Great Big Sea
When I Am King
Great Big Sea - written by Doyle

(G) Wake up, (D) without a care. Your (C) head's not heavy, (D) conscience clear
(G) Sins are all (D) forgiven here, (C) yours and (D) mine 
(G) Fear has gone (D) without a trace
It's the (C) perfect time, it's the (D) perfect place
(G) Nothing hurting. Nothing sore. (D) No one suffers anymore,
(C) The doctor's found a simple cure.
(D) Just in time

(G) All these things if (D) I were King would all (Em) appear around (D) me
The (G) world will (C) sing when (D) I am (G) King
The (G) world will (C) sing when (D) I am (G) King

(G) Ah She walks right in she don't (D) even knock. It's the (C) girl you lost to the (D) high school jock
(G) She shuts the door and (D) turns the lock, and (C) takes your (D) hand.
(G) She says she always (D) felt a fool, for (C) picking the Captain (D) over you
(G) She wonders if you miss her, says she (D) always told her sister
(C) That you're the best damn kisser
(D) That she's ever had



(D) Daylight waits to (C) shine until the (G) moment you (C) awaken
(D) So you (C) never miss the (G) dawn (C) 
(D) No (C) question, now, you (G) know which road you're (C) taking
(D) Lights all green, the (C) radio plays just the (G) perfect (D) song


(G) Well, the war's been won. All the (D) fights are fought
(C) You find yourself in (D) just the spot
(G) It's a place where every (D) body's got a (C) song to (D) sing.
(G) Just like the final (D) movie scene. The (C) prince will find his (D) perfect queen
(G) The hero always saves the world. The (D) villains get what they deserve
(C) The boy will always get the girl (D) When I am King
The (G) world will (C) sing when (D) I am (G) King
