VERSE1
                   C#maj7 Aadd9                       Badd11
I was born black and free,     I was born in the cold
                C#maj7      Aadd9                  Badd11
You see cold was home to me,      until I was told
                     C#maj7  Aadd9                               Badd11
I was really from the South,       so I travelled closer to the sun
         Aadd9                                          Badd11
But you see, flesh burning heat got me crossing the sea
           C#maj7
Back to the cold again
         F#m G#m A B
So here I am,      here I am

CHORUS
C#9sus4-C#m  Aadd9                   Badd11              C#9sus4 = x44444 
    I'm        a stranger, anywhere I run to
    C#maj7 Aadd9
Yes I am a stranger
                Badd11          E        Aadd2 (Aadd2+ Aadd2++ Aadd2+)
And I just can't seem to find a race I could claim
             G#               Aadd9
The roots to my name, but who I am                          Add2 = 507600
    Badd11       C#maj7  Aadd9  Badd11                     Add2+ = 507605
Is a man of this world                                    Add2++ = 507607

C#maj7  Aadd9  Aadd9-G#m-F#m11

VERSE2 (same chords as before)
This is my second shot, winter's smiling at me
I'm taking this shot to be all I can be
So the next place I stop will be the land of the free
A place where a million of colours and dreams dwell
Sounds like a place to me, where someone might understand
Just who I am, who I am

CHORUS (same as before until last chord)
I'm a stranger, anywhere I run to
Yes I am a stranger
And I just can't seem to find a race I could claim
The roots to my name, but who I am
   Badd11        Aadd2   
Is a man of this world


BRIDGE
                      C#maj7
Now there's this fuss about colour
Aadd2                         C#maj7                       B6/D# = x64444
     And everybody needs to belong                         B11#9 = 767700
Aadd2                    C#m-B6/D#-B11#9-E7                   E7 = 076707
  So take a minute to consider my perspective
         Aadd9                        G#
You see, black kicked me out once and white took me in
    Aadd9                              G#
But white looked at me once and nearly spat at my skin
F#m                                                    G#
   I'm so confused, I'm so confused about who I should hate
                                  B
I figure I'll just love them all

CHORUS x3 (same chords as first chorus, repeat)
I'm a stranger, anywhere I run to
Yes I am a stranger
And I just can't seem to find a race I could claim
The roots to my name, but who I am
Is a man of this world
