Intro (Rhythm Pattern #1): G A7sus4 D7M D6 (x2)


Verse 1 (Rhythm Pattern #2):
          G        A7sus4  
I used to rule the world
           D7M                  D6
Seas would rise when I gave the word
                     G      A7sus4  
Now in the morning I sleep alone
          D7M               D6
Sweep the streets I used to own


Interlude: Rhythm Pattern #1 (x2)


Verse 2 (Rhythm Pattern #2):
I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"


Verse 3 (Rhythm Pattern #2):
One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand


Chorus (Rhythm Pattern #1):
I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can't explain
Once you go there was never
Never an honest word
And that was when I ruled the world


Verse 4 (Rhythm Pattern #2):
It was the wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People couldn't believe what I'd become


Verse 5 (Rhythm Pattern #2):
Revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh, who would ever wanna be king?


Chorus (Rhythm Pattern #1):
I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can't explain
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world


Interlude (Rhythm Pattern #1): Oh oh oh oh oh oh (x4)


Chorus (Rhythm Pattern #1):
I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can't explain
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world
