E                        D                  A                E
Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth and taste

                          D                       A                         E
I've been around for long, long years I've stolen many a man's soul and faith

                     D                  A/C# A                E 
I was around when Jesus Christ had His moment of doubt and pain

                      D                 A/C# A                  E  Esus4 E
I made damn sure that Pilate washed his hands and sealed his fate



B                                     A E       A/E  E     
Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my  name, 

           B                E/B B           A   E    Esus4  E
but what's puzzling you, is the  nature of my game



                 D                 A                            E 
Stuck around St. Petersburg when I saw it was a time for a change

                        D               A/C# A                E
Killed the Tzar and his ministers; Anastasia  screamed in vain

                        D                        A/C#   A
I rode a tank held a general's rank when the blitzkrieg raged

          E             Esus4    E
and the bodies stank



B                                     A E       A/E  E     
Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my  name,  Oh    yeah  

          B                E/B B               E    A/E    E
Ah what's puzzling you, is the  nature of my game




E                                 D                            A/C# A                 E 
 I watched with glee while your kings and queens fought for ten   decades for the gods they made

Esus4 E                            D               A/C#             E           Esus4    E
    I shouted out, "Who killed the Kennedys?" when after all it was you and me

                       D              A/C# A                 E   Esus  E
Let me please introduce myself I'm a man   of wealth and taste 
 
                     D                   A/C#                          E        Esus4   E     
And I laid traps for troubadours who get killed before they reached Bombay


B                                     A E       Esus4   E     
Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my  name,   Oh      yeah  

           B                E/B B           A   E    A/E    E

E chord should be played at end and start of each line, this shows to only play the E chord at the end.
