GDCE DCG CG
G                D                    C         E
Far away in a distant land lived the King of thieves
        D              C              G             C  G
he possessed many treasures, but was always evaded by love
G                     D              C        E       D
Not for the want of trying, though never to succeed, it
                         C          G           C   G
seemed he could steal anything except for this one need.
G                 D                   C                   E
Then one day back in his lair he did discover and he did curse
   D                  C          G           C   G
another with light fingers had robbed him of his purse,
G                 D        C             E        D
so back into the city and long into the night he hunted
                C                        G    C   G
the soul who should be so sly, with his cash to alight.
        E    D        C        G
Oh the King of the thieves was he
      E            D
Easy come and easy go
     C            G        DCE DCGCG
The King of the Thieves.
G                              D           C            E
He rattled his mind for recollections of that previous day,
            D                   C                 G                    C    G    G
then that vision of the fair maiden brushed past him in that oh so peculiar way, well
                       D      C            E          D
of course, it was so obvious and plain to see, for if he
     C         G    C   G
was king, then she must be
         E    D        E         G
Oh the Queen of the thieves was she
       E            D
Easy come and easy go
      C             G
The Queen of the thieves.
G                    D                C                   E
Sure enough the following day their paths were to cross again
              D                       C
well he followed her through the courtyard
  G        C   G     G         D      C            E
amused by her gain, gold and silver coins of the realm.
      D                      C
She seemed to have magic fingers as
            G          C   G
into many pockets all did fell.
         E    D        C         G
Oh the Queen of the thieves was she
      E            D
Easy come and easy go
      C             G     CG
The Queen of the Thieves.
G                D            C                E
Soon both grew hungry and so into the tavern divine
     D            C                 G         G    G   G
to drink of the local ale and sing badly out of time, into
        D              C                E         D
each others eyes, and into each others arms, the spell
              C            G           C    G      G
of love cast over them, embraced by their charms. They
                          D             C
amassed between them a fortune and by night they
              E          D                 C         G
threw it all away, they had no cares or worries for love
            C   G
would save the day.
        E         D         C          G
Oh the King and Queen of thieves were they,
       E           D
Easy come and easy go
     C                 G        CG
The King and Queen of Thieves.
G                  D             C                   E
Then one year and one day precisely on the witching hour
     D         C                 G
a child came unto them, but one arm shrivelled as a 
 C     G      G                         D
dead flower. The Queen did cry and the King did weep
            C                      E     D
and they searched the world for a cure, swearing
          C                        G
never to steal again of this one thing they could
C   G
be sure.
        E        D              C          G
Oh the King and Queen of the thieves were they
      E             D
Easy come and easy go
      C                  G       CG
The King and Queen of Thieves.
G                         D           C           E
Finally word came of a medicine man way up in the hills
      D                  C       G                C    G
of a cure they could be sure, if only they kept their word.
 G                       D            C
Around the smouldering couldron they sat as he
    E         D                       E
chanted, then he poured onto the child's stricken arm a
  G                      G       G              D
potion from his magic lantern. Sure enough the arm
              C                 E          D
did heal and all the birds did sing, then the palm
                      C                   G
of the child's hand opened wide to reveal the
              C     G
midwife's wedding ring.
         E     D    C        G
Oh the Prince of thieves was he
       E            D
Easy come and easy go
      C             G
The Legend of the Thief.
        E      D       C         G
Oh the King, Queen, Prince of Thieves
       E            D
Easy come and easy go
       C            G
The Legend of the Thief
