Title:  King of Pain
Artist:  The Police
Songwriter:  Sting

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

[Verse 1]
          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
There's a black hat caught in the high   tree top
          G         A               G      A   C#sus C#m Gmaj7
There's a flagpole rag and the wind  won't stop

[Chorus]
       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.

[Verse 2]
           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
          Bm
There's a black hat caught in a high tree top

that's my soul up there
          A/G
There's a flagpole rag and the wind won't stop
F#m                       G
that's my soul up there

[Chorus]
       D                                    G
I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
         D                                        G
with the world turning circles running 'round my brain.
        D                                         G
I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign
         D                             G
But it's my destiny to be the king of pain.

[Bridge]
           Bm
There's a fossil that's trapped in a high cliff wall

that's my soul up there

           A
There's a dead salmon frozen in a water fall
F#m                        G
that's my soul up there

          Bm
There's a blue whale beached by a springtide's ebb

that's my soul up there

          A/G
There's a butterfly trapped in a spider's web
F#m                       G
that's my soul up there

[Chorus]
        D                                    G
I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
           D                                      G
with the world turning circles running 'round my brain
         D                                       G
I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign
         D                              G
but it's my destiny tro be the king of pain.
                   G
There's a king of pain.

[Bridge]
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.

[guitar solo]
              Bm
There's a red fox torn by a huntsmen's pack

that's my soul up there
          A/G
There's a black winged gull with a broken back
F#m                    G
that's my soul up there
           F#m7        Fmaj7           E7  Eb
There's a little black spot  on the sun  today
         F#m7      Fmaj7      Eb7      D9    D9/F#
It's the same old thing  as yes - ter - day

[Chorus]
        D                                    G
I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
          D                                       G
with the world turning circles running 'round my brain
        D                                        G
I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign
         D                             G      D
but it's my destiny to be the king of pain

[Outro]
G                D
   King of pain        (fade out throwing in
                        "I will always be..")
