Dear Mr President  Pink

[G]Dear Mr. President
[D-F#]Come take a walk with me[Em7] [D-F#]
[G]Let's pretend we're just two people and
[D-F#]You're not better than me
I'd like to[Em7] ask you some questions if we can speak hones[D-F#]tly            
[C]What do you feel[Em] when you[Am] see all the ho[G]meless on the street[D]
[C]Who do you pray [Em]for at night[Am] before you [G]go to sleep[D]
[C]What do you feel [Em]when you look[Am] in the mi[D]rror
Are you [Cadd9]proud
How do you sleep[G] while the rest [D]of us cry       [Am] [C]
How do you dream[G] when a mother h[D]as no chance to [Am]say goodbye     [Em7]
How do you walk [G]with your head h[D]eld high     [C]
Can you even loo[Em7]k me in[D] the eye        [C]      
And tell me why [G]
Dear Mr. President
Were you a lonely boy
Are you a lonely boy
Are you a lonely boy
How can you say
No child is left behind
We're not dumb and we're not blind
They're all sitting in your cells
While you pave the road to hell

[C]What kind of father[Em7] would take his[Am] own daughter's rights away [D]
[C]And what kind of father[Em7] might hate his [Am]own daughter if she were gay[D]
[C]I can only imagi[Em7]]ne what [Am]the firs[G]t lady has to say[D]
You've come a lo[Em7]ng way from whiskey and cocaine   [Am]

How do you sleep while the rest of us cry
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye
How do you walk with your head held high
Can you even look me in the eye

[C#m]Let me tell you bout hard work
Minimum wage [E]with a baby on the way
Let me tell you bout har[C#m]d work

Rebuilding your house af[E]ter the bombs took them away
Let me tell you bout har[C#m]d work
Building a bed o[E]ut of a cardboard box
Let me tell you bout har[C#m]d work
[E]Hard work
[G]Hard work
[E]You don't know nothing bout hard[C#m] work
[E]Hard work
[G]Hard work
[A]How do you sleep at night  [D]
[A]How do you walk with your head h[D]eld high
[C#m]Dear Mr. President
[E]You'd never take a walk with me         [D]
Would you       [A]
