VERSE 1
Db                                  Fm
Once upon a time in the land of Sinaplenty
Gb                            Gb5 F5 Eb5 Db5
There lived a king who didn't deserve to be
F7
He knew not where he came from
Gb
Nor where he was going
A                                  Ab
He never once said thank u, never please

VERSE 2
Db                          Fm
Now this king had a subject named Electra
Gb                                Gb5 F5 Eb5 Db5
Who loved him with a passion uncontested
F7
4 him each day she had a smile
       Gb
But it didn't matter
A                                  Ab
The king was looking 4 the ladder

CHORUS 1
Db                            Fm
Everybody's looking for the ladder
Gb                        Gb5 F5 Eb5 Db5
Everybody wants salvation of the soul
    F7                               Gb
The steps you take are no easy road
          A                                    Ab
But the reward is great 4 those that want to go

VERSE 3
Db                                     Fm
A feeling of self worth will caress u
Gb                                       Gb5 F5 Eb5 Db5
The size of the whole wide world will decrease
F7                                 Gb
The love of God's creation will undress u
A                                   Ab
And time spent alone my friend will cease

CHORUS 2
Db                            Fm
Everybody's looking for the answers
Gb                        Gb5 F5 Eb5 Db5
How the story started and how it will end
F7                               Gb
   Whats the use in half a story    half a dream
  A                                 Ab
U have to climb the steps inbetween
Db                            Fm
Everybody's looking for the ladder
Gb                        Gb5 F5 Eb5 Db5
Everybody wants salvation of the soul
    F7                               Gb
The steps you take are no easy road
          A                                    Ab
But the reward is great 4 those that want to go
