Bm               F#
Play me old king cole
E                    F#
That I may join with you,
          A                  D
All your hearts now seem so far from me
                   A
It hardly seems to matter now.

Bm                          F#
And the nurse will tell you lies
      E                  F#
Of a kingdom beyond the skies.
          A                 D
But I am lost within this half-world,
                    A
It hardly seems to matter now.

E
Play me my song.
F#
Here it comes again.
E
Play me my song.
F#
Here it comes again.

Just a little bit more time,
Time left to live out my life.

F#m                 B
Old king cole was a merry old soul,
       D               F#m
And a merry old soul was he.
So he called for his pipe, 
       B
And he called for his bowl,
       D                       F#m
And he called for his fiddlers three.

F#m                 E
But the clock, tick-tock,
         D
On the mantlepiece -
And I want, and I feel, and I know, and I touch,
E    F#
Her warmth...

Shes a lady, shes got time,
F#                     E                          F#  
Brush back your hair, and let me get to know your face.
D#m                     
Shes a lady, she is mine.
F#                      E                         F#
Brush back your hair, and let me get to know your flesh.

F#       D#m     Bbm       G#m         
Ive been waiting here for so long
             F#
And all this time has passed me by
B                          F#
It doesnt seem to matter now

F# B               C#                 F#      B C# 
   You stand there with your fixed expression
F#      D#m            Bbm      G#m
Casting doubt on all I have to say.
             F#           E F# 
Why dont you touch me, touch me,
E    F#   E         F# E F# E F# 
Why dont you touch me, touch me,
         B      ( E F# E B E F#     E F# E B E B ) - repeat several times
Touch me now, now, now, now, now...

B C# F#
F# C# F# C# x4 --- [very fast]
F#  C#  F#  F# C#    F#

--------------------------------------------------------

[I recommend to play the last part like that, 
otherwise the fast part wouldn't be playable:]

E  - 7-7-9-9-9-7
F# - 9-9-11-11-11-9
B  - 7-9-9-8-7-7
C# - 9-11-11-10-9-9

But the last F# chord play on 2-4-4-3-2-2, but I think it's obvious ;)

Anyway this is one of my favourite Genesis songs, I know that my work is not 
100% correct, but makes it able to play and sing at once, I hope you'll 

enjoy
as much as I do,
