Ozymandias

	  		

Tuning: D Standard 


VERSE 

Em 
I met a traveller from an antique land 

                                          C 
Who said: "Two vast and trunkless legs of stone 

                     Em 
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand 


Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown 

    C                Am 
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command... 


Chorus 

G                 D/F#               C 
"Nothing beside remains. Round the decay 

                                             G 
Of that colossal wreck, (boundless and bare) boundless and bare, 

    D/F#                         C 
The lone and level sands stretch far away." 

Em                    D/F#                  Em 
Nothing left, there's nothing left, there's nothing. 


verse 2 

   Em 
...Tell that its sculptor well those passions read 

             C 
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, 

    Em 
The hand that mocked them and the heart that  

    C        
And on the pedestal these words appear: 

G              D/F#     C 
'My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings: 

     G            D/F#              C      Em   D/F# 
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!' 


Chorus 2 

G                D/F#               C 
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay 

                                             G 
Of that colossal wreck, (boundless and bare) boundless and bare, 

    D/F#                         C 
The lone and level sands stretch far away." 

Em                    D/F#         
Nothing left, there's nothing left, 

Em                    D/F#         
Nothing left, there's nothing left, 

Em                    D/F#            G 
Nothing left, there's nothing left at all. 



Excerpt from The Network  

G                           G                    D               C 
We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, 

                                            C                           
and we sit watching our TV's while some local newscaster tells us that 

Asus4                G 
today we had fifteen  

Repeat riff 
homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that's the way it's supposed to be. 
We know things are bad - worse than bad. They're crazy. 
It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out anymore. 
We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, 
and all we say is, 'Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. 
Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won't say anything. 
Just leave us alone.' Well, I'm not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get mad! 
You've got to say, 'I'm a HUMAN BEING, God damn it! My life has VALUE!' 
I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, 
'I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!' 


Chorus 3 

G                D/F#               C 
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay 

                                             G 
Of that colossal wreck, (boundless and bare) boundless and bare, 

    D/F#                         C 
The lone and level sands stretch far away." (boundless and bare) 

G                                 D/F# 
Nothing left (boundless and bare) Nothing left, 

                   C 
The lone and level sands stretch far away." 

    G              D/F#              C 
The lone and level sands stretch far away." 


NOTES: 

a) This version is in the key of the original recording, 
   but can be played in E-standard if desired. 
b) I transcribed this by ear and some chords may be slightly off, 
   buts it's a workable rendition. Corrections welcome. 
c) This song is perfect for two people to play, due to the overlapping 
   vocals and fills scattered throughout the bridge especially.
