Intro:  Dm - Dm/C - Bbmaj7 - Am - A7
        Dm - Dm/C - Bb - Asus - A7



Dm7                       G           C/G - G  
No man's a jester playing Shakespeare
F                        G   Gsus4-G  
Round your throne room floor
          Gm7
While the juggler's act is danced upon
A7sus4         A        Dm7  G/D
The crown that you once wore



Dm7            G    C/G - G
And sooner or later
F                        G   Gsus4-G 
Everybody's kingdom must end
          Gm7
And I'm so afraid your courtiers
A7sus4         A        Dm7   
Cannot be called best friends



G
Caesar's had your troubles
Dm     C      Dm  C-Dm 
Widows had to cry
G
While mercenaries in cloisters sing
[ch]E7/G#[/ch]            Asus4 A7
And the king must die




Interlude:  Dm-Dm/C-Bbmaj7-Am-A7




Dm7                          G      C/G - G 
Some men are better staying sailors
F                G   Gsus4-G  
Take my word and go
    Gm7
But tell the ostler that his name was
A7sus4              A  Dm7  G/D
The very first they chose







Dm7                            G    C/G - G
And if my hands are stained forever
F                           G   Gsus4-G 
And the altar should refuse me
          Gm7
Would you let me in, would you let me in, would you let me in
A7sus4       A     Dm7   
Should I cry sanctuary



G
Caesar's had your troubles
Dm     C      Dm  C-Dm 
Widows had to cry
G
While mercenaries in cloisters sing
[ch]E7/G#[/ch]            Asus4 A7
And the king must die

Round your throne room floor
          Gm7
While the juggler's act is danced upon
A7sus4         A        Dm7  
The crown that you once wore
