[Verse I]
(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

C - D - G - Em    x2

[Verse II]
(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!"

(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 C - D - G - Em x2 [Verse III] (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
(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 G Em But that was when I ruled the world C - Em x3 D x2 C - D - G - Em x2 (Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh) 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 C - D - G - Em Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh
