In the Kingdom of Spain
      D                G step bass Em
There are such colours
They defy any name
     D              G    Em
Like drab and dolor
                        C        D
But oh the King and the Queen of Spain
           G                    Em
With their long unpronounceable names
           C             D                     Em       D
Grace the table at the long lost Kingdom of Spain

*Chords remain the same though 2nd verse*

In the Kingdom of Light
A lithe young lawyer
Tries a case for her unjustly arrested brother
But oh the King and the Queen of Light
Rule with unbendable might
So it's to the gallows with the long lost Kingdom of Light

Doboroe Solo (repeat intro)

*Chords remain the same though 3rd verse*

In the Kingdom of Love
Oh, we're all just fodder
As the cannonades drub
Our sons and daughters
But oh the King and the Queen of Love
In their long white fingerless gloves
Bang the gavel for the long lost Kingdom of Love

*Not sure about the end but heres my best shot*

D    Em
Of love
D    Em
Of love

*end on D*
