[Intro]

D D/C C B7sus4 B
D D/C C B7sus4 B

[Verse]

    Em9              Em9b6
The rusted chains of prison moons
    Em6add9          Em9b6
Are shattered by the sun.
  Em9            Em9b6
I walk a road, horizons change
    Em6add9        Em9b6
The tournament's begun.
    Am           Fmaj7
The purple piper plays his tune,
    F#m7b5       Fmaj7
The choir softly sing;
      Em9             Em9b6
Three lullabies in an ancient tongue,
        Em6add9              D
For the court of the crimson king.

[Chorus]

  D/C C B7sus4 B
D D/C C B7sus4 B

[Verse]

    Em9           Em9b6
The keeper of the city keys
     Em6add9         Em9b6
Puts shutters on the dreams.
  Em9              Em9b6
I wait outside the pilgrim's door
     Em6add9      Em9b6
With insufficient schemes.
    Am                     Fmaj7
The black queen chants the funeral march,
    F#m7b5                   Fmaj7
The cracked brass bells will ring;
   Em9             Em9b6
To summon back the fire witch
       Em6add9              D
To the court of the crimson king.

[Chorus]

  D/C C B7sus4 B
D D/C C B7sus4 B

[Chorus]

D D/C C B7sus4 B
D D/C C B7sus4 B

[Verse]

    Em9                Em9b6    
The gardener plants an evergreen
       Em6add9        Em9b6
Whilst trampling on a flower.
  Em9                 Em9b6
I chase the wind of a prison ship,
   Em6add9             Em9b6
To taste the sweet and sour.
    Am              Fmaj7
The pattern juggler lifts his hand;
    F#m7b5    Fmaj7
The orchestra begin;
   Em9              Em9b6
As slowly turns the grinding wheel
       Em6add9              D
In the court of the crimson king.

[Chorus]

D D/C C B7sus4 B

[Verse]

   Em9                Em9b6    
On soft grey mornings widows cry,
    Em6add9          Em9b6
The wise men share a joke.
  Em9            Em9b6    
I run to grasp divining signs
   Em6add9     Em9b6
To satisfy the hoax.
    Am            Fmaj7
The yellow jester does not play
    F#m7b5           Fmaj7
But gently pulls the strings
    Em9           Em9b6    
And smiles as the puppets dance
       Em6add9              D
In the court of the crimson king.

[Chorus]
