[Intro]
D  E  A  F#m    
D  E  A  F#m  

[Verse 1]
           D        E
I used to rule the world 
           A                    F#m
Seas would rise when I gave the word 
                     D       E
Now in the morning I sleep alone 
          A                 F#m
Sweep the streets I used to own

[Instrumental]
D  E  A  F#m    
D  E  A  F#m  

[Verse 2]
          D         E
I used to roll the dice 
          A                 F#m
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes 
              D            E
Listen as the crowd would sing: 
          A                 F#m
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"
              D        E
One minute I held the key 
         A                    F#m
Next the walls were closed on me 
                          D        E
And I discovered that my castles stand 
     A                    F#m
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand 

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

[Instrumental]
D  E  A  F#m    
D  E  A  F#m    

[Verse]                     D    E
It was the wicked and wild wind 
              A               F#m
Blew down the doors to let me in. 
                          D        E
Shattered windows and the sound of drums 
       A                     F#m
People couldn't believe what I'd become
         D      E
Revolutionaries wait 
        A               F#m
For my head on a silver plate 
                   D      E
Just a puppet on a lonely string
   A                         F#m
Oh who would ever want to be king? 

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

[Instrumental]
D  F#m 
D  F#m 
D  F#m 
E   E

[Bridge]
D  E  A  F#m   
Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh
D  E  A  F#m   
Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh 

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

[Outro]
D  E  C#m  F#m              
Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh
D  E  C#m  F#m              
Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh
