Royals Tabs by Lorde V2

 This is one of my first tabs. I thought I'd introduce a tabbed out version, played to 
the melody of the lyrics. So here we go (:

Standard Tuning (EADGBE)

Verse 1:

E------------------------------------------------------------------|
B------------------------------3-3-1-1---------------------3-3-1-1-|
G------2-----2-----2----2--2-2---------2------2-----2--2-2---------|
D---0-----0--0--0-----0-0------------------0-----0--0--------------|
A------------------------------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------------------------------|

E-----------------------------------------------3-2-------3-2p0----|
B----------------3-3-1-1-3p1--------------3-3-3-------3-3-------3--|
G-2-0-2p0----2-2-------------2-----2----2--------------------------|
D---------2---------------------0----0--0--------------------------|
A------------------------------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------------------------------|

Pre-Chorus

    Dsus      D                                Cadd9     G
E------3p2-/---------2222-------------2222---------3------3---------|
B-----3---3/-----3-3------3-3-----3-3------3-3------3------3-3------|
G----2-----/-2-2--------------2-2-----------------0--0------0-------|
D---0------/-------------------------------------2-------0----------|(x2)
A----------/------------------------------------3-------2-----------|
E----------/-------------------------------------------3------------|
          (x2) starts here

Play Chorus with whatever strum pattern you like, It's D, C, G just like the chorus.

Verse 2:

E------------------------------------------------------------------|
B------------------------------3-3-1-1---------------------3-3-1-1-|
G------2-----2-----2----2--2-2---------2------2-----2--2-2---------|
D---0-----0--0--0-----0-0------------------0-----0--0--------------|
A------------------------------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------------------------------|

E---------------------------------------------------3-2-0----------|
B----------------3-3-1-1-3p1------------------3-3-1-------3-0------|
G-2-0-2p0----2-2-------------2-----2----2-2-2-----------------2----|
D---------2---------------------0----0--0--------------------------|
A------------------------------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------------------------------|

E-----3-2-------3-2p0----|
B-3-3-------3-3-------3--|
G------------------------|
D------------------------|
A------------------------|
E------------------------|

Then repeat Pre-Chorus, Chorus, and so on. The rest of the song is the same. I think 
there's a bridge but I'm not 100% on how it goes.

Royals Acoustic chords – Lorde

 I play the verses with barre chords and the chorus with straight chords, but it 
doesn't really matter.


Verse 1

 A 
I've never seen a diamond in the flesh
             G D         
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
                    A G 
And I'm not proud of my address - in the torn up town
              D 
No postcode envy


Chorus

 A 
But every song's like: gold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom
Blood stains, ballgowns, trashin' the hotel room
 G D 
We don't care - we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams
                                 A 
But everybody's like Cristal, Mayback, diamonds on your timepiece
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
 G D 
We don't care - we  aren't caught up in your love affair

                           A 
And we'll never be royals - It don't run in our blood
                  G 
That kind of lux just ain't for us
                  D 
We crave a different kind of buzz
                       A 
Let me be your ruler - you can call me Queen Bee
                   G 
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule
 D A 
Let me live that fantasy

Verse 2

 A 
My friends and I we've cracked the code
                   G D 
We count our dollars on the train to the party
               A G 
And everyone who knows us knows that we're fine with this
                     D 
We didn't come from money


Chorus

 A 
But every song's like: gold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom
Blood stains, ballgowns, trashin' the hotel room
 G D 
We don't care - we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams
                                 A 
But everybody's like Cristal, Mayback, diamonds on your timepiece
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
 G D 
We don't care - we  aren't caught up in your love affair

 
                            A 
And we'll never be royals - It don't run in our blood
                  G 
That kind of lux just ain't for us
                  D 
We crave a different kind of buzz
                       A 
Let me be your ruler - you can call me Queen Bee
                   G 
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule
 D A 
Let me live that fantasy


 A 
oh ooh oh ohh
          G                                  
We're bigger than we ever dreamed
                D 
And I'm in love with being queen (king)
 A 
oh ooh oh ohh
 G 
Life's a game without a care
               D 
We aren't caught up in your love affair
                           A 
And we'll never be royals - It don't run in our blood
                  G 
That kind of lux just ain't for us
                  D 
We crave a different kind of buzz
                       A 
Let me be your ruler - you can call me Queen Bee
                   G 
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule
 D A 
Let me live that fantasy
