Cm7             Fm7         Gm7       F 
------ And they wandered in from  the city  

      Ab          Dm7  Cm7 
of St.John without a  dime ------------- 

Cm7             Fm7         Gm7         F 
 ---- Wearing coats that shine both red and        

      Ab                      Dm7   Cm7   
green colors from their sunny is -- land ---- 

Cm7             Fm7         Gm7           F 
---- From their boats of iron they looked upon 
  
        Ab                      Dm7  Cm7 
--- the promised land where surely -- life was sweet.  

Cm7         Fm7       Gm7      F             
---- On the rising tide to New York --  

         Ab             Dm7   Cm7  
City did they ride into the   street ----- 

           Fm7      Ebmaj7   Dm7        
See the glo--ry ,see the --- glo -- ry  

Ab     Gm    Cm7  
of the royal scam. --------- 



verse 2 : 


Cm7          Fm7         Gm7       F 
  They are hounded down to the bottom  

      Ab          Dm7  Cm7 
of a bad town amid the ruins  

Cm7            Fm7         Gm7         F 
  where they learn to fear an angry race  

         Ab                   Dm7  Cm7 
of fallen kings their dark companions  
  
Cm7             Fm7         Gm7           F 
while the memory of their southern sky  

         Ab             Dm7   Cm7 
was clouded by a savage winter  

Cm7         Fm7       Gm7      F   
  Every patron saint hung on the wall,  

         Ab             Dm7   Cm7  
shared the room with twenty sinners  

           Fm7      Ebmaj7   Dm7  
See the glo--ry ,see the --- glo -- ry  

Ab     Gm    Cm7  
Of the royal scam  



verse 3 : 


Cm7          Fm7         Gm7          F 
 By the blackened wall he does it all  

      Ab                  Dm7    Cm7 
 he thinks he's died and gone to heaven  

Cm7            Fm7         Gm7         F 
Now the tale is told by the old man  

      Ab           Dm7     Cm7 
back home he reads the letter  

Cm7             Fm7      Gm7     F   
   How they are paid in gold jst to babble   
  
            Ab              Dm7          Cm7               
in he back room all night and waste their time  


Cm7             Fm7         Gm7       F 
------ And they wandered in from  the city  

      Ab          Dm7  Cm7 
of St.John without a  dime  

           Fm7      Ebmaj7   Dm7  
See the glo--ry ,see the --- glo -- ry  

Ab     Gm    Cm7  
Of the royal scam .
