Song Author Artis Ivey Jr. , Doug Rasheed , Larry Sanders og Stevie Wonder Lyrics by: Artis Ivey Jr. og Doug Rasheed Performer: Coolio Submitted by: cazteclo
[G#]    [Fm]    [G]    [Cm]    
[G#]As I walk through the valley[Fm] of the shadow of death
I take a [G]look at my life and rea[Cm]lize there's nothin' left
Cause [G#]I've been blasting and l[Fm]aughing so long,
That [G]even my mama thinks that [Cm]my mind is gone
But I ain't [G#]never crossed a man that di[Fm]dn't deserve it
Me b[G]e treated like a punk you know that's[Cm] unheard of
Yo[G#]u better watch how you're talkin[Fm]g and where you're walking
Or [G]you and your homies might b[Cm]e lined in chalk
I [G#]really hate to trip but[Fm] I gotta loc
As they [G]croak, I see myself in t[Cm]he pistol smoke, fool
[G#]I'm the kinda G the litt[Fm]le homies wanna be like
On my [G]knees in the night sayin[Cm]g prayers in the streetlight

[G#]Been spendi[Fm]ng most their lives, li[G]ving in the ga[Cm]ngsta's paradise
[G#]Been spending m[Fm]ost their lives, living[G] in the gangst[Cm]a's paradise
[G#]Keep spend[Fm]ing most our lives, liv[G]ing in the gan[Cm]gsta's paradise
[G#]Keep spending [Fm]most our lives, living [G]in the gangsta[Cm]'s paradise

Look [G#]at the situation they g[Fm]ot me facin'
I can't l[Gm]ive a normal life, I was [Cm]raised by the streets
So I g[G#]otta be down with the[Fm] hood team
Too much t[Gm]elevision watching got me [Cm]chasing dreams
I'm an [G#]educated fool with m[Fm]oney on my mind
Got my [Gm]10 in my hand and a g[Cm]leam in my eye
I'm a l[G#]oc'd out gangsta set [Fm]trippin' banger
And my h[Gm]omies is down so don't [Cm]arouse my anger, fool
[G#]Death ain't nothing but a h[Fm]eartbeat away,
I'm [Gm]living life, do or [Cm]die, what can I say
I'm [G#]23 now, but will I live t[Fm]o see 24
The w[Gm]ay things are going I[Cm] don't know

Tell me[G#] why are [Fm]we so b[Gm]lind to [Cm]see   
That the[G#] ones we h[Fm]urt are [Gm]you and m[Cm]e   

[G#]Been spendi[Fm]ng most their lives, li[G]ving in the ga[Cm]ngsta's paradise
[G#]Been spending m[Fm]ost their lives, living[G] in the gangst[Cm]a's paradise
[G#]Keep spend[Fm]ing most our lives, liv[G]ing in the gan[Cm]gsta's paradise
[G#]Keep spending [Fm]most our lives, living [G]in the gangsta[Cm]'s paradise

[G#]Power and the money, [Fm]money and the power
[Gm]Minute after minute, [Cm]hour after hour
[G#]Everybody's running, but[Fm] half of them ain't looking
What's goin[Gm]g on in the kitchen, but I [Cm]don't know what's cookin'
They [G#]say I gotta learn, but nobody[Fm]'s here to teach me
If t[Gm]hey can't understand it, ho[Cm]w can they reach me
I g[G#]uess they can't, I g[Fm]uess they won't
I g[Gm]uess they front, that's why I know my[Cm] life is out of luck, fool

[G#]Been spendi[Fm]ng most their lives, li[G]ving in the ga[Cm]ngsta's paradise
[G#]Been spending m[Fm]ost their lives, living[G] in the gangst[Cm]a's paradise
[G#]Keep spend[Fm]ing most our lives, liv[G]ing in the gan[Cm]gsta's paradise
[G#]Keep spending [Fm]most our lives, living [G]in the gangsta[Cm]'s paradise

Tell me[G#] why are [Fm]we so b[Gm]lind to [Cm]see   
That the[G#] ones we h[Fm]urt are [Gm]you and m[Cm]e   
Tell me[G#] why are [Fm]we so b[Gm]lind to [Cm]see   
That the[G#] ones we h[Fm]urt are [Gm]you and m[Cm]e   


As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I take a look at my life and realize there's nothin' left
Cause I've been blasting and laughing so long,
That even my mama thinks that my mind 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're talking and where you're walking
Or you and your homies might be lined in chalk
I really hate to trip but I gotta loc
As they croak, 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 saying prayers in the streetlight

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

Look at the situation they got me facin'
I can't live a normal life, I was raised by the streets
So I gotta be down with the hood team
Too much television watching got me chasing dreams
I'm an educated fool with money on my mind
Got my 10 in my hand and a gleam in my eye
I'm a loc'd out gangsta set trippin' banger
And my homies is down so don't arouse my anger, fool
Death ain't nothing but a heartbeat away,
I'm living life, do or die, what can I say
I'm 23 now, but will I live to see 24
The way things are going 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 running, but half of them ain't looking
What's going on in the kitchen, but I don't know what's cookin'
They say I gotta learn, but nobody's here to teach me
If they can't 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 out of 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
