TUNED HALF STEP DOWN - Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb

INTRO: D - E - A - F#m    x2

(F#m)      D        E
I used to rule the world 
           A                    F#m
Seas would rise when I gave the word 
                     D       E
Now in the morning I sleep alone 
          A                 F#m
Sweep the streets I used to own

D - E - A - F#m    x2

(F#m)      D         E
I used to roll the dice 
          A                 F#m
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes 
              D            E
Listen as the crowd would sing: 
          A                 F#m
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"


(F#m)         D        E
One minute I held the key 
         A                    F#m
Next the walls were closed on me 
                          D        E
And I discovered that my castles stand 
     A                    F#m
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand 

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

D - E - A - F#m    x2

(F#m)                 D    E
It was the wicked and wild wind 
              A               F#m
Blew down the doors to let me in. 
                          D        E
Shattered windows and the sound of drums 
       A                     F#m
People couldn't believe what I'd become

(F#m)    D      E
Revolutionaries wait 
        A               F#m
For my head on a silver plate 
                   D      E
Just a puppet on a lonely string
   A                         F#m
Oh who would ever want to be king? 


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

D - F#m x3
E x2


D - E - A - F#m    x2
(Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh)

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

D - E - C#m - F#m              and fading...
Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh
