i found a bunch of different tabs for king of pain, but couldn't find anything that
good on an acoustic guitar. so here's something easy that will get you folk singers through
song. it starts on Am, instead of Bm, so capo the second fret if you're playing with a 
or along with the album.


king of pain
acoustic arrangement by zak


intro;

there's a [Am] little black [G] spot on the [Am} sun to- [G] day
repeat progression [Am] [G] [Am] [G]
it's the [F] same old [G] thing as [F] yes - ter - [G} day
[Bsus/E] [Bm/E] [Fmaj7] [Fmaj7/C]
there's a [Am] black hat [G] caught in the [Am] high tree [G] top
repeat progression [Am] [G] [Am] [G]
there's a [F] flagpole [G] rag and the [F] wind  won't [G] stop
[Bsus/E] [Bm/E] [Fmaj7] [Fmaj7/C]

i have [G/C] stood here be- [Dm7] fore inside the [C/E] pouring [F] rain
with the [G/C] world turning [Dm7] circles running [C/E] 'round my [F] brain
i guess [G/C] I'm always [Dm7] hoping that you'll [C/E] end this [F] reign
but it's [G/C] my desti- [Dm7] ny to be the[C/E] king of [F] pain


verse:

there's a [Am] little black spot on the sun today (that's my soul up there)
it's the [G] same old thing as yesterday [Em] (that's my soul up) [F] (there)
there's a [Am] black hat caught in a high tree top (that's my soul up there)
There's a [G] flagpole rag and the wind won't stop [Em] (that's my soul up) [F] (there)


chorus:

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


verse repeats


chorus repeats


bridge:

[G] there's a king on a throne with his [F] eyes torn out
[G] there's a blind man looking for a [F] shadow of doubt
[G] there's a rich man sleeping on a [F] golden bed
[G] there's a skeleton choking on a [C] crust of [Am] bread


guitar solo in [Am]


outro:

there's a [Am] red fox torn by a huntsmen's pack (that's my soul up there)
there's a [G] black winged gull with a broken back [Em] (that's my soul up) [F] (there)
there's a [Am] little black spot  on the [NC] sun  today
it's the [NC] same old thing  as yesterday [Em] [F]


refrain:

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


fade out [C] to [F] repeats

notes- the timing is a little weird for the intro where it goes [Bsus/E] [Bm/E] [Fmaj7]
but not that hard. in the second part of the intro, the chords are the way they are so
can walk up with the bass line if you listen for it. also, i usually play the open [G] 
for the [Am] [G] part, and a barre [G] for the [F] [G] part.
depending on how you're playing this, you might want to keep the chord switches during
verses, on the album it sounds like a muted arpeggio, so i just finger-pick it.
the [NC] in the outro is for no chords.
and here are the chords you will need, in order, for the intro:

intro:
     [Am] x 0 2 2 1 0
      [G] 3 2 0 0 0 3
      [F] 1 3 3 2 1 1
      [G] 3 5 5 4 3 3
 [Bsus/E] 0 2 4 4 0 0
   [Bm/E] 0 2 4 4 3 2
  [Fmaj7] x x 3 2 1 0
[Fmaj7/C] x 3 3 2 1 0

    [G/C] x 3 0 0 0 3
    [Dm7] x x 0 2 1 1
    [C/E] 0 3 2 0 1 0
      [F] 1 3 3 2 1 1
