Viva La Vida  Coldplay

2 measures intro
[C].[D].[G].[Em].      x2

[(Em)]I used to [C]rule the [D]world
Seas would [G]rise when I gave the [Em]word
Now in the morning I [C]sleep al[D]one
Sweep the [G]streets I used to [Em]own
2 measures break
[C].[D].[G].[Em].      x2

[(Em)]I used to [C]roll the d[D]ice
Feel the f[G]ear in my enemy's [Em]eyes
Listen as the [C]crowd would s[D]ing
"Now the o[G]ld king is dead! L[Em]ong live the king!"

[(Em)]One minute I [C]held the [D]key
Next the [G]walls were closed on [Em]me
And I discovered that my c[C]astles st[D]and
Upon [G]pillars of salt 'n p[Em]illars of sand
chorus
I [C]hear Jerusalem [D]bells a ringing
[G]Roman cavalry [Em]choirs are singing
[C]Be my mirror, my [D]sword and shield
My [G]missionaries in a [Em]foreign field

[C]For some reason I [D]can't explain
[G]Once you go there was [Em]never
Never an [C]honest [D]word
And that was [Bm?]when I ruled the [Em]world
2 measures break
[C].[D].[G].[Em]

[(Em)]It was the wicked and [C]wild w[D]ind
Blew down the [G]doors to let me [Em]in
Shattered windows and the [C]sound of [D]drums
People [G]couldn't believe what[Em] I'd become

[(Em)]Revolutio[C]naries [D]wait
For my h[G]ead on a silver [Em]plate
Just a puppet on a [C]lonely [D]string
Oh [G]who would ever want to be [Em]king?
chorus
I [C]hear Jerusalem [D]bells a ringing
[G]Roman cavalry [Em]choirs are singing
[C]Be my mirror, my [D]sword and shield
My [G]missionaries in a [Em]foreign field

[C]For some reason I [D]can't explain
I [G]know Saint Peter will [Em]call my name
Ne[C]ver n'honest [D]word
But that was [Bm]when I ruled the w[Em]orld

[C].[Em]    x3
[D]  x2
Whoa-oh-ohhh oh-[C]ohhh [D]oh
Whoa-oh-ohhh oh-[G]ohhh [Em]oh
Whoa-oh-ohhh oh-[C]ohhh [D]oh
Whoa-oh-ohhh oh-[G]ohhh [Em]oh
chorus
I [C]hear Jerusalem [D]bells a ringing
[G]Roman cavalry [Em]choirs are singing
[C]Be my mirror, my [D]sword and shield
My [G]missionaries in a [Em]foreign field

[C]For some reason I [D]can't explain
I [G]know Saint Peter will [Em]call my name
Ne[C]ver n'honest [D]word
But that was [Bm]when I ruled the w[Em]orld
