[Intro]

C  Am  Em  Em


[Verse]

C      Am          Em
Once I wanted to be the greatest
C          Am              Em
No wind of waterfall could stall me
    F             Dm     
And then came the rush of the flood
G
Stars of night turned deep to dust


[Chorus]

        C
Melt me down
     Am                Em
Into big black armour
         C        Am
Leave no trace of grace
             Em
Just in your honour
         C
Lower me down
    Am
To culprit south

Make 'em wash a space in town
         F
For the lead
        Dm
And the dregs of my bed
          G
I've been sleepin'

         F
Lower me down
       Dm
Pin me in
           G
Secure the grounds
                     C     Am    Em
For the later parade


[Verse]

C      Am           Em
Once I wanted to be the greatest
C            Am    Em
Two fists of solid rock
C           Am   
With brains that could explain
    Em
Any feeling


[Chorus]

         F
Lower me down
       Dm
Pin me in
           G
Secure the grounds
        F
For the lead
        Dm
And the dregs of my bed
          G
I've been sleepin'
                  C   Am   Em
For the later parade


[Verse]

C      Am           Em
Once I wanted to be the greatest
C          Am              Em
No wind of waterfall could stall me
    F             Dm
And then came the rush of the flood
G
Stars of night turned deep to dust

The Greatest is an amazing song. the chords are right and simple to play. i'm convinced that the difficult here is how to sing as good as Cat Power do!
