[INTRO] G Em D
[CHORUS]
G               D             Em               C
I wish I was strong enough to lift not one but both of us
    G             D                  Em               C
Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us

[VERSE]
    G
Uh, ever thought about losing it
                                    Em
When your money's all gone and you lose your whip
Em
You might lose your grip when the landlord tell ya that you're due for rent
                                 G
And the grass so green on the other side
G
Make a nigga wanna run straight through the fence
G                          Em
Open up the fridge 'bout twenty times
Em
But still can't find no food in it
Em
That's foolishness
G
And sometimes I wonder, why we care so much about the way we look.
G        Em
And the way we talk and the way we act and 
Em
The clothes we bought, how much that cost.
G
Does it even really matter?
G
Cause if life is an up hill battle
        Em
We all tryna climb with the same ol' ladder
Em
In the same boat, with the same ol' paddle
        G
Why so shallow? I'm just asking
G
What's the pattern to the madness
      Em
Everybody ain't a number one draft pick
Em
Most of us ain't Hollywood actors


            G
But if it's all for one, and one for all
G
Then maybe one day, we all can ball
Em
Do it one time for the underdogs
Em
Sincerely yours, from one of y'all

[CHORUS]
G               D             Em               C
I wish I was strong enough to lift not one but both of us
    G             D                  Em               C
Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us

[VERSE]
G
I can feel your pain, I can feel your struggle
                Em
You just wanna live, but everything so low
Em
That you could drown in a puddle
               G
That's why I gotta hold us up, yeah hold us up
G
For all the times no one's ever spoke for us
    Em
To every single time that they play this song
Em
You can say that that's what Bobby Ray wrote for us
            G
When the tides get too high
G
And the sea up underneath get so deep
                          Em
And you feel like you're just another person
Em
Getting lost in the crowd, way up high in the nosebleeds
                  G
Uh, because we've both been there, yeah, both of us
G
But we still stand tall with our shoulders up
     Em
And even though we always against the odds
Em
These are the things that've molded us
       G
And if life hadn't chosen us
G
Sometimes I wonder where I would've wound up
                           D
Cause if it was up to me, I'd make a new blueprint
D
Than build it from the ground up, hey
              Em
But if it's all for one, and one for all
Em
Then maybe one day, we all can ball
C
Do it one time for the underdogs
C
From Bobby Ray, to all of y'all


[CHORUS]
G               D             Em               C
I wish I was strong enough to lift not one but both of us
    G             D                  Em               C
Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us
