And you can [C]go by [G/B]feel, 'stead of [Am]circum-[C]stance,[C7]

I'll show my brotha how to do the thing right,
Lift up your head, and show the world you got pride.
Go for what you want; don't let 'em get in your way,
You can be a winner, if you keep the faith.
Straighten out yourself, and get your mind on track,
Dust off your butt, and get your self-respect back.
You've known me long enough to know that I don't play,
Take it like you want it but you got to keep the[(D)] faith.
