Bruce Springsteen's cover version of Lorde's hit "Royals" which he played at Auckland 03/02/2014. 

Capo 5th fret
Double Drop D Tuning: D-A-D-G-B-D

Chords used in song:

D2:           000230
Cadd9:        030030
[ch]G6/E[/ch] (G6):    020030

In parts of this song Springsteen thumps his palm on the bridge of the 
guitar to keep the beat while holding down the selected chord. 
I've marked this parts as "PT", Palm Thump.
For example, if it stands G6 PT-3, you're going to thump on the bridge 
of the guitar three times while holding down the G6 chord.

The song goes in 3/4 time. Please contact me or look at Bruce's 
performance of the song if you need help 
figuring out the Palm Thumping parts.


Intro (with harp): 

D2 - D2 - D2 - Cadd9 - G6 x4



VERSE:


                  D2
I've never seen a diamond in the flesh

                                      Cadd9
I cut my teeth on wedding rings       in the movies 

D2
And I'm not proude of my address    

  
In this torned up town, in this torned up town



PRE-CHORUS:

D2
And every song's like goold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom


blood stains, ball gowns, thrashin' the hotel room

Cadd9         G6
I don't care, baby I don't care

                 D2
Everybody's like cristal, maybach, diamonds on your time piece


Jet planes, island, tigers on a gold leash

Cadd9         G6                                 PT-3
I don't care, I'm not caught up in your love affair


CHORUS:

                       D2
And I'll never be royal        Don't run in our blood

Cadd9                                   G6
That kind just ain't for us, we crave a different kind of love 

               D2                             
Let me be your ruler,      You can call me King B

              Cadd9            G6(         Quit playing        )    
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule          In my fantasy


Instrumental (with harp):

D2 - D2 - D2 - Cadd9 - G6 

D2 - D2 - Cadd9 



VERSE:

(Cadd9)        D2
My friends and I we cracked the code 

                                           Cadd9
We count our dollars on the train       to the party

                 D2       
And everyone who knows us knows


That we're fine with this, we didn't come from money


PRE-CHORUS:

D2
And every fucking song's like goold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the 
bathroom


blood stains, ball gowns, thrashin' the hotel room

Cadd9         G6
I don't care, I drive a cadillac in my dreams

                     D2
And Everybody's like cristal, maybach, diamonds on your time piece


Jet planes, island, tigers on a gold leash

Cadd9         G6                                 PT-3
I don't care, I'm not caught up in your love affair




CHORUS:

                       D2
And I'll never be royal        Don't run in our blood
