[Verse 1]

                 Em                   Am
It's good to be king, if just for a while
                 Dsus2                    Em
To be there in velvet, yeah to give 'em a smile
                  Em                 Am
It's good to get high and never come down
                  Dsus2                   Em  (riff)
It's good to be king of your own little town

Yeah the world would swing oh if I were king
C G D                   C G Em         A               Asus  A
     Can I help it if I       still dream time to time


[Verse 2]

It's good to be king and have your own way
Get a feeling of peace at the end of the day
And when your bulldog barks and your canary sings
You're out there with winners, it's good to be king


[Chorus 2]

Yeah, I'll be king when dogs get wings
Can I help it if I still dream time to time

(guitar solo over verse chords)


[Verse 3]

It's good to be king and have your own world
It helps to make friends, it's good to meet girls
A sweet little queen, who can't run away
It's good to be king, whatever it pays   (no riff)


[Chorus 3]

C G D               C G D
     Excuse me if I      have some place in my mind
C G Em          A             Asus  A  Asus  A  Asus  A
      Where I go time to time

Good tab of a great song!

I'd suggest using a Dsus2 (x-x-0-2-3-0) in the verses, which makes this "e" ring out over all the chords, like Petty does too.

Yes, that Dsus2 is what I see him play in the videos!

In the Chorus during the CDG, CDEm parts

there is this
bit of a riff that I never heard in the studio version, but
on the Live at Gatorville 30th Anniversary video it is very noticable.
Great Live Song as are most of TPaTH songs.
