If I Ruled the World  Tony Bennett

[Dm7]If [CM7] I ruled the [CM7/6]world, [CM7]
Ev'ry [Gm7]day would [C7]be the [Bm7-5]first day of s[E7/9]pring,
[Bm7/5]Ev'ry h[E7/9]eart would have a [Am]new song to s[Am+7]ing,[Am7]
And we'd [Am6]sing of the [Em7]joy ev'ry [Cdim]morning would br[Dm7]ing.[G7]
[Dm7]If I[CM7] ruled the wo[CM7/6]rld, [CM7]
Ev'ry [Gm7]man would [C7]be as [Bm7-5]free as a [E7/9]bird,
[Bm7/5]Ev'ry v[E7/9]oice would be a v[Am]oice to be h[Am+7]eard -[Am7]
Take my [Am6]word, we [Em7]would treasure each[Cdim] day that oc[Dm7]curred.[E9]
My [AM7]world [F#m] would be a [Bm7]beautiful p[E7]lace,
Where we would [AM7]weave such [AM7/6]wonderful dr[Dm7]eams;[G7]
My w[CM7]orld [Am7] would wear a s[Dm7]mile on its f[G7]ace,
Like the [Am]man in the [Am+7]moon w[Am7]hen the [F#m7]moon bea[Dm7]ms. *[G7]
[Dm7]If [CM7]I ruled the w[CM7/6]orld, [CM7]
Ev'ry [Gm7]man would [C7]say the [Bm7-5]world was his f[E7/9]riend,
[Bm7/5]There'd be [E7/9]happiness that [Am]no man could[Am+7] end;[Am7]
No, my f[Am6]riend, not if[Em7] I [Em7-5]ruled the[A7sus4] world.[A7]
[A7+5]Ev'ry [Dm]head would be [Dm+7]held up [G7]high,
There'd be [CM7]sunshine in[Cdim] ev'ryone's [A7]sky,
If the [Dm7]day ever [FM7]dawned when[Dm7] I r[G7]uled the w[CM7]orld.
