STANDARD TUNING - CAPO 1

INTRO: F - C - C - Am    x2

(Am)      F        C
I used to rule the world 
           C                    Am
Seas would rise when I gave the word 
                     F       C
Now in the morning I sweep alone 
          C                 Am
Sweep the streets I used to own

F - C - C - Am    x2

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


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

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

F - C - C - Am    x2

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

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

F - C - C - Am    x2
(Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh)

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

The 1st c in the chord progression should be a g and the last am before the chorus should be c. Otherwise, good
