     F/C                            Am/C
As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
         E/B                     Am/C
I take a look at my life and realize there's nothin' left
      F/C                    Am/C
Cause I've been blasting and laughing so long,
     E/B                         Am/C
That even my mama thinks that my mind is gone
            F/C                      Am/C
But I ain't never crossed a man that didn't deserve it
      E/B                     Am/C
Me be treated like a punk you know that's unheard of
    F/C                           Am/C
You better watch how you're talking and where you're walking
   E/B                          Am/C
Or you and your homies might be lined in chalk
  F/C                       Am/C
I really hate to trip but I gotta loc
        E/B                        Am/C
As they croak, I see myself in the pistol smoke, fool
F/C                        Am/C
I'm the kinda G the little homies wanna be like
      E/B                       Am/C
On my knees in the night saying prayers in the streetlight

F/C           Am/C                     E/B              Am/C
Been spending most their lives, living in the gangsta's paradise
F/C           Am/C                     E/B              Am/C
Been spending most their lives, living in the gangsta's paradise
F/C           Am/C                   E/B              Am/C
Keep spending most our lives, living in the gangsta's paradise
F/C           Am/C                   E/B              Am/C

     F/C                   Am/C
Look at the situation they got me facin'
        E/B                       Am/C
I can't live a normal life, I was raised by the streets
     F/C                    Am/C
So I gotta be down with the hood team
         E/B                        Am/C
Too much television watching got me chasing dreams
       F/C                Am/C
I'm an educated fool with money on my mind
       E/B                 Am/C
Got my 10 in my hand and a gleam in my eye
      F/C                 Am/C
I'm a loc'd out gangsta set trippin' banger
       E/B                     Am/C
And my homies is down so don't arouse my anger, fool
F/C                       Am/C
Death ain't nothing but a heartbeat away,
           E/B              Am/C
I'm living life, do or die, what can I say
    F/C                Am/C
I'm 23 now, but will I live to see 24
    E/B                          Am/C
The way things are going I don't know

        F/C     Am/C  E/B      Am/C
Tell me why are we so blind to see
         F/C     Am/C     E/B     Am/C
That the ones we hurt are you and me

F/C                  Am/C

E/B                  Am/C
Minute after minute, hour after hour
F/C                      Am/C
Everybody's running, but half of them ain't looking
             E/B                    Am/C
What's going on in the kitchen, but I don't know what's cookin'
     F/C                      Am/C
They say I gotta learn, but nobody's here to teach me
   E/B                       Am/C
If they can't understand it, how can they reach me
F/C                   Am/C
I guess they can't, I guess they won't
             E/B                         Am/C
I guess they front, that's why I know my life is out of luck, fool
