I've been around for long, long years I've stolen many a man's soul and faith

Stuck around St. Petersburg when I saw it was a time for a change

 BAE
   hope you guessed my name
 BE/BAEE/AE
But what's confusing you is just the nature of my game  
 DA/C#AE
Just as every cop is a criminal and all    the sinners saints 
 AEDA/C#AE
 As heads is tails just call me Lucifer 'cause I'm in need   of some restraint 
 AEDA/C#AE
So if you meet me, have some courtesy have some sympathy and some taste
 DA/C#AEEsus4E
Use all your well-learned politesse or I'll lay your soul to waste  
 BE/B
  Pleased to meet you      Hope you guessed my name, um yeah
 BAEA/EE
  hope you guessed my name  
 BE/BAEE/AE
But what's puzzling you is just the nature of my game

Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name, but what's puzzling you, is the

I killed the Tzar and his ministers, Anastasia screamed in vain
I rode a tank, held a gen'ral's rank, when the blitzkrieg raged and the

I watched with glee while your kings and queens, fought for ten decades for
the gods they made
I shouted out "Who killed the Kennedys?", when after all it was you and me
So let me please introduce myself, I am a man of wealth and taste
And I lay traps for troubadours, who get killed before they reach Bombay
Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name, but what's puzzling you, is the

Hey is this the right chord placement for this song. I am just
going off from what I heard on the radio the other day. I don't have
a recording of the song.
Please make corrections if there are any.
Thanks guys.....
