How To Play

Capo:1st fret

INTRO
 
C/G  Am (x2)
 
Verse 1:
 
       C        G/B           Am     C     C7
If you call out loud, will it get in-side?
            F                 C               Dm      F/G
Through the heart of your sur-render; to your alibis?
            C       G/B             Am    C     C7
And you can say the words, like you under-stand,
         F             C                     Eb            Dm  F/G
But, the power's in be-lieving; so give your-self a chance.
 
Bridge 1:
 
              F                          Bb  F/G
'Cos you can; climb the highest mountain,
C                      Gm7  F/A
 Swim the deepest sea, hee.
F                     C                    D7           F/G   (n.C)
 All you need, is the will to win it and a, little self-esteem.
 
Chorus 1:
 
            Bb    F      C
So keep the faith; don't let nobody turn you 'round.
Bb                        F
 You gotta know when it's good to go;
            C
To get your dreams up off the ground.
 
         Bb           F                  Ab               C/G
Keep the faith, baby, yeah, because it's just a matter of time,
            Eb13
Before your confidence will win out.
 
   Bb            F               Gm7       C/G  F
Be-lieve in your-self, no matter what it's gon' take,
Bb            F               F/G (n.C)       C     F/C  C
 You can be a winner, but you got to keep the faith.
F/C            C                   F/C  C
 Gon' keep it, brother, you got it.
 
Verse 2:
 
C             G/B                      Am       C    C7
 And when you think of trust, don't it lead you home,
     F                   C                     Dm         F/G
To a place that you only dream of, when you're all alone?
            C     G/B             Am     C      C7
And you can go by feel, 'stead of circum-stance,
        F             C                     Eb            Dm
But the power's in be-lieving, so give your-self a chance.
F/G
 I know that you can...
 
Bridge 2:
 
F                      Bb  F/G
 Sail across the water,
C                      Gm7  F/A
 Float across the sky, high.
F                  C                         D7          F/G (n.C)
 Any road that you take, will get you there; if you only try.
 
Chorus 2:
 
            Bb    F          C
So keep the faith, ow! Don't let nobody take you down, brother,
Bb              F
 Just keep your eyes on the prize;
         C (n.C)
And your feet, flat on the ground.
 
         Bb           F                  Ab               C/G
Keep the faith, baby, yeah, because it's just a matter of time,
            Eb13
Before your confidence will win out.
 
Bb         F              Gm7    C/G   F
 I told my brother how to do the thing right,
Bb            F                  Gm7       C/G F
 Lift up your head, and show the world you got pride.
Bb               F                    Gm7    C/G  F
 Go for what you want; don't let them get in your way,
Bb            F               F/G (n.C)       C     F/C  C, F/C  C
 You can be a winner, but you got to keep the faith.
    F/C    C
You got it.
 
Middle 8:
 
C                        G      E7    Am
 I know that keepin' the faith, means never giving up on love,
        Ab                             F/G             G/A
But the power that love has to make it right; makes it, makes it right.
 
*KEY CHANGE*

 You gotta know when it's good to go;
            D (n.C)
To get your dreams, up off the ground.
 
         Cadd9        G/B                Bb               D
Keep the faith, baby, yeah, because it's just a matter of time,
            F13
Before your confidence will win out.

Better stand up and act like you wanna do right,
C               G/B           Am7          G/B
 Don't play the fool, for the rest of your life.

 Work on it brother, and you'll make it some-day,
C                G/B                 Am7     G/B
 Go for what you want, and don't for-get the faith.
 
C             G/B               Am7         G/B
 Look at your-self and what you doin' right now,
C             G/B             Am7            G/B
 Stand back a minute, just to check yourself out.
C                    G/B                  Am7         G/B

 Gon' keep it brother; you got to keep the faith, yeah, keep the faith.
Gon' keep it sister; you got to keep the faith, now, now.
I'll show my brother 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,
                                                (D)
Take it like you want it but you got to keep the faith.
