Black Messiah  Kinks



                  [C]Everybody got the [G]right to speak their mind
Bb F f g g# (single notes)
so don't shoot me for saying mine.
[F]Everybody [A7]talking about racial eq[Dm]uality[Dm/C] [Bb]
'cos [F]everybody's [A7]equal in the good Lord's [Dm]eyes.[Dm/C] [Bb]
But [F]if I told you that [C]God was black what would you [Dm]think of that[Dm/C] [Bb]
[F]I bet you wouldn't bel[C]ieve it.[F]
There's a [F6]self made prophet [A7]living right next to [Dm]me[Dm/C] [Bb]
he said the [F]Black Messiah's gonna [A7]come and set the whole world [Dm]free[Dm/C].[Bb]
He [F]looked at me with his [C]evil eye and he [Dm]prophesied[Dm/C] [Bb]
F C F f g g# a
and he really believed it.
He said a [A7]Black Mess[Dm]iah is [A7]gonna set the world on [Dm]fire
and [F]he's no [C]liar, 'cos [C7]he has truly heard the [F]word.
[F]Everybody [A7]talking about racial eq[Dm]uality[Dm/C] [Bb]
but I'm the [F]only honky [A7]living on an all black [Dm]street[Dm/C] [Bb]
they [F]knock me down 'cos [C]they brown and [Dm]I white[Dm/C].[Bb]
[C]Everybody got the [G]right to speak their mind
Bb F f g g#
so don't shoot me for saying mine.
[F]          [A7]                       [Dm]   [Dm/C] [Bb] [F]          [A7]                       [Dm]   [Dm/C] [Bb] [F]Everybody [A7]talking about racial eq[Dm]uality[Dm/C] [Bb]
you hear [F]everybody [A7]talking about equal [Dm]rights.[Dm/C] [Bb]
But [F]white's white, [C]black's black and [Dm]that's that[Dm/C] [Bb]
F C F f g g# a
and that's the way you should leave it.
Don't want no [A7]Black Mess[Dm]iah to [A7]come and set the world on [Dm]fire
a [F]Black Mess[C]iah is [C7]gonna come and [C13]rule the [F]world
[F]Everybody got to [A7]show a little give and [Dm]take[Dm/C] [Bb]
[F]Everybody got to [A7]live with a little less [Dm]hate[Dm/C] [Bb]
[F]Everybody gotta [C]work it out, we gotta [Dm]sort it out.[Dm/C] [Bb]
[C]Everybody got the [G]right to speak their mind
[Bb]so don't shoot me for saying [F]mine.
