VIVA LA VIDA        COLDPLAY

Capo 1st Fret

C  D  G  Em (x2)

           C        D
I used to rule the world 
            G                   Em
Seas would rise when I gave the word 
                       C     D
Now in the morning I sweep alone 
             G              Em
Sweep the streets I used to own

C  D  G  Em (x2)

           C        D
I used to roll the dice 
          G                 Em
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes 
                C          D
Listen as the crowd would sing: 
         G                 Em
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"


              C        D
One minute I held the key 
          G                   Em
Next the walls were closed on me 
                          C        D
And I discovered that my castles stand 
      G                   Em
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand 


Chorus:
   C              D
I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing 
 G             Em
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing 
 C                 D
Be my mirror, my sword, and shield 
    G                 Em
My missionaries in a foreign field 
 C                 D
For some reason I can't explain 
G                     Em               C      D
Once you go there was never, never an honest word
          Bm               Em 
That was when I ruled the world 

C  D  G  Em  (x2)

                       C    D
It was the wicked and wild wind 
               G              Em
Blew down the doors to let me in. 
                           C         D
Shattered windows and the sound of drums 
        G                    Em
People couldn't believe what I'd become

          C      D
Revolutionaries wait 
        G                Em
For my head on a silver plate 
                    C        D
Just a puppet on a lonely string
    G                         Em
Oh who would ever want to be king? 

Chorus:
   C              D
I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing 
 G             Em
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing 
 C                 D
Be my mirror, my sword, and shield 
    G                 Em
My missionaries in a foreign field 
 C                 D
For some reason I can't explain 
    G                     Em              
I know Saint Peter won't call my name ,
          C      D 
never an honest word
              Bm               Em 
But that was when I ruled the world  


C Em C Em C Em D-D D-D D D-D D-D D (x2)



C  D  G  Em  (x2)
(Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh)


Chorus:
   C              D
I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing 
 G             Em
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing 
 C                 D
Be my mirror, my sword, and shield 
   G                 Em
My missionaries in a foreign field 
C                 D
For some reason I can't explain 
  G                     Em              
I know Saint Peter won't call my name ,
          C      D 
Never an honest word
              Bm              Em 
But that was when I ruled the world  

C    D Bm     Em              
Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh ( Repeat to fade )
