Title:  King of Pain
Artist:  The Police
Songwriter:  Sting
My Name:  Craig Quenneville (e0fvyczs@mail.erin.utoronto.ca)

This is my first attempt at submitting anything to OLGA. Hope
this makes the cut.  This is only a bunch of chords and lyrics,
sorry, no tabs.  The solo is pretty easy, but no guitar with
me right now.  Just play around with the bottom E and B strings
and you'll figure it out!

			KING OF PAIN

          Bm           A               Bm    A     Bm A  Bm A
There's a little black spot on the sun    to-day

         G         A           G         A   C#sus  C#m  Gmaj7
It's the same old thing as yes - ter - day

          Bm         A                 Bm      A   Bm A  Bm A

          G         A               G      A   C#sus C#m Gmaj7
There's a flagpole rag and the wind  won't stop

       A/D           G6             D/F#     G
I have stood here before inside the pouring rain

         A/D              G6             D/F#      G
with the world turning cir-cles running 'round my brain.

        A/D           G6               D/F#       G
I guess I'm always hop-ing that you'll end  this reign

         A/D      G6           D/F#     G
but it's my  destiny to be the king of pain.


           Bm
There's a  little black spot on the sun today

that's my soul up there

         A/G
It's the same old thing as yesterday

F#m                       G
that's my soul up there

There's a fossil that's trapped in a high cliff wall

that's my soul up there

There's a dead salmon frozen in a water fall

F#m                        G
that's my soul up there

There's a king of pain.

A                                        G
There's a king on a throne with his eyes   torn out

A                                 G
There's a blindman looking for a shadow of doubt;

A                                 G
There's a rich man sleeping on a golden bed

A                               D/G       Bm
There's a skeleton choking on a crust of bread.
