*the star indicates a kinda tricky part to play. I dunno if I tabbed it out right so i'll
write it here. hold your fingers like you're playing Dm, quickly strum thru the notes
normally, hammer highE 3rd fret with your pinkie, then quickly pulloff your index finger
from highE 1st fret to an open highE. Then you put your index finger hard on where it just
was and strum Dm once again. The last strum is actually the beginning of the next series.

[Dsus4]                           [Fmaj7]                [C] 
Seen a rich man beg seen a good man sin seen a tough man cry
[Dsus4]                     [Fmaj7]                   [C]

[Dsus4]                                      [Fmaj7] 
Licked the silver spoon drank from the golden cup smoked the finest creme[C]
[Dsus4]                                       [Fmaj7] 
Stroked the daddies' dimes atleast a couple of times before I broke their hearts[C]

...:::Verse 3:::...
[Dm]                [Fmaj7]                [C] 
I knew this kid named Max used to get fat stacks on the corner with drugs[Dm*]
[Dm]                [Fmaj7]                [C]

Late one night there was a big gun fight and max lost his head[Dm*]
[Dm]          [Fmaj7]               [C]             [Dm*]
