Write me if you use this.


Note:  the timing of the words to the chord changes is
approximate, because the singer uses very elastic phrasing.
This is how I do it.


[verse]
D                      A
When I think of heaven
Bm         A                 D
Deliver me in a black-winged bird
A          Bm     A           D               A
I think of flying down into a sea of pens and feathers
Bm            A              D                 A
And all other instruments of faith and sex and God
                  Bm           A
In the belly of a black-winged bird.
Bm    G
Don't try to feed me
Bm        G
I've been here before
    D           E
And I deserve a little more


[chorus]
A Bm    D       E              A
I belong in the service of the Queen
A Bm    D   E               A
I belong anywhere but in between
A          Bm     D               E
She's been crying and I've been thinking
A     Bm     D         E
And I am the Rain King


[verse]
E          D           A            Bm   A
And I said mama, mama, mama, why am I so alone?
D          A
I can't go outside
             Bm                A
I'm scared I might not make it home
    D           A
I'm alive, I'm alive
     Bm           A
But I'm sinking in
           D                 A
If there's anyone at home at your place, darling
Bm                      A
Why don't you invite me in?
Bm    G
Don't try to bleed me
Bm        G
I've been there before
    D           E
And I deserve a little more


[chorus]
A Bm    D       E              A
I belong in the service of the Queen
A Bm    D    E              A
I belong anywhere but in between
A          Bm    D              E
She's been lying and I've been sinking
A     Bm     D         E
And I am the Rain King


[bridge]
Bm          D                A
Hey, I only want the same as anyone
Bm           D   A   Bm
Henderson is waiting for the sun
                   D         A
Oh, it seems night endlessly begins and ends
Bm            D               A
After all the dreaming I come home again


repeat D A Bm A 2x here


[verse]
D               A
When I think of heaven
Bm         A                 D
Deliver me in a black-winged bird
A          Bm
I think of dying
A                D                  A
Lay me down in a field of flame and heather
Bm           A             D                A
Render up my body into the burning heart of God
                Bm             A
In the belly of a black-winged bird
Bm    G
Don't try to bleed me
Bm        G
I've been here before
    D           E
And I deserve a little more


[chorus]
A Bm    D       E              A
I belong in the service of the queen
A Bm    D    E              A
I belong anywhere but in between
A          Bm    D             E
She's been dying and I've been drinking
A     Bm     D          E
And I am the Rain King
