Write me if you use this.


Note:  the timing of the words to the chord changes is
approximate, because the singer uses very elastic phrasing.
This is how I do it.


[verse]
C                      F
When I think of heaven
Am         F                 C
Deliver me in a black-winged bird
F          Am     F           C               F
I think of flying down into a sea of pens and feathers
Am            F              C                 F
And all other instruments of faith and sex and God
                  Am           F
In the belly of a black-winged bird.
Am    F
Don't try to feed me
Am        F
I've been here before
    C           D
And I deserve a little more


[chorus]
F Am    C       D              F
I belong in the service of the Queen
F Am    C   D               F
I belong anywhere but in between
F          Am     C               D
She's been crying and I've been thinking
F     Am     C         D
And I am the Rain King


[verse]
D          C           F            Am   F
And I said mama, mama, mama, why am I so alone?
C          F
I can't go outside
             Am                F
I'm scared I might not make it home
    C           F
I'm alive, I'm alive
     Am           F
But I'm sinking in
           C                 F
If there's anyone at home at your place, darling
Am                      F
Why don't you invite me in?
Am    F
Don't try to bleed me
Am        F
I've been there before
    C           D
And I deserve a little more


[chorus]
F Am    C       D              F
I belong in the service of the Queen
F Am    C    D              F
I belong anywhere but in between
F          Am    C              D
She's been lying and I've been sinking
F     Am     C         D
And I am the Rain King


[bridge]
Am          C                F
Hey, I only want the same as anyone
Am           C   F   Am
Henderson is waiting for the sun
                   C         F
Oh, it seems night endlessly begins and ends
Am            C               F
After all the dreaming I come home again


repeat C F Am F 2x here


[verse]
C               F
When I think of heaven
Am         F                 C
Deliver me in a black-winged bird
F          Am
I think of dying
F                C                  F
Lay me down in a field of flame and heather
Am           F             C                F
Render up my body into the burning heart of God
                Am             F
In the belly of a black-winged bird
Am    F
Don't try to bleed me
Am        F
I've been here before
    C           D
And I deserve a little more


[chorus]
F Am    C       D              F
I belong in the service of the queen
F Am    C    D              F
I belong anywhere but in between
F          Am    C             D
She's been dying and I've been drinking
F     Am     C          D
And I am the Rain King
