[Verse 1]
A             G
April 26th, 1992
             A                              G
There was a riot on the streets, tell me, where were you?
       A                                    G
While you were sitting home, watching your TV
             A                    G
While I was participatin' in some anarchy
A                             G
First spot we hit it was my liquor store
     A                          G
I finally got all that alcohol I can't afford
      A                    G
With red lights flashing, time to retire
            D5                                D5
And then we turned that liquor store into a structure fire

A                            G
Next stop we hit it was the music shop
        A                            G
It only took one brick to make that window drop
A                        G
Finally, we got our own P.A
               D5                                A               G
Where do you think I got this guitar that you're hearing today? Hey
A                G
Homicide, never doin' no time

[Verse 2]
          A                            G
When we returned to the pad to unload everything
   A                                 G
It dawned on me that I need new home furnishings
    A                               G
So, once again, we filled the van until it was full
D5                                               A      G
Since that day, my living room's been much more comfortable
A                                       G
'Cause everybody in the hood has had it up to here
             A                              G
It's getting hotter, and hotter and harder, each and every year
     A                                G
Some kids went in a store with their mother
  A                                  G
I saw her when she came out, she was getting some Pampers
They said it was for the black man
                  A                   G
They said it was for the Mexican, and not for the white man
           D5                             A
But if you look at the street, it wasn't about Rodney King
         G                              D
And this fucked up situation, and these fucked up police
      A                   G
It's about coming up and staying on top
                D        A              G
And screaming, "187 on a motherfuckin' cop"
D                                  A
It's not in the paper, it's on the wall
         G      D5             A
National Guard, Smoke from all around

[Verse 3]
D5            A
Let it burn, wanna let it burn

Wanna, wanna let it burn
