[Verse 1]

A              F#m7/C#
Woke up quick, at about noon
     Bm7/D                       E7/B
Just thought that I had to be in Compton soon
        A                    A6/F
I gotta get drunk, ?fore the day begins
          A6/F#         A6/E     D2
Before my mother starts bitchin' about my friends

[Verse 2]
(repeat verse 1 chords)

About to go and damn near went blind,
Young niggas on the path throwin' up gang sings
I went in the house to get the clip
With my mack 10, on the side of my hip

[Verse 3]
(repeat verse 1 chords)

I bailed outside and I pointed my weapon
And just as I thought, the fools kept steppin'
I jumped in the fro', hit the juice on my ride
I got front and back. side to side

[Verse 4]
(repeat verse 1 chords)

Then I let the Alpine play
I was pumpin' new shit by NWA
It was gangsta gangsta at the top of the list
Then I played my own shit it went somethin' like this

[Verse 5]
(repeat verse 1 chords)

(use chorus chords for this verse only)

Crusin' down the street in my six fo'
Jockin' the bitches, slappin' the ho's
I went to the park to get the scoop
Knuckleheads out there, cold shootin' some hoop

[Verse 6]
(repeat verse 1 chords)

a car pulls up, who can it be
It's a fresh elcamino, rollin' kilo-G
He rolls down the window and starts to say
It's all about makin' that G T A


         A            F#m7/C#         Bm7/D
Cuz' the boyz in the ?hood are always hard
                  E7/B                       A
Come talkin' that trash, and we'll pull your card
                   F#m7/C#         Bm7/D
Knowin' nothin' in life, but to be legit
               E7/B             A    (D/F#, A, E7)
Don't quote me boy I ain't said shit

[Verse 7]
(repeat verse 1 chords)

Bored as hell, and I wanna' to get ill
So I go to a place where my home boys chill
Fellas out there tryin' to make that dolla'
I pulled up in the six four impalla

[Verse 8]
(repeat verse 1 chords)

I'm greeted with a forty and I start drinkin'
And from the eight ball my breath starts stinkin'
I gotta get my girl to rock that body
before I left, I hit the Bacardi

[Verse 9]
(repeat verse 1 chords)

Pull to the house, get her outta the pad
And the bitch said somethin' to make mad,
She said somethin' that, I couldn't believe
So I grabbed the stupid bitch by her nappy ass weave

[Verse 10]
(repeat verse 1 chords)

Started talkin' shit, wouldn't you know
I reached back like a pimp and I slapped the ho'
and her father stood up, and started to shout
So I threw a right cross and knocked his ole' ass out


Cuz the boys in the hood are always hard
Come talkin' that trash and we'll pull your card
Knowin' nothin' in life, but to be legit
Don't quote me boy I ain't said shit


Punk ass trippin' in the dead of night...
Homey scored a ki, he's gonna fly, punk ass fly

CHORDS FOR RHYTHM SECTION (not the "intro riff")
    A  F#m7/C#  Bm7/D  E7/B  A6/F  A6/F#  A6/E  D2  E7

When transitioning from the A to the F#m7/C#, don't just add your
ring finger onto the A, instead, bar all the strings.  Then when you
have to play the Bm7/D, your first finger is already barred and does
not have to move.

When you play the Bm7/D, if the "G" string is a bit muted, that's o.k.,
the other notes do the work of the chord.

The chords are played softly and can be slopped together for effect.
For the verse chords, hit the lowest note twice then hit the chord
once (all down strokes), with a "shuffle" feel.  The exception is
these two chords (A6/F# -- A6/E) for these chords, hit the lowest
note once and strum the chord once.  Thus, this rhythm is similar to
the Incubus "Drive" song, where you can hit the base notes while your
fingers take some time to get into position on the chords.

Note: Dynamite Hack does some more intricate work on verse 5.
However, if you use the chorus chords it sounds fine.

Note: The chorus chord progression is just the first 4 chords of the
verse repeated twice.
