Capo 1

[verse 1]

          C        D
I used to rule the world 
G                           Em
seas would rise when I gave the word
           C              D
Now in the morning I sleep alone
G                            Em
Sweep the streets that I used to own

[Verse 2] 

          C    D
I used to roll the dice
G                   Em
Feel the fear in my enemies eyes
               C     D
Listen how the crowd would sing
G                          Em
Now The Old King Is Dead , Long Live The King


             C       D             
One minute I had the key
         G                    Em
next the walls were closed on me
                         C       D
And I discovered that my castles stand
     G                   Em
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand


  C              D
I hear Jerusalem bells ringing
G             Em
Roman cavalry choirs are singing
C             D
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
G                  Em
My missionary in a foreign field
C                 D
For some reason I cant explain
G               Em
Once you'd gone there was never
         C      D
Never an honest word
             G                Em
And that was when I ruled the world.
