INTRO: G - A - D - Bm    x2

Bm      G        A
I used to rule the world 
           D                    Bm
Seas would rise when I gave the word 
                     G       A
Now in the morning I sleep alone 
          D                 Bm
Sweep the streets I used to own

G - A - D - Bm    x2

Bm      G         A
I used to roll the dice 
          D                 Bm
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes 
              G            A
Listen as the crowd would sing: 
          D                 Bm
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"


Bm         G        A
One minute I held the key 
         D                    Bm
Next the walls were closed on me 
                          G        A
And I discovered that my castles stand 
     D                    Bm
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand 

  G              A
I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing 
D             Bm
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing 
G                A
Be my mirror, my sword, and shield 
   D                 Bm
My missionaries in a foreign field 
G                 A
For some reason I can't explain 
D                     Bm              G      A
Once you go there was never, never an honest word
         F#m               Bm 
That was when I ruled the world 

G - A - D - Bm    x2

Bm                   G     A
It was the wicked and wild wind 
              D               Bm
Blew down the doors to let me in. 
                          G        A
Shattered windows and the sound of drums 
       D                    Bm
People couldn't believe what I'd become

Bm       G      A
Revolutionaries wait 
        D               Bm
For my head on a silver plate 
                   G      A
Just a puppet on a lonely string
   D                         Bm
Oh who would ever want to be king? 


  G              A
I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing 
D             Bm
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing 
G                A
Be my mirror, my sword, and shield 
   D                 Bm
My missionaries in a foreign field 
G                 A
For some reason I can't explain 
  D                     Bm              
I know Saint Peter won't call my name ,
   G            A 
never an honest word
              F#m               Bm 
But that was when I ruled the world  

G - Bm x3
A x2


G - A - D - Bm    x2
(Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh)

  G              A
I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing 
D             Bm
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing 
G                A
Be my mirror, my sword, and shield 
   D                 Bm
My missionaries in a foreign field 
G                 A
For some reason I can't explain 
  D                     Bm              
I know Saint Peter won't call my name ,
   G            A 
never an honest word
              F#m                Bm 
But that was when I ruled the world  

G - A - F#m - Bm              and fading...
Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh
