Written by Lin-Manuel Miranda for the 2015 musical Broadway show "Hamilton".

It's a nice tune to play with, I hope you enjoy the letter notes below :)

Please forgive any inaccuracies with the end chorus, both characters were singing at the same time so I tried to capture the domiant melody - let me know if you think it could be improved!
