Tell the King
Copyright  2000 Jeff Person SOCAN

Verse 1
(G)I was on the job at eight-o-two, (C)the boss said Â?Hey, whatÂ?s wrong with you?
You been (D)cominÂ? in just a little too late, smearinÂ? mud on a real clean slate,
and thatÂ?s why I had to have this little talk with (G)you. Â?

Verse 2
(G)IÂ?ve been tryinÂ? hard not to let it get to me.(C)WalkinÂ? this line ainÂ?t what it used to be.
IÂ?m (D)hanginÂ? on a real fine thread, will it be this way until IÂ?m dead?
I gotta cut a little slack, see what there is to (G)see.

Chorus
And you (C)better believe it, IÂ?m too far gone. You (G)wonÂ?t find me hanginÂ? Â?round too long.
IÂ?m (C)tired of all of this carryinÂ? on. (G)Tell the king he lost a(D)nother (G)pawn.

Verse 3
(G)They say do unto others what youÂ?d like done to you.
(C)Sometimes I think theyÂ?re just a bunch of hyprocritic fools.
(D)LookinÂ? up to a flag on the top of the hill, where a flag poleÂ?s flyinÂ? a dollar bill,
the man with the gold seems to live by a different (G)rules.

Instrumental (chorus)

Bridge
Pretty soon IÂ?ll be outta here, lying in the sun, sippin on a beer
ThereÂ?s lots of other ways to earn some cash.
I think IÂ?ll throw on some Johnny Cash.
Verse 4
(G)Tell me why do I feel like such a fool?(C)Would you trade me places, walk a mile in my shoes?
(D)Tell me why the rules ainÂ?t the same, for the man with the gold, and the man with the blame?
Better hope we all keep livinÂ? by the golden (G)rule.

Chorus

Repeat Chorus
Yes you (C)better believe it, IÂ?m too far gone. You (G)wonÂ?t find me hanginÂ? Â?round too long.
IÂ?m (C)thru with all of this carryinÂ? on. (G)Tell the king he lost a(D)nother (G)pawn.
(G)Tell the king, you better tell the king, tell the king, heÂ?s lost a(D)nother (G)pawn.
