E                        D                  A                E
Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth and taste
                          D                       A                         E
I've been around for long, long years I've stolen many a man's soul and faith
                     D                  A/C# A                E 
I was around when Jesus Christ had His moment of doubt and pain
                      D                 A/C# A                  E  Esus4 E
I made damn sure that Pilate washed his hands and sealed his fate

B                                     A E       A/E  E     
Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my  name, 
           B                E/B B           A   E    Esus4  E
but what's puzzling you, is the  nature of my game

                 D                 A                            E 
Stuck around St. Petersburg when I saw it was a time for a change
                        D               A/C# A                E
Killed the Tzar and his ministers; Anastasia  screamed in vain
                        D                        A/C#   A
I rode a tank held a general's rank when the blitzkrieg raged
          E             Esus4    E
and the bodies stank

B                                     A E       A/E  E     
Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my  name,  Oh    yeah  
          B                E/B B               E    A/E    E
Ah what's puzzling you, is the  nature of my game

E                                 D                            A/C# A                 E 
 I watched with glee while your kings and queens fought for ten   decades for the gods they made
Esus4 E                            D               A/C#             E           Esus4    E
    I shouted out, "Who killed the Kennedys?" when after all it was you and me

                       D              A/C# A                 E   Esus  E
Let me please introduce myself I'm a man   of wealth and taste 
                     D                   A/C#                          E        Esus4   E     
And I laid traps for troubadours who get killed before they reached Bombay

B                                     A E       Esus4   E     
Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my  name,   Oh      yeah  
           B                E/B B           A   E    A/E    E
But what's puzzling you, is the  nature of my game              Well get down

E chord should be played at end and start of each line, this shows to only play the E chord at the end.
