[Intro]
C  D  G  Em    2x


[Verse]
(Em)      C        D
I used to rule the world
           G                    Em
Seas would rise when I gave the word
                     C       D
Now in the morning I sleep alone
          G                 Em
Sweep the streets I used to own


[Interlude]
C  D  G  Em   2x


[Verse]
(Em)      C         D
I used to roll the dice
          G                 Em
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
              C            D
Listen as the crowd would sing:
          G                 Em
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"


[Verse]
(Em)         C        D
One minute I held the key
         G                    Em
Next the walls were closed on me
                          C        D
And I discovered that my castles stand
     G                    Em
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand


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


[Interlude]
C  D  G  Em    2x


[Verse]
(Em)                  C     D
It was the wicked and wild wind
              G               Em
Blew down the doors to let me in.
                          C        D
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
       G                    Em
People couldn't believe what I'd become


[Verse]
(Em)     C      D
Revolutionaries wait
        G               Em
For my head on a silver plate
                   C      D
Just a puppet on a lonely string
   G                         Em
Oh who would ever want to be king?


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


[Bridge]
C  Em  3x
D  2x


[Interlude]
C  D  G  Em        2x
(Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh)


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


[Outro]
C   D   G   Em   2x
Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh
