Tuning
Capo
C G C G C E
8th fret
This tab is based largely off of the preexisting
one on this site, I just made some tweaks. You'll 
obviously have to listen to the song to get the 
strum patterns for the chords I've tabbed (as 
I've only put them down once each). For each 
"phase" of the verse, I have inserted the 
number of the corresponding phase into the 
lyrics approximately where said phase begins. 
Listening to the song while reading this tab 
should make everything clear. Enjoy.

The- King of Spa-----in.


I never knew I was a (1)lover, 
Just cause I steal the things you (2)hide,
Just cause I focus while we're dancing, or 
(3)Just cause I offered you a ride. 

Still I am not from Barcel(1)ona, no.
I am not even from (2)Madrid.
I am a native of the North Pole
(3)And that could mess up any kid.

Well if you could reinvent my name, 
Well if you (oh-h) could redirect my day, 
I wanna be the King of Spain. 

And I will settle in Pampl(1)ona
And I'll provoke the bulls with (2)words
And then I'll send a man to meet them all
(3)But he's fake, so I have heard.

And all the senoritas s(1)ighing, oh
Will be the fountain of my (2)lies.
But while we're floating in siestas
(3)Will you search for bottles and for knives?

Well if you could reinvent my name, 
Well if you (oh-h) could redirect my day,
I wanna be the King of Spain.

[Intro Pts. 1&2]

And I'll wear my boots of Spanish (1)leather
Oh while I'm tightening my (2)crown.
I'll disappear in some flamenco
(3)And perhaps I'll reach the other side. (end on one open strum, not ringing)

Why are you stabbing my (1)illusion?
Oh, just cause I stole some eagle's (2)wings
Because you named me as your lover
(3)Well, I thought I could be anything.

Well if you could reinvent my name,       <-------(Final Chorus)
well if you (oh-h) could redirect my day, 
I wanna be the...King of Spain.

ok can't write tabs, but
the chord with
