Em  Am  Dsus2  Em x2


Verse 1
                 Em                   Am
It's good to be king, if just for a while
                 Dsus2                    Em
To be there in velvet, yeah to give 'em a smile
                  Em                 Am
It's good to get high and never come down
                  Dsus2                   Em  (riff)
It's good to be king of your own little town

(Riff between verse and chorus)
E -------------- (into
B -------------- A chord)
G --------------
D --------------
A ---------2-2--
E -0-0-3-3------

Chorus 1
           A                     D       G  
Yeah the world would swing oh if I were king
C G D                   C G Em         A               Asus  A
     Can I help it if I       still dream time to time

Verse 2
It's good to be king and have your own way
Get a feeling of peace at the end of the day
And when your bulldog barks and your canary sings
You're out there with winners, it's good to be king

Chorus 2
Yeah, I'll be king when dogs get wings
Can I help it if I still dream time to time

(guitar solo over verse chords)

Verse 3
It's good to be king and have your own world
It helps to make friends, it's good to meet girls
A sweet little queen, who can't run away
It's good to be king, whatever it pays   (no riff)

Chorus 3
C G D               C G D
     Excuse me if I      have some place in my mind
C G Em          A             Asus  A  Asus  A  Asus  A
      Where I go time to time

Good tab of a great song!

I'd suggest using a Dsus2 (x-x-0-2-3-0) in the verses, which makes this "e" ring out over all the chords, like Petty does too.
