Alicia Keys - Underdog: guitar chords

                         Cm                   G#
She was walking in the street, looked up and noticed
        A#
He was nameless, he was homeless
                  Cm                      G#
She asked him his name and told him what hers was
               A#
He gave her a story 'bout life
                    Cm                      G#
With a glint in his eye and a corner of a smile
           A#               D#
One conversation, a simple moment
                 Cm              G#
The things that change us if we notice
         A#
When we look up sometimes

          Cm            G#
They said I would never make it
          A#                  D#
But I was built to break the mold
          Cm                   G#           A#
The only dream that I've been chasing is my own

Chorus:
                         Cm                      G#
So I sing a song for the hustlers trading at the bus
stop
        A#                   D#       A#/D
Single mothers waiting on a check to come
       Cm                G#
Young teachers, student doctors
             A#                           D#    A#/D
Sons on the front line knowing they don't get to run
Cm                   G#
This goes out to the Underdog
A#                  D#       A#/D
Keep on keeping at what you love
       Cm                G#
You'll find that someday soon enough
          A#
You will rise up, rise up, yeah

She's riding in a taxi back to the kitchen
Talking to the driver 'bout his wife and his
children
On the run from a country where they put you
in prison
For being a woman and speaking your mind
She looked in his eyes in the mirror and he smiled
One conversation, a single moment
The things that change us if we notice
When we look up sometimes

They said I would never make it
But I was built to break the mold
The only dream that I've been chasing is my own

Chorus:
So I sing a song for the hustlers trading at
the bus stop
Single mothers waiting on a check to come
Young teachers, student doctors
Sons on the front line knowing they don't
get to run
This goes out to the underdog
Keep on keeping at what you love
You'll find that someday soon enough
You will rise up, rise up, yeah

Everybody rise up
You gonna rise up, ayy

Chorus:
So I sing a song for the hustlers trading
at the bus stop
Single mothers waiting on a check to come
(Say you're gonna make it)
Young teachers, student doctors (Yeah)
Sons on the front line knowing they don't
get to run
This goes out to the underdog
Keep on keeping at what you love
You'll find that someday soon enough
You will rise up, rise up, yeah
