For those who, like me, can't really play tablature, here's some nice easy chords you follow - complete with finger positions. Not the difficult chords of the actual version sound kinda gross if not picked out as was meant to be done. Chords: (eBGDAE) Am - 012200 F - 11233x Cadd9 - 330230 G - 330023 C - 010233 (full C) C9 - 010230 (the common C) D7sus4 - 3120xx D7 - 1210xx Dm - 1320xx Capo at 2. Am Am F F The soldier came knocking upon the queen's door Cadd9 G Cadd9 G He said, "I am not fighting for you anymore" Am Am F And the queen knew she'd seen his face someplace before C G Cadd9 And slowly she let him inside Am Am F F He said, "I've watched your palace up here on the hill Cadd9 G Cadd9 G And I've wondered who's the woman for whom we all kill Am Am F F But I am leaving tomorrow, and you can do what you will C G Cadd9 Only first I am asking you why" F F C9 C9 Down the long narrow hall he was led D7sus4 D7sus4 D7 Dm Into her room with her tapestries red Am Am F F And she never once took the crown from her head C G Cadd9 She asked him there to sit down Am Am F F He said, "I see you now and you are so very young Cadd9 G Cadd9 G But I've seen more battles lost than I have battles won Am Am F F And I've got this intuition says it's all for your fun C G Cadd9 And now will you tell me why?" Am Am F F Well the young queen, she fixed him with an arrogant eye Cadd9 G Cadd9 G She said, "You won't understand, and you may as well not try" Am Am F F But her face was a child's, and he thought she would cry C G Cadd9 But she closed herself up like a fan F F C9 C9 And she said, "I have swallowed a secret burning thread D7sus4 D7sus4 D7 Dm It cuts me inside and often I've bled" Am Am F F And he laid his hand then on the top of her head C G Cadd9 And he bowed her down to the ground F F C9 C9 D7sus4 D7 Dm OooooooooooooH Am Am F F Cadd9 G Cadd9 OooooooooooooooH Am Am F F "Tell me how hungry are you, how weak you must feel Cadd9 G Cadd9 G As you are living here alone and you are never revealed Am Am F F But I won't march again on your battlefield" C G Cadd9 And he took her to the window to see Am Am F F And the sun it was gold, though the sky it was grey Cadd9 G Cadd9 G And she wanted more than she ever could say Am Am F F But she knew how it frightened her and she turned away C G Cadd9 And would not look at his face again F F C9 C9 He said, "I want to live as an honest man D7sus4 D7sus4 D7 Dm To get all I deserve and to give all I can Am An F F And to love a young woman whom I don't understand C G Cadd9 Your highness, your ways are very strange" Am Am F F But the crown, it had fallen, and she thought she would break Cadd9 G Cadd9 G And she stood there ashamed of the way her heart ached Am Am F F And she took him to the doorstep and she asked him to wait C G Cadd9 She would only be a moment inside (play chords sharply) Am Am F F Out in the distance her order was heard C G C G And the soldier was killed still waiting for her word Am Am F F And while the queen went on strangling in the solitude she preferred C G C G The battle continued on F F C9 C9 D7sus4 D7 Dm Ooooooooooooooooh Am Am F F Cadd9 G Cadd9 Oooooooooooooooooh fade on Cadd9
