Chords : F , G , C , Am


[Verse 1]
  Am       F        G
I used to rule the world 
           C                    Am
Seas would rise when I gave the word 
                     F     G
Now in the morning I sleep alone 
          C                 Am
Sweep the streets I used to own
 
F   G   C   Am    x2

[Verse 2] 
  Am        F         G
I used to roll the dice 
          C                 Am
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes 
              F            G
Listen as the crowd would sing: 
          C                 Am
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"


[Verse 3] 
  Am           F        G
One minute I held the key 
         C                    Am
Next the walls were closed on me 
                          F        G
And I discovered that my castles stand 
     C                    Am
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand 

[Chorus] 
  F              G
I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing 
C             Am
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing 
F                G
Be my mirror, my sword, and shield 
   C                 Am
My missionaries in a foreign field 
F                 G
For some reason I can't explain 
C                     Am              F      G
Once you go there was never, never an honest word
         Em               C 
That was when I ruled the world 
 
F   G   C   Am    x2


[Verse 4] 
  Am                    F     G
It was the wicked and wild wind 
              C               Am
Blew down the doors to let me in. 
                          F        G
Shattered windows and the sound of drums 
       C                    Am
People couldn't believe what I'd become
 

[Verse 5]
  Am       F      G
Revolutionaries wait 
        C               Am
For my head on a silver plate 
                   F      G
Just a puppet on a lonely string
   C                         Am
Oh who would ever want to be king? 
 

[Chorus]  
  F              G
I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing 
C             Am
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing 
F                G
Be my mirror, my sword, and shield 
   C                 Am
My missionaries in a foreign field 
F                 G
For some reason I can't explain 
  C                     Am              
I know Saint Peter will call my name ,
   F            G 
never an honest word
              Em               C 
But that was when I ruled the world  
 
F   Am x3
G x2
 
 
F   G   C   Am    x2
  Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh  


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