    A                   E
Well, once upon a time in Seventeen Seventy-Six
       D                                           A
Thomas Jefferson signed his name on a piece of marijuana
                        E
And this document was a symbol of freedom
       D
And of liberty, at least for the rich white gentry

And time marched along, this plant that I referred to
Has been used for everything from medicine to the American flag
And now it seems to me that somewhere along the way
Things got messed up, yeah, messed up

        E 
For marijuana
                                 A  D  A
A gift of God to my brothers and me
        E
Oh, marijuana
                                       A  D  A
The government wants to test me when I pee

Well, some say a conspiracy, the petrol, chemical and pulp paper
Industries combined to kill the competition
Government hysteria, monopoly
And conflict of interest with total impunity, yeah

So if you don't buy the conspiracy, just look at the reality
That your tax dollars go to spray poison
on the fields of a farmer in South America
And as an added bonus, your neighbour might be the proud recipient
Of that poison weed

        E
Oh, marijuana
                                       A  D  A
The government wants to test me when I pee
        E 
Oh, marijuana
                                 A  D  A
A gift of God to my brothers and me

        E
Oh, marijuana
                                   A  D  A
You can't legislate your own morality
        E
Oh, marijuana
                                       A  D  A
The government wants to test me when I pee

Fmaj7
Free from madness, chronic sadness
                                  Am
What is the half-life of bad propaganda
Fmaj7
The policies fail, denied bail
                                              Am
You made him a demon, now pay for his trip to prison

Hard to promote the status quo
But what is the shelf life of bad legislation
The hypocrite smirks, it's a moral disgrace
                                  D
As he reads from the law that was written
          D/C
About the same time
        D/B                   E
that he had his last original thoughts

Men said he was dying and the nausea and the pain
Left him wasting away and unable to keep a meal down
So he tried everything prescription could obtain
But to no avail, the side effects were worse than the pain

So now he breaks the law to use the one thing that seems
To help him out, but the people say, oh he's just gettin' high
But not to change the subject, but didn't you ever wonder why
Gettin' high's a crime, yeah, a crime

          E 
For marijuana
                                 A  D  A
A gift of God to my brothers and me
          E
Oh, marijuana
                                       A  D  A
The government wants to test me when I pee

          E
Oh, marijuana
                                       A  D  A
The government wants to test me when I pee
          E
Oh, marijuana
                                       A  D  A
The government wants to test me when I pee
