Year: 1996 - Album: Elton John by Elton John

  		Intro:  Dm - Dm/C - Bbmaj7 - Am - A7 
        Dm - Dm/C - Bb - Asus - A7 



Dm7                       G           C/G - G   
No man's a jester playing Shakespeare 
F                        G   Gsus4-G   
Round your throne room floor 
          Gm7 
While the juggler's act is danced upon 
A7sus4         A        Dm7  G/D 
The crown that you once wore 



Dm7            G    C/G - G 
And sooner or later 
F                        G   Gsus4-G  
Everybody's kingdom must end 
          Gm7 
And I'm so afraid your courtiers 
A7sus4         A        Dm7    
Cannot be called best friends 



G 
Caesar's had your troubles 
Dm     C      Dm  C-Dm  
Widows had to cry 
G 
While mercenaries in cloisters sing 
E7/G#            Asus4 A7 
And the king must die 




Interlude:  Dm-Dm/C-Bbmaj7-Am-A7 




Dm7                          G      C/G - G  
Some men are better staying sailors 
F                G   Gsus4-G   
Take my word and go 
    Gm7 
But tell the ostler that his name was 
A7sus4              A  Dm7  G/D 
The very first they chose 







Dm7                            G    C/G - G 
And if my hands are stained forever 
F                           G   Gsus4-G  
And the altar should refuse me 
          Gm7 
Would you let me in, would you let me in, would you let me in 
A7sus4       A     Dm7    
Should I cry sanctuary 



G 
Caesar's had your troubles 
Dm     C      Dm  C-Dm  
Widows had to cry 
G 
While mercenaries in cloisters sing 
E7/G#            Asus4 A7 
And the king must die 


Interlude:  Dm-Dm/C-Bbmaj7-Am-A7 (x2) 


Dm7                       G           C/G - G   
No man's a jester playing Shakespeare 
F                        G   Gsus4-G   
Round your throne room floor 
          Gm7 
While the juggler's act is danced upon 
A7sus4         A        Dm7   
The crown that you once wore 



G/D           Dm7  Am-A7 
The king must die

The king must die

The king must die

The king is dead 
Bb   Am   Dsus  D  
Long live the  king
