King of the World

Steely Dan

[Am7] Hello [Bm7] one and[E]all
[Am7] Was it [Bm7] you I[E]used to know?
[Am7] Can't you [Bm7] hear me[E]call
[Am7] On this [Bm7] old ham[E]radio?
[Am7] All I've [Bm7] got to[E] say
[Am7] I'm [Bm7] alive and [E] feeling fine
[Am7] Should you[Bm7] come [E] my way
[Am7] You can[Bm7] share my [E] poison wine

[Bm7]No marigolds in the promised [Cmaj7] land,
[C]There's a hole in the [G] ground where they[D]used to grow
[Bm7]Any man left on the[Cmaj7] Rio Grande
[Em7]Is the[D]king of the world as far as[A]I know

I won't take your bread
I don't need no helping hand
I can't be no savage
I can't be no highwayman
Show me where you are
You and I can will this day
Driving in my car
Through the ruins of Santa Fe

[Chorus]

[Instrumental break]

[Am7] [Bm7] [E] [Am7] [Bm7] [Cmaj7] [Fmaj7] [Em7] [D#maj7] [Dm7] [C#maj7] [Cm7] [F]

[Am7I'm reading[Em7]last years papers
[Am7]Although[Em7]I don't know why
[Am7]Assassins, cons and[Em7]rapers
[C]Might as[G]well[A]die

When you come around
No more pain and no regrets
Watch the sun go brown
Smoking cobalt cigarettes

There's no need to hide
Taking things the easy way
If I stay inside
I might live till Saturday

No marigolds in the promised land
There's a hole in the ground where they used to grow
Any man left of the Rio Grande
Is the king of the world
King of the world as far as I know

You know it is.....THANKS! (leroy777@mindspring.com)
