No chord
Standard guitar tuning:
E
A
D
G
B
E
No capo
G 3 5 5 4 3 3 (Morrison plays 3 2 0 0 0 1 but I prefer the bar chord) The chords are repeated non-stop throughout the entire song in the same rhythm:

A Fm G Cm

The hard part is timing the rap, the guitar part is a piece of cake. As I wAalk through the valley of the sFmhadow of death I take a lGook at my life and realCmize there's not much left Cause IA've been blastin' and lauFmghin so long that EGven my ma'ma thinks that my mCmind is gone But I ain't never crossed a man that didn't deserve it Me, be treated like a punk, you know that's unheard of You better watch how you talkin, and where you walkin Or you and your homies might be lined in chalk I really hate to trip, but I gotta loc'- As they grew I see myself in the pistol smoke, fool I'm the kinda G the little homies wanna be like On my knees in the night Sayin' prayers in the street light Been spending most their lives living in the Gangsta's Paradise Been spending most their lives living in the Gangsta's Paradise Keep spending most our lives living in the Gangsta's Paradise Keep spending most our lives living in the Gangsta's Paradise They got the situation, they got me facin' I can't live a normal life, I was raised by the strip So I gotta be down with the hood team Too much television watchin' got me chasin' dreams I'm an educated fool with money on my mind Got my ten in my hand and a gleam in my eye I'm a loc'ed out gangsta, set-trippin banger And my homies is down, so don't arouse my anger, fool Death ain't nuthin but a heart beat away I'm livin life do-or-die-a, what can I say? I'm twenty-three now, but will I live to see twenty-fow'? The way things are goin' I don't know Tell me why are we, so blind to see That the ones we hurt, are you and me Been spending most their lives living in the Gangsta's Paradise Been spending most their lives living in the Gangsta's Paradise Keep spending most our lives living in the Gangsta's Paradise Keep spending most our lives living in the Gangsta's Paradise Power and the money, money and the power Minute after minute, hour after hour Everybody's runnin, but half of them ain't lookin What's goin on in the kitchen, but I dont know what's cookin They say I got ta learn, but nobody's here to teach me, If they cant understand it, how can they reach me? I guess they can't; I guess they won't I guess they front; that's why I know my life is outta luck, fool! Been spending most their lives living in the Gangsta's Paradise Been spending most their lives living in the Gangsta's Paradise Keep spending most our lives living in the Gangsta's Paradise Keep spending most our lives living in the Gangsta's Paradise Tell me why are we, so blind to see That the ones we hurt, are you and me Tell me why are we, so blind to see That the ones we hurt, are you and me
