Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is the first tab I have ever posted so go easy on it.  It does however sound
a little better than the other version that I found.  Just listen to the song for
the strum pattern.

Intro: G  Bm Em  

G             Bm     
We cry for peace
        Em            Em               
But we live for war
G                   Bm               
We ain’t start the wire taps 
        Em         Em
down in Baltimore 
G                Bm
Sometimes she love me, 
              Em           Em
sometimes she love me not 
  G              Bm
But let check out his eyes, 
  Am             D
in the inner city Chi’ 
G       Bm
Evil lurks... 
Em               Em
in the heavenly disguise 
 G            Bm           Em             Em  
I seen two birds crash into two New York giants
 G            Bm           Em             Em
I wish Katrina spoke French at the quarter to New Orleans 
 
          G                        Bm
But how we smoke French back, seduced the storm (Okay)
          Em                       Em
told this is your death, please don’t rain on my people


 G        Bm          Em        Em
Where’d the hope go, Where’d the hope 
 G        Bm          Em        Em
I see the whole world turn into a warzone
 G        Bm          Em        Em 
Ain’t no love in the city keep your vest on
 G        Bm          Em        Em  ....... (You get the idea by now right?)
Guns ‘n roses welcome to the jungle
On the flip side (ay), she shakin’ her back side 
That’s the only way tuition gon’ come right
He got a crush on Mary Jane 
If you ain’t got five on she ain’t doing her thang 
Slow down, young girl
Keep it real hun, you gotta keep it real hun
Slow down somebody gon’ crash 
Slow down 
young girl 

If you livin in the street
You know your livin free 
Thugs with the heat, are the coldest ones to meet 

We flyin high, but still can’t touch the sky 
Everbody’s a gangsta, but no-body wanna die 
Nuclear testing, replacin’ the SAT’s 
Stem cell research there’s another you another me 
With what goes up, must come down,
 the laws of gravity 
To win at chess, you’ve got to trap the king (Ay) yeahh!!


Where’d the hope go, Where’d the hope
I see the whole world turn into a warzone
Ain’t no love in the city keep your vest on
Guns ‘n roses welcome to the jungle
On the flip side (Ay), 
she shakin her back side
That’s the only way tuition gonna come right
He got a cursh on mary jane 
unless you ain’t got five on she ain’t doing her thang
Slow down, young girl
Keep it real hun, you gotta keep it real hun
Slow down somebody gon’ crash 
Slow down (Ay)
Young girl (Okay)


Where’d the hope go, Where’d the hope
I see the whole world turn into a warzone
Ain’t no love in the city keep your vest on (Ya)
Guns ‘n roses welcome to the jungle (Ay, Ay)
On the flip side she shakin her back side
That’s the only way tuition gonna come right
He got a crush on mary jane
If you ain’t got five on she ain’t doing her thang (haha)
Slow down (Okay)
Young girl
Keep it real hun, you can keep it real hun
Slow down, somebody gon’ crash (You know you need to)
Slow down, young girl (You know you we used to)
Keep it real hun, keep it real hun
Slow down
