GDGD
 He had white horses and ladies by the score
 GDGD
 All dressed in satin and waiting by the door

Chorus
 AmEm7D
 Ooh what a lucky man he was
 AmEm7D
 Ooh what a lucky man he was

 GDGD
 White lace and feathers they made up his bed
 GDGD
 A gold covered mattress on which he was led

Chorus

 GDGD
 He went to fight wars for his country and his king
 GDGD
 Of his honor and his glory the people would sing

Chorus

 GDGD
 A bullet had found him, his blood ran as he cried
 GDGD
 No money could save him so he lay down and he died

Chorus

Consider this to "bring out the flavor":

G: 3x0033; Altered G: 3x20035; D: 2x0235

I brush the g and d together, then pick the rest like you do. I hammer on from d note to e, to enter the second chord. Similarly, I lift off e to d for the 3rd chord then brush the f# note an d together.

Actually I think its Em7 for the chorus

jimbo limbo (report comment to admin):
I always played it G for the Em7. It fits withthe lead riff better.
