(half step down) No queen shall stand beside his throne
The A chords are frequently varied with Asus2 and A/F# He will have no children to call his own
The Asus2 A Asus2 bit also involves sliding up to the 4th fret and back But the song that he sings intertwines with the fate of us men
A E Esus4 E The song that he signs he'll forever sing it alone
The King prefers to sit alone
A E Esus4 E Lie lie lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie lie lie
Out of the range of the spray and the foam Lie lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie lie lie
C#m C#m7 Asus2 A Asus2 Lie lie lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie lie lie lie... lie lie lielie
And his hounds and his men might come hunting once again Lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie lielie lie lie lie.. lie
A E Esus4 E E Esus4 E
Never shall they ever venture to take him from home Asus2 E
He's packed his bags and he's ready to go
From clay he shaved his humble throne Asus2 E
With his callused hands he called it his own His time has come and I think that he knows
And those traitorous waves steal it time and again C#m C#m7 Asus2 A Asus2
They'll keep on pushing him farther up into the stone And I shake for I shall never see him ever again
Asus2 E
Lie lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie lie lie But oh, my king, you prefer to go it alone
Lie lie lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie lie lie
Lie lie lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie lie lie lie.. lie lie lie.. lie lie
Lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie lie.. lielie
His beard is greyed and his hands are cold
His crown is dented and his boots have grown bold
Ah, but he sings with a passionate voice made for a wren
It's the most beautiful song that a mortal can ever behold
Lie lie lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie lie lie
Lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie lie lie
Lie lie lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie lie lie lie... lie lie lie lielie
Lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie.. lie lie lie.. lie
