Intro: D, A, G (repeat during 1.2.3.4)

Bm		        A		     G
Pardon me, your epidermis is showing, sir
Bm		        A		     G
I couldnt help but note your shade of melanin
Bm		        A		     G
I tip my hat to the colorful arrangement
Bm		        A		     G
Cause I see the beauty in the tones of our skin
Em
Weve gotta come together
		  A		D
And thank the maker of us all

(chorus)
D				A		G
Were colored people, and we live in a tainted place
D				A		G
Were colored people, and they call us the human race
D			A		G
Weve got a history so full of mistakes
D				A		G
And we are colored people who depend on a holy grace

Bm		        A		     G
A piece of canvas is only the beginning for
Bm		        A		     G
It takes on character with every loving stroke
Bm		        A		     G
This thing of beauty is the passion of an artists heart
Bm		        A		     G
By gods design, we are a skin kaleidoscope
Em
Weve gotta come together,
			A	D
Arent we all human after all?

(repeat chorus)
Bm
Ignorance has wronged some races
Bm
And vengeance is the Lords

Bm
If we aspire to share this space
G                            
Repentance is, Repentance is the cure
(Intro 2x)

Well, just a day in the shoes of a color blind man
Should make it easy for you to see
That these diverse tones do more than cover our bones
As a part of our anatomy

(repeat chorus)

D				A		G		 D, A, G
Were colored people, and they call us the human race
D				A		G		D, A, G
Were colored people, and we all gotta share this space
D				A		G		D, A, G
Were colored people, and we live in a tainted world
D				A		G		D, A, G
Were colored people, every man, woman, boy, and girl
