[Verse] (0:16)

Fm
The dark brown shades of my skin
Fm
Only add colour to my tears
Bbm                                                     Fm
   That splash against my hollow bones, that rocks my soul
Fm
Looking back over my false dreams, that I once knew
Fm
Wondering why my dreams never came true
Bbm                                Fm
   Somebody tell me, what can I do



[Chrous] (1:07)

Bbm
   Something is holding me back
                  Fm
Is it because I'm black?



[Verse] (1:20)

Fm
In this world of no pity
Fm
I was raised in the ghetto of the city
Bbm
   Momma, she works so hard
                Fm
To earn every penny



[Chorus] (1:46)

Bbm
   Something is holding me back
                  Fm
Is it because I'm black?
Bbm
   Something is holding me back
                           Fm
I wonder, Is it because I'm black?



[Solo] (2:12)

[Verse] (2:38)

Fm
Like a child stealing candy for the first time, and got caught
Fm
Around life's corner somewhere I got lost
Bbm
   Something is holding me back
                   Fm
Is it because I'm black?
Bbm
   Something is holding me back
                    Fm
Is it because I'm black?



[Outro] (3:18)

Bbm
   Somebody please tell me
                  Fm
Is it because I'm black? With my black skin
Bbm
   Somebody, someone...
