The second guitar basically plays G and C through the whole intro.

[Verse 1]
G    C          G             C
Sun down in the paris of the prairies
G     C           G            C
Wheat kings have all their treasures burried.
G     C                  G     C
And all you hear are the rusty breezes
G       C          G         C
Pushing around the weather vane Jesus

[Verse 2]

In his Zippo lighter he sees the killer's face

Or maybe it's someone standing in a killer's place

20 years for nothing, well thats nothing knew...besides

No one's interested in something ya didn't do.

[Chorus]
D               G             C
Wheat Kings and pretty things.
D                       G            C
Let's just see what the morning brings

[Verse 3]

Theres a dream he dreams where the high school is dead and stark

It's a museum and we're all locked up in it after dark,

the walls are lined all yellow grey and sinister

hung with pictures of our parent's prime minister's

[Chorus]
D               G             C
Wheat Kings and pretty things.
D                       G            C
Let's just see what the morning brings

[Verse 4]
Late breaking story on the CBC

A nation whispers "we always knew that he'd go free"

And ya can't be fond of living in the past.

Cuz if you are then there's no way that you're gonna last

[Chorus]
D               G             C
Wheat Kings and pretty things.
D                       G            C
Let's just see what the morning brings

[2nd time]
D                C
Wheat kings and pretty things
                  G    C
Oh that's what tomorrow brings
