[Verse 1]
Bb          F             C             F
 Me and Mr. Washington go forth with no real direction
Bb               F                C             F
 Dreaming of the day we drive our cars into the ocean
Bb           F              C              F
 And all the people looking on will wonder what to say
Bb            F              C                 F
 And live confused about us 'til the day they    do the same
Bb         F        C             F
 And they see while swimming that they are free

 Reach for a solace I find only in my brother sky
Bb            F                C                F
 We are relieved to know that someday this will pass us by
