I used to Froll the Gdice
CAm
Feel the Cfear in my enemy's Ameyes
FG
Listen as the Fcrowd would Gsing:
CAm
"Now the Cold king is dead! AmLong live the king!"
FG
One minute I Fheld the Gkey
CAm
Next the Cwalls were closed on Amme
FG
And I discovered that my Fcastles Gstand
CAm
Upon Cpillars of salt and Ampillars of sand
FG
Fhear Jerusalem Gbells are ringing
CAm
CRoman cavalry Amchoirs are singing
FG
FBe my mirror, my Gsword, and shield
CAm
My Cmissionaries in a Amforeign field
FG
FFor some reason I Gcan't explain
CAm
COnce you go there was Amnever
FG
Never an Fhonest Gword
CAm
That was Cwhen I ruled the Amworld

It was the wicked and Fwild Gwind
CAm
Blew down the Cdoors to let me Amin.
FG
Shattered windows and the Fsound of Gdrums
CAm
People Ccouldn't believe what AmI'd become
FG
RevolutionFaries Gwait
CAm
For my Chead on a silver Amplate
FG
Just a puppet on a Flonely Gstring
CAm
Oh Cwho would ever want to be Amking?

But that was Cwhen I ruled the Amworld
