[Intro]
I got some requests for the plucking pattern, it's really easy and you just repeat 
this over and over.. Here it is:
        Cadd9       Dsus4           G              Em7

Cadd9Dsus4 - GEm7    (x2)

[Verse]
(Em7)     Cadd9    Dsus4
I used to rule the world 
           G                    Em7
Seas would rise when I gave the word 
                     Cadd9   Dsus4
Now in the morning I sleep alone 
          G                 Em7
Sweep the streets I used to own

[Instrumental] (x2)
Cadd9Dsus4 - GEm7

[Verse]
(Em7)     Cadd9     Dsus4
I used to roll the dice 
          G                 Em7
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes 
              Cadd9        Dsus4
Listen as the crowd would sing: 
          G                 Em7
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"
(Em7)        Cadd9    Dsus4
One minute I held the key 
         G                    Em7
Next the walls were closed on me 
                          Cadd9    Dsus4
And I discovered that my castles stand 
     G                    Em7
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand 

[Verse]
  Cadd9          Dsus4
I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing 
G             Em7
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing 
Cadd9            Dsus4
Be my mirror, my sword, and shield 
   G                 Em7
My missionaries in a foreign field 
Cadd9             Dsus4
For some reason I can't explain 
G                     Em7             Cadd9  Dsus4
Once you go there was never, never an honest word
         G                Em7
That was when I ruled the world 

[Instrumental] (x2)
Cadd9Dsus4 - GEm7

[Verse]
(Em7)                  Cadd9 Dsus4
It was the wicked and wild wind 
              G               Em7
Blew down the doors to let me in. 
                          Cadd9    Dsus4
Shattered windows and the sound of drums 
       G                    Em7
People couldn't believe what I'd become
(Em7)    Cadd9  Dsus4
Revolutionaries wait 
        G               Em7
For my head on a silver plate 
                   Cadd9  Dsus4
Just a puppet on a lonely string
   G                         Em7
Oh who would ever want to be king? 
  Cadd9          Dsus4
I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing 
G             Em7
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing 
Cadd9            Dsus4
Be my mirror, my sword, and shield 
   G                 Em7
My missionaries in a foreign field 
Cadd9             Dsus4
For some reason I can't explain 
  G                     Em7             
I know Saint Peter will call my name ,
   Cadd9       Dsus4
never an honest word
              G               Em7 
But that was when I ruled the world  

[Instrumental]
Cadd9Em7 (x3)
Dsus4 (x2)
Cadd9  - Dsus4 - GEm7    (x2)
(Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh)

[Verse]
  Cadd9          Dsus4
I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing 
G             Em7
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing 
Cadd9            Dsus4
Be my mirror, my sword, and shield 
   G                 Em7
My missionaries in a foreign field 
Cadd9             Dsus4
For some reason I can't explain 
  G                     Em7             
I know Saint Peter will call my name ,
  Cadd9        Dsus4
never an honest word
              G               Em7(once)
But that was when I ruled the world

I'm pretty sure the lyrics are "I know Saint Peter WON'T call my name"

Other than that, this is a really accurate chord! :]
