Guitar chords with lyrics

Verse:
 Bm
How does a bastard orphan son of a whore and a

 F#
Scotsman dropped in the middle of a

      G
Forgotten spot in the Caribbean by providence

          D
Impoverished in squalor

        F#
Grow up to be a hero and a scholar

   Bm
The ten-dollar founding father without a father

    F#
Got a lot farther by working a lot harder

       G
By being a lot smarter


By being a self-starter
    D              F#
By fourteen they placed him in charge of a trading charter


   Bm
And every day while slaves were being slaughtered and carted

 F#
Away across the waves he struggled and kept his guard up

  G
Inside he was longing for something to be a part of

   D              F#
The brother was ready to beg steal borrow or barter


     Bm
Then a hurricane came and devastation reigned

   F#
Our man saw his future drip dripping down the drain

    G
Put a pencil to his temple connected it to his brain

     D                 F#
And he wrote his first refrain a testament to his pain


      Bm
Well the word got around they said This kid is insane man

 F#
Took up a collection just to send him to the mainland

 G
Get your education don't forget from whence you came

      D            F#
And the world is gonna know your name What's your name man


 Bm
Alexander Hamilton

       F#
My name is Alexander Hamilton

        G
And there's a million things I haven't done

        D        F#
But just you wait just you wait


       Bm
When he was ten his father split full of it debt-ridden

   F#                           G
Two years later see Alex and his mother bed-ridden half-dead


Sittin' in their own sick the scent thick


n/a
And Alex got better but his mother went quick


 Bm
Moved in with a cousin the cousin committed suicide

 F#
Left him with nothin' but ruined pride something new inside

  G
A voice saying Alex you gotta fend for yourself


        D              F#
He started retreatin' and readin' every treatise on the shelf


    Bm
There would have been nothing left to do


For someone less astute he woulda been
 F#
Dead or destitute without a sense of restitution

     G
Started workin' clerkin' for his late mother's landlord

 D                F#
Tradin' sugar cane and rum and all the things he can't afford

 Bm
Scammin' for every book he can get his hands on

 F#
Plannin' for the future see him now as he stands on

   G
The bow of a ship headed for a new land

  D         F#
In New York you can be a new man


  Bm
In New York you can be a new man

  F#
In New York you can be a new man

  Bm
In New York you can be a new man


  F#
In New York


Just you wait


 Bm
Alexander Hamilton

     G7
We are waiting in the wings for you

      Em
You could never back down

                 F#
You never learned to take your time

   Bm
Oh Alexander Hamilton

    G7
When America sings for you

      Em
Will they know what you overcame

      D           Em
Will they know you rewrote the game

   Bm      G   D    F#
The world will never be the same oh


   Bm
The ship is in the harbor now


See if you can spot him
 D
Another immigrant

   Em
Comin' up from the bottom

   Em
His enemies destroyed his rep


America forgot him

  F#
We fought with him

  F#
Me I died for him

  F#
Me I trusted him

  Em
Me I loved him


  Bm         F#
And me I'm the damn fool that shot him


     Em                D
There's a million things I haven't done

       F#
But just you wait



What's your name man


 Bm
Alexander Hamilton
