Viva la Vida — Coldplay


Аккорды и текст

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

C D G Em x2

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

Припев:
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

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?

Припев:
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 will 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)

Припев:
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 will 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
