King of Bohemia
by Richard Thompson
copyright (c) 1994 Beeswing Music
I leant out my copy of Mirror Blue, so this is pretty much guaranteed
to be inaccurate. Still I think it gives a feel for the style and
could be useful in conjunction with the recording on the album Mirror
Blue.
[G/D]Let me rock you [D]in my arms
And [G/B]hold you safe and [D]small,
A [G/D]refu[D/A]gee from the [Bm]sera[D]phim
In your [G/D]rich girl rags and [D]all.
Did your [Bm]dreams die [Asus9]young
Were they [G]too hard [D/F#]won
Did you [Em]reach too [A5]high and [G]fall
And there [Bm]is no [Asus9]rest
For the [G]ones God [D/F#]blessed
And he [Em]blessed [D/F#]you [G]best [A5]of [G/B]all.[D]
for lyrics to other verses see the album...
Verse accompaniment: First 8 measures are flexible: keep the bass notes
on the important beats, change the rest each verse. Mm9-16 are played
pretty much the same each time except m12 which changes each verse.
