               Kings, Queens, Beggars and Thieves - Matt Corby

Taken from this acoustic performance

the right times for chord changes, pretty basic.
All chords can be either plucked or played openly with whatever strings you want.

Intro/Verse 1

Dreams,
They keep me awake
Like this song,
That is stuck in my brain
And it goes
"---|Dum-da-dum, da-dum, da-da-da-da-dum, da-dum, da-dum,
d---|a-dum, da-dum, dum, da-da-da, da-da-da-dum"

[Chorus]

So I stood in the heated halls and I played for the King and the Queen,
Oh I went out in the blistering cold and I played for the beggars and thieves

[Verse 2] (played same as verse 1)

Dreams,
Oh listen to me
I'm so tired of this place
And I wanna be free

[Bridge]

And they say
"Oh don't you get it, You're never,
You're never going back home"
And they say
"Oh don't you get it,
There is more to life, there is more to life than I know"
