"King of Hearts" by Lucinda Williams 

CAPO UP 2nd Fret
When you see G/F# means to "walk down"
From G to Em using only the Low E string 
for a Bass Run like G->F#->E

Since I use the app on a phone,
I've tried to make the size 
of the lines "Mobile Friendly"
so you can use a reasonable sized font


Technically it's in the key of A,
But since it's capo'd I'm writing it
by chord shape as though the key were G.
This allows for all easy open chord shapes.
3/4 Waltz time

From "Happy Woman Blues"
Folkways Records FTS 31067 1980

Lucinda Williams lead vocals and acoustic guitar
Mickey White acoustic rhythm and lead guitars, harmony vocals
Rex Bell electric bass and harmony vocals
Andre Matthews electric rhythm, lead and slide guitars

PURCELL, CAMILLE / WILLIAMS, JEROME

Verse/Chorus 1:

Em                  C
Can you relieve me, baby
D                         Am
Take your heart from your sleeve
C                 G
And put it on the line
C                        G
Put it right here beside mine

Em                   C
I can't seem to read you 
D           Am
most of the time
C                     G
Don't you know that I need you
C                G
Will you ever be mine

C         D
Love is a gamble
G         G/F#      Em
I knew it from the start
C                      D
Who ever's holding the cards
G                  G/F#     Em 
please deal me the King of Hearts
C                  D       G
Please deal me the King of Hearts

SOLO (Optional) Em C D Am C G C G

Verse/Chorus 2:

Em                C
If you came to my door
D                    Am
And you asked me for more 
C              G
I'd lay down beside you
C           G
I'd never deny you

Em                   C
And if I had lots of silver
D                Am 
I'd give some to you
C                    G
And if I had lots of gold
C                     G 
I'd make a rich man of you

C             D
Every time I see you
G                G/F#   Em
I want to fall in love again
C               D
I would like to free you
G                 G/F#     G
but you won't even let me in
C              D      G
You won't even let me in

Verse/Chorus 1:

Em                  C
Can you relieve me, baby
D                         Am
Take your heart from your sleeve
C                 G
And put it on the line
C                        G
Put it right here beside mine

Em                   C
I can't seem to read you 
D           Am
most of the time
C                     G
Don't you know that I need you
C                G
Will you ever be mine

C         D
Love is a gamble
G         G/F#      Em
I knew it from the start
C                     D
Whoever's holding the cards
G                  G/F#     Em 
please deal me the King of Hearts
C                  D       G
Please deal me the King of Hearts
