Viva La Vida piano chords by Coldplay

[Intro]
C D G Em    x2
 
 
[Verse 1]
Em        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 sleep alone 
          G                 Em
Sweep the streets I used to own
 
 
[Interlude]
C D G Em    x2
 
 
[Verse 2]
Em       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!"
  Em         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 
 
 
[Interlude]
C D G Em    x2
 
 
[Verse 3]
Em                   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
Em       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  
 
 
[Interlude]
C  Em x3
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  
 
 
[Outro]
C  D  Bm  Em
Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh  x2
