#G#
Where my music's playing all night
              A chord diagramC#C#               A chord diagramD#D#
Going back West (Going back West)
                A chord diagramG#G#
Think I'll do alright
