King of the World

Steely Dan

[Am7] Hello [Bm7] one and[E]all
[Am7] Was it [Bm7] you I[E]used to know?
[Am7] Can't you [Bm7] hear me[E]call
[Am7] On this [Bm7] old ham[E]radio?
[Am7] All I've [Bm7] got to[E] say
[Am7] I'm [Bm7] alive and [E] feeling fine
[Am7] Should you[Bm7] come [E] my way
[Am7] You can[Bm7] share my [E] poison wine

[Bm7]No marigolds in the promised [CMaj7] land,
[C]There's a hole in the [G] ground where they[D]used to grow
[Bm7]Any man left on the[CMaj7] Rio Grande
[Em7]Is the[D]king of the world as far as[A]I know

I won't take your bread
I don't need no helping hand
I can't be no savage
I can't be no highwayman
Show me where you are
You and I can will this day
Driving in my car
Through the ruins of Santa Fe

[Chorus]

[Instrumental break]

[Am7] [Bm7] [E] [Am7] [Bm7] [CMaj7] [FMaj7] [Em7] [EbMaj7] [Dm7] [DbMaj7] [Cm7] [F]

Keyboard Interlude (tabbed for guitar)--Repeat several times.

	E|-2---3---5---5--3---3--5--7--5--3--|
	B|-3---5---7---7--2---5--7--8--7--5--|
	G|-0--------------0------------------|
	D|-----------------------------------|
	A|-----------------------------------|
	E|-----------------------------------|

[Am7I'm reading[Em7]last years papers
[Am7]Although[Em7]I don't know why
[Am7]Assassins, cons and[Em7]rapers
[C]Might as[G]well[A]die

When you come around
No more pain and no regrets
Watch the sun go brown
Smoking cobalt cigarettes

There's no need to hide
Taking things the easy way
If I stay inside
I might live till Saturday

No marigolds in the promised land
There's a hole in the ground where they used to grow
Any man left of the Rio Grande
Is the king of the world
King of the world as far as I know

You know it is.....THANKS! (leroy777@mindspring.com)

I know this isn't a bass chart, but if you play an Am7 chord over a C bass note, & a Bm7 over a D bass note, then doesn't that make those chords more like C6/9, D6/9, 'cause that's what I'm hearing. Also in the bridge(?) the bass player goes from B down to A, then up to C. Agree or disagree?
