From the musical, Hairspray


G   C/G   Dm/G   C/G  
G   C/G   G   D    C/D   

          G            B+       B7  
There's a light in the darkness
           Em                   Cm
Though the night is black as my skin
          G             B+#9   Em    G7/D        F#7(#9)  
There's a light burning bright showing me the way
    B7(#5)            Em   C/D  
But I know where I've been

G                    B+
There's a cry in the distance
       Em                             Cm   Dm/C    Cm   
It's a voice that comes from deep within
          G          B+#9  
There's a cry asking why
           Em     G7/D  C     F#7(#9)  
I pray the answer's up ahead,
       B7(#5)            Em
'cause I know where I've been

          Am7             Em     
There's a road we've been trav'lin'
        Am7         Em
Lost so many on the way
        Bm             C7
But the riches will be plenty
         C#dim7     A#dim7          Bsus4  B  D    C/D   
With the price, the price we had to pay

          G            B+   B7  
There's a dream in the future
          Em                      Cm Dm/C  Cm         
There's a struggle we have yet to win
            G/D         B7#9/D#  
And there's pride in my heart
       Em   G7/D        C      G/B   Am7  
'cause I know where I'm going, yes I do
    C/D               G
And I know where I've been, yeah

(There's a road) 
There's a road
(We must travel)
We must travel
(There's a promise)
There's a promise
(We must make)
We must make
(Cause the riches) 
Cause the riches
(Will be plenty)
Will be plenty
(Worth the risk,)
Worth the risk
                        Bsus4  B    D    D#   
And the chances that we take

          G#           C+   C  
There's a dream in the future
          Fm                      C#m D#m/C#  C#m   
There's a struggle we have yet to win
         G#/D#        C7(#5)/E  
Use that pride in our hearts
   Fm              C#     G7  
To lift us up to tomorrow
                   C7+              Fm  
'cause just to sit still would be a sin
              Fm/D#                 Cm7  A#m7
(I know it, I know it, I know where I'm goin')
           C#/D#                   G#  
Lord knows I know where I've been
  C+           C#  
Oh, when we win
I'll give thanks to my God
         F#(add2)        G#
'cause I know where I've been
