    Am           Am          Fsus9         Fsus9
The soldier came knocking upon the queen's door
          Csus9    Gsus4/B      Csus9  G
He said, "I am not fighting for you anymore"
        Am               Am            Fsus9         Fsus9
And the queen knew she'd seen his face    someplace before
     Csus9     Gsus4/B   Csus9  Csus9
And slowly she let him inside

          Am                Am         Fsus9         Fsus9
He said, "I've watched your palace up here on the hill
         Csus9              Gsus4/B   Csus9       G
And I've wondered who's the woman for whom we all kill
         Am        Am                   Fsus9         Fsus9
But I am leaving tomorrow, and you can do what you will
      Csus9     Gsus4/B   Csus9  Csus9
Only first I am asking you why"

  F9      F9      C9              C9
Down the long narrow hall he was led
D7sus4   D7sus4        D7         Dm
Into her room with her tapestries red
    Am        Am              F9            F9
And she never once took the crown from her head
      Csus9     Gsus4/B   Csus9  Csus9
She asked him there to sit down

             Am      Am             F9        F9
He said, "I see you now and you are so very young
          Cadd9             G        Cadd9           G
But I've seen more battles lost than I have battles won
         Am           Am               F9           F9
And I've got this intuition says it's all for your fun
    Csus9     Gsus4/B   Csus9  Csus9
And now will you tell me why?"

          Am               Am                  F9         F9
Well the young queen, she fixed him with an arrogant eye
                Cadd9         G           Cadd9           G
She said, "You won't understand, and you may as well not try"
         Am           Am            F9                F9
But her face was a child's, and he thought she would cry
         Csus9     Gsus4/B   Csus9  Csus9
But she closed herself up like a fan

        F9             F9          C9              C9
And she said, "I have swallowed a secret burning thread
   D7sus4     D7sus4   D7         Dm
It cuts me inside and often I've bled"
        Am            Am          F9         F9
And he laid his hand then on the top of her head
     Csus9     Gsus4/B   Csus9  Csus9
And he bowed her down to the ground


Fsus9   Fsus9   C/E     C/E     D7sus4   D7sus4    D7      Dm7
["Oooooh" and instrumental]
Am      Am      Fsus9   Fsus9   Csus9    Gsus4/B   Csus9   Csus9
["Oooooh" and instrumental]

         Am              Am       F9            F9
"Tell me how hungry are you, how weak you must feel
           Csus9              Gsus4/B   Csus9       G
As you are living here alone and you are never revealed
      Am            Am       F9         F9
But I won't march again on your battlefield"
        Csus9     Gsus4/B   Csus9  Csus9
And he took her to the window to see

         Am         Am              F9          F9
And the sun it was gold, though the sky it was grey
    Csus9              Gsus4/B   Csus9       G
And she wanted more than she ever could say
        Am          Am                 F9           F9
But she knew how it frightened her and she turned away
          Csus9     Gsus4/B   Csus9  Csus9
And would not look at his face again

          F9        F9      C9        C9
He said, "I want to live as an honest man
   D7sus4       D7sus4       D7         Dm
To get all I deserve and to give all I can
        Am           An          F9           F9
And to love a young woman whom I don't understand
      Csus9     Gsus4/B   Csus9  Csus9
Your highness, your ways are very strange"

          Am             Am             F9                F9
But the crown, it had fallen, and she thought she would break
         Csus9              Gsus4/B   Csus9       G
And she stood there ashamed of the way her heart ached
         Am              Am                F9          F9
And she took him to the doorstep and she asked him to wait
           Csus9     Gsus4/B   Csus9  Csus9
She would only be a moment inside

Am         Am           Fsus2     Fsus2
Out in the distance her order was heard
        Csus9          Gsus4/B      Csus9              G
And the soldier was killed still waiting for her word
              Am            Am                Fsus9           Fsus9
And while the queen went on strangling in the solitude she preferred
    Csus9     Gsus4/B   Csus9  Csus9
The battle continued on


Fsus9   Fsus9   C/E     C/E     D7sus4   D7sus4    D7      Dm7
["Oooooh" and instrumental]
Am      Am      Fsus9   Fsus9   Csus9    Gsus4/B   Csus9   Csus9
["Oooooh" and instrumental]

Csus9   Csus9
[repeat and fade]
