[Bm]Play me old king [F#]cole
[E]That I may join with [F#]you,
All your h[A]earts now seem so f[D]ar from me
It hardly seems to [A]matter now.

[Bm]And the nurse will tell you [F#]lies
Of a k[E]ingdom beyond the s[F#]kies.
But I am l[A]ost within this ha[D]lf-world,
It hardly seems to m[A]atter now.
[E]Play me my song.
[F#]Here it comes again.
[E]Play me my song.
[F#]Here it comes again.
F#m F#m F#m G \

[F#m]    [F#m]    [F#m]    [G]                         
[F#m]Just a little bit,
Just a little bit more time,
Time left to live out my life.
la la la la [Am]la la la la la la

[Am]   [C#m]    [Am]   [C#m]    [Am]    [A]                   
[E]Play me my song.
[F#]Here it comes again.
[E]Play me my song.
[F#]Here it comes again.

[F#m]Old king cole was a [B]merry old soul,
And a m[D]erry old soul wa[F#m]s he.
So he called for his pipe,
And he [B]called for his bowl,
And he [D]called for his fiddlers [F#m]three.

[F#m]But the clock, tick-[E]tock,
On the ma[D]ntlepiece -
And I want, and I feel, and I know, and I touch,
[E]Her w[F#]armth...

E F# x4
[E]E [D]F#[F#] x4
[E]  [D]  [F#]                                [D#m]Shes a lady, shes got time,
[F#]Brush back your hair, a[E]nd let me get to know your [F#]face.
[D#m]Shes a lady, she is mine.
[F#]Brush back your hair, an[E]d let me get to know your [F#]flesh.

[F#]   [B]  [C#]   [F#]     [B]  [C#]                      
[F#]Ive been [D#m]waiting [Bbm]here for s[G#m]o long
And all this [F#]time has passed me by
[B]It doesnt seem to matter no[F#]w

[F#]   [B]You stand there [C#]with your fixed exp[F#]ression [B]  [C#]
[F#]Casting [D#m]doubt on all I [Bbm]have to s[G#m]ay.
Why dont you [F#]touch me, tou[E]ch[F#] me,
[E]Why d[F#]ont y[E]ou touch m[F#]e, [E]to[F#]uch[E] m[F#]e,
B ( E F# E B E F# E F# E B E B ) - repeat several times
Touch me now, now, now, now, now...
[B]F#[C#] C#[F#] F# C# x4 --- (very fast)
[F#]    [C#]    [F#]    [F#]   [C#]      [F#]                
--------------------------------------------------------


(I recommend to play the last part like that,
otherwise the fast part wouldn't be playable:)

E  - 7-7-9-9-9-7
F# - 9-9-11-11-11-9
B  - 7-9-9-8-7-7
C# - 9-11-11-10-9-9


But the last F# chord play on 2-4-4-3-2-2, but I think it's obvious ;)

Anyway this is one of my favourite Genesis songs, I know that my work is not
100% correct, but makes it able to play and sing at once, I hope you'll

enjoy
as much as I do,
