Intro: FA#7 SIm How does a bastard, orphan, son of a whore FA#7 And a Scotsman, dropped in the middle SOL of a forgotten spot In the Caribbean by providence impoverished RE FA#7/LA# In squalor, grow up to be a hero and a scholar? SIm The ten-dollar founding father without a father FA#7 Got a lot farther by working a lot harder SOL By being a lot smarter By being a self-starter RE FA#7/LA# By fourteen, they placed him in charge of a trading charter SIm And every day while slaves were being FA#7 slaughtered and carted away Across the waves, he struggled and kept his guard up SOL Inside, he was longing for something to be a part of RE The brother was ready to beg, FA#7/LA# steal, borrow, or barter SIm Then a hurricane came, and devastation reigned FA#7 Our man saw his future drip, dripping down the drain SOL Put a pencil to his temple, connected it to his brain RE And he wrote his first refrain, FA#7 a testament to his pain SIm Well, the word got around, they said, this kid is insane, man FA#7 Took up a collection just to send him to the mainland SOL Get your education, don't forget from whence you came RE FA#7/LA# And the world is gonna know your name What's your name, man? SIm Alexander Hamilton FA#7 My name is Alexander Hamilton SOL And there's a million things I haven't done RE FA#7 But just you wait, just you wait SIm When he was ten his father split, full of it, debt-ridden FA#7 Two years later, see Alex and his mother bed-ridden SOL Half-dead sittin' in their own sick, the scent thick And Alex got better but his mother went quick SIm Moved in with a cousin, the cousin committed suicide FA#7 Left him with nothin' but ruined pride, something new inside SOL A voice saying, "Alex, you gotta fend for yourself" RE He started retreatin' and readin' FA#7/LA# every treatise on the shelf SIm There would have been nothin' left to do for someone less astute FA# He woulda been dead or destitute without a cent of restitution SOL Started workin', clerkin' for his late mother's landlord RE Tradin' sugar cane and rum FA#7/LA# and all the things he can't afford SIm Scammin' for every book he can get his hands on FA# Plannin' for the future see him now as he stands on SOL The bow of a ship headed for the new land RE FA#7/LA# In New York you can be a new man SIm In New York you can be a new man (just you wait) SOL7 In New York you can be a new man (just you wait) MIm9 In New York you can be a new man FA#7 In New York, New York Just you wait SIm Alexander Hamilton Alexander Hamilton SOL7 We are waiting in the wings for you Waiting in the wings for you MIm7/9 You could never back down FA#7 You never learned to take your time SIm Oh, Alexander Hamilton Alexander Hamilton SOL7 When America sings for you MIm Will they know what you overcame? RE6 MIm6+ Will they know you rewrote your game? SIm SOL6 RE/LA FA#7/LA# The world will never be the same, oh SIm The ship is in the harbor now DO#m7/4 See if you can spot him (just you wait) RE6 MIm Another immigrant comin' up from the bottom (just you wait) SOL DO#m7/5- His enemies destroyed his rep America forgot him FA#4 FA# We, fought with him FA#4 FA# Me, I died for him SIm/FA# Me, I died for him FA#7 Me, I loved him LA#dim And me, I'm the damn fool that shot him (shot him, shot him) SOL6 RE There's a million things I haven't done FA#7/4 FA#7 But just you wait What's your name, man? SIm Alexander Hamilton

Alexander Hamilton: Video

Alexander Hamilton è un brano che fa parte del musical Hamilton, scritto interamente dal cantautore di New York Lin-Manuel Miranda. Debuttato il 20 gennaio 2015 a New York, racconta la vita di Alexander Hamilton, Padre fondatore degli Stati Uniti e primo Segretario del Tesoro per la nazione nascente. La canzone è il brano d'apertura dell'intero spettacolo e presenta al pubblico i primi vent'anni della sua vita. Gioventù fatta di povertà, vessazione ed un terribile uragano che distrusse la sua città natale.
