Intro - x2 -: F - G - C - Am

- Am  -     F        G
I used to rule the world
           C                    Am
Seas would rise when I gave the word
                     F     G
Now in the morning I sleep alone
          C                 Am
Sweep the streets I used to own

F - G - C - Am    x2

- Am  -     F         G
I used to roll the dice
          C                 Am
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
              F            G
Listen as the crowd would sing:
          C                 Am
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"


- Am  -        F        G
One minute I held the key
         C                    Am
Next the walls were closed on me
                          F        G
And I discovered that my castles stand
     C                    Am
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

  F              G
I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
C             Am
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
F                G
Be my mirror, my sword, and shield
   C                 Am
My missionaries in a foreign field
F                 G
For some reason I can't explain
C                     Am              F      G
Once you go there was never, never an honest word
         Bm               Am
That was when I ruled the world

F - G - C - Am    x2

- Am  -                 F     G
It was the wicked and wild wind
              C               Am
Blew down the doors to let me in.
                          F        G
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
       C                    Am
People couldn't believe what I'd become

- Am  -    F      G
Revolutionaries wait
        C               Am
For my head on a silver plate
                   F      G
Just a puppet on a lonely string
   C                         Am
Oh who would ever want to be king?


  F              G
I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
C             Am
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
F                G
Be my mirror, my sword, and shield
   C                 Am
My missionaries in a foreign field
F                 G
For some reason I can't explain
  C                     Am
I know Saint Peter will call my name ,
   F            G
never an honest word
              Bm               Am
But that was when I ruled the world

F - Am x3
G x2


F - G - C - Am    x2
- Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh -

  F              G
I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
C             Am
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
F                G
Be my mirror, my sword, and shield
   C                 Am
My missionaries in a foreign field
F                 G
For some reason I can't explain
  C                     Am
I know Saint Peter will call my name ,
   F            G
never an honest word
             C                Am
But that was when I ruled the world

F - G - C - Am              and fading...
Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh
