VERSE 1
Bm       G      Em
Pardon me, your epidermis is showing, sir
Bm         G                  Em            G A
I couldn't help but note your shade of melanin
Bm       G           Em
I tip my hat to the colourful arrangement
Bm              G             Em
Cause I see the beauty in the tones of our skin 

PRE CHORUS
C 
We've gotta come together
              G           D
And thank the Maker of us all 

CHORUS 
D                              A          G
We're coloured people, and we live in a tainted place
D                               A           G
We're coloured people, and they call us the human race
D                       A        G
We've got a history so full of mistakes
D                              A           G
And we are coloured people who depend on a Holy Grace 

INTERLUDE
 A             D             A             D
(1, 1, 1, 1... 2, 2, 2, 2... 3, 3, 3, 3... 4, 4, 4, 4) 

VERSE 2
Bm         G         Em
A piece of canvas is only the beginning for
Bm          G              Em              G A
It takes on character with every loving stroke
Bm            G             Em
This thing of beauty is the passion of an Artist's heart
Bm       G                Em
By God's design, we are a skin kaleidoscope 

PRE CHORUS
C
We've gotta come together,
              G           D 
Aren't we all human after all? 

CHORUS
D                              A          G
We're coloured people, and we live in a tainted place
D                               A           G
We're coloured people, and they call us the human race
D                       A        G
We've got a history so full of mistakes
D                              A           G
And we are coloured people who depend on a Holy Grace 

BRIDGE
Bm                          F# 
Ignorance has wronged some races
Bm                   F#
And vengeance is the Lord's
Bm              F#
If we aspire to share this space
Em
Repentance is the cure
C                 D
Repentance is the cure

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

CHORUS
D                              A          G

We've got a history so full of mistakes
D                              A           G
And we are coloured people who depend on a Holy Grace

We're coloured people, and we all gotta share this space
