 F#F#BmF#EEF#BmF#F#BmF#E
 BmF#
 Play me old king cole
 EF#
 That I may join with you,
 AD
All your hearts now seem so far from me
 A
It hardly seems to matter now.

 BmF#
 And the nurse will tell you lies
 EF#
Of a kingdom beyond the skies.
 AD
But I am lost within this half-world,
 A
It hardly seems to matter 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 \

 Just a little bit,
Just a little bit more time,
Time left to live out my life.
 Am
la la la la la la la la la la

 AmC#mAmC#mAmA
 E
 Play me my song.
 F#
 Here it comes again.
 E
 Play me my song.
 F#
 Here it comes again.

 F#mB
 Old king cole was a merry old soul,
 DF#m
And a merry old soul was he.
So he called for his pipe,
 B
And he called for his bowl,
 DF#m
And he called for his fiddlers three.

 F#mE
 But the clock, tick-tock,
 D
On the mantlepiece -
And I want, and I feel, and I know, and I touch,
 EF#
 Her warmth...

E F# x4

 F# x4
 EDF#D#m
                                     Shes a lady, shes got time,
 F#EF#
 Brush back your hair, and let me get to know your face.
 D#m
 Shes a lady, she is mine.
 F#EF#
 Brush back your hair, and let me get to know your flesh.

 F#BC#F#BC#
 F#D#mBbmG#m
 Ive been waiting here for so long
 F#
And all this time has passed me by
 BF#
 It doesnt seem to matter now

 F#BC#F#BC#
    You stand there with your fixed expression    
 F#D#mBbmG#m
 Casting doubt on all I have to say.
 F#EF#
Why dont you touch me, touch me,
 EF#EF#EF#EF#
 Why dont you touch me, touch me,
B ( E F# E B E F# E F# E B E B ) - repeat several times
Touch me now, now, now, now, now...
 BC#F#
 F# C# 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,
