VERSE
A              C#m
  When the Emperor lost his bride
Dmaj7         Fdim           [ A ]
  At first he lay in bed and cried
A                  C#m
  Till she came to him in a dream
Dmaj7           Fdim
  With words of consolation


BRIDGE
 Dmaj7
‘Death is untrue, I’m merely sleeping
    Asus4       A         C#m
I’m waiting for you, in a world way beyond weeping
Dmaj7               Fdim
Join me there soon, until you’re mine
C#m               F#sus4   F#m  C#m
Build me a marble Valentine


CHORUS
Bm7                 E7sus4              [ Dmaj7 ]
Let the world know, grief built the Taj Mahal’

VERSE
A              C#m
  When the Emperor rubbed his eyes
Dmaj7      Fdim              [ A ]
  An azure morning filled the skies
A          C#m
  Energized by his dream,
Dmaj7     Fdim
  The Emperor was moved to


BRIDGE
Dmaj7
Summon his men, he ordered them ‘Find me
    Asus4      A              C#m
The whitest of stone, let its radiance remind me
   Dmaj7                Fdim
Of all I have lost, the source of my pain
    C#m                F#sus4 F#m  C#m
The joy that in time I will regain


CHORUS
Bm7                 E7sus4              [ Dmaj7 ]
Let the world know, grief built the Taj Mahal


BRIDGE (part)
Dmaj7  Fdim
       As for the cost 
C#m                  F#sus4 F#m  C#m
What is the price of love unlost


CHORUS
Bm7                 E7sus4              [ Dmaj7 ]
Let the world know, grief built the Taj Mahal’
