     [G]    [Bm]    [Em]    [C]          [Am]    [C]    [G] [Cm] 

[G]It was a creed w[Bm]ritten into the founding[Em] documents

th[C]at declared the [G]destiny of a nation.  [B]
Yes we c[Em]an.[C]             [C]
[G]It was whispered by slaves
and [Bm]abolitionists as they blazed a trail toward [Em]freedom.[C]
[C]Yes we can; Yes we can. [G]
[Bm]It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distan[Em]t shores
and pion[G]eers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness[Bm].(y[Em]eah[C])
Yes we can.

[G]It was the call of workers who organized[Bm];

women who reached for the ballot[Em]s;
a President who [C]chose the moon as our new frontier;and a K[G]ing[Bm]   [Em]   [C]  [G]
who t[Bm]ook us to the mountaintop   [E]

and p[C]ointed the way to the Promised Land. [G]

[Bm]Yes we can [E]Yes we can   [C]
[G]Yes we can
to justice and equality. (Yeah-e-ah)

Yes we can

to opportunity and prosperity. (Yeah)

Yes we can

heal this nation.

Yes we can

repair this world.

Yes we can. 3x

We know the battle ahead will be long,
but always remember that no matter what obstacles stand in our way,
nothing can stand in the way
of the power of millions of voices calling for change.  [CCCC]

yes we can, yes we can

Bridge (3:39)
[G]We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics...
they will only grow louder and more dissonant ...........
We've been asked to pause for a reality [G]check.
We've been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope.(4:04)

But in the unlikely story that is [Cm]A-merica,(4:10)
there has never been anything .....false about hope.(4:21)

End Bridge

Yes we can

Yes we can (4:35)
[G]Now the hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling school in Dillon
are the same as the dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of LA;
we will remember that there is something happening in America;
and we are not as divided
as our politics suggests;
that we are one people; we are one nation here;
and together, we will begin the next chapter in America,
the American story with three words that will ring from coast to coast;
from sea to shining sea --
Yes. We. Can.
