Little King (Difford/Tilbrook)
Intro: A   A6   A7    A6 (4X) *(see note)

         A
When the little king

     A6
Rode on his horse

   A7              A6
In to the darkened wood

   A
No one believed 

     A6
That he'd return

     A7                    A6      
They thought he'd gone for good

      D
As he looked down to see the lake

   Bm             E
He found a secret key

                   G
The little king he couldn't wait 

       F#m            B         E
And he rode of nervously

A
In a stolen car 

   A6
On busy streets

   A7               A6
He spun the leather wheel

       A
He was burning oil 

   A6
In second gear

       A7           A6
As the tyres loudly squealed 

        D
And the bouncers on the kerb

       Bm               E
Jumped right out of the way

                  G
He smashed into a superstore

       F#m
And he didn't feel a thing

       B                     D
Just a quiet nigth where the fun begins

        A         A6    A7   A6
For the little king

            A         A6    A7   A6  
O', for the little king

D             G
Once life was merry going round

         F#m              A
Then the time began to rub

    D      G
The future looked as clear as day

       Bm
But it quickly turned to mud

   Fm
It stuck to him like glue

         Bm/F#       G
What can anybody do

        A             A6    A7    A6
O', For the little king 

        A             A6     A7    A6
O', For the little king

A   A6   A7   A6  (ad lib 4X)

        A (hold)
Now the little king

N.C.
Is locked away

N.C.
To mix with the elite

       A (hold)
In the doghouse now

N.C.
He learns new tricks

N.C.
From other pedigress

    D
Its small town front page news

    Bm               E
The fairy tale young king

                       G 
Has scratched his head looking for clues

   F#m
He found splinters there

    B                D
But one day soon the latch will swing

        A         A6    A7   A6
For the little king

            A         A6    A7    A6
O', For the little king


A    A6   A7   A6 (4X)
