VERSE 1
                       Am                     F
She was walking in the street, looked up and noticed
       G                       G/B
He was nameless, he was homeless
                 Am                     F
She asked him his name and told him what hers was
              G
He gave her a story 'bout life
                    Am                    F
With a glint in his eye and a corner of a smile
           G               C       G/B
One conversation, a simple moment
                Am              F
The things that change us if we notice
        G
When we look up sometimes
 
 
PRE CHORUS
          Am            F
They said I would never make it
          G                  C     G/B
But I was built to break the mold
         Am                   F             G
The only dream that I've been chasing is my own
 
 
CHORUS
                         Am                      F
So I sing a song for the hustlers trading at the bus stop
       G                    C        G/B
Single mothers waiting on a check to come
      Am                F
Young teachers, student doctors
            G                             C      G/B
Sons on the front line knowing they don't get to run
Am                   F
This goes out to the Underdog
G                  C        G/B
Keep on keeping at what you love
       Am                F
You'll find that someday soon enough
         G
You will rise up, rise up, yeah
 
 
POST CHORUS
Am   F    G   C  G/B
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Am   F    G   C  G/B
Ooh, ooh, ooh
 
 
VERSE 2
                  Am               F
She's riding in a taxi back to the kitchen
               G                                      G/B
Talking to the driver 'bout his wife and his children
                  Am                            F
On the run from a country where they put you in prison
            G
For being a woman and speaking your mind
                  Am                        F
She looked in his eyes in the mirror and he smiled
           G               C       G/B
One conversation, a single moment
                Am              F
The things that change us if we notice
        G
When we look up sometimes
 
 
PRE CHORUS

The only dream that I've been chasing is my own
