Rain King


by Counting Crows (Adam Duritz & David Bryson)
Capo 2nd Fret

V1:	When I think of heaven
(Deliver me in a black-winged bird)
I think of flying 
Down into a sea of pens and leathers
And all other instruments of faith and sex and God
In the belly of a black-winged bird
But don't try to bleed me
'Cause I've been here before and I deserve a little more

C - - - / G/B - - - / Am - - - / G/B - - - /  x4  /  x4  /  x4  /
   [1 & 2]	           [3]
Am - - - / F - - - /  x2  / C - - - / D - - - // D - - - /    //

C-a:	I belong in the service of the Queen
I belong anywhere but in between
She's been crying, I've been thinking
And I am the Rain King

G - - - / Am - - - / C - - - / D - - - /  x4  /  x4  /  x4  //

V2:	I said, mama, mama, mama... why am I so alone?
Well, I can't go outside
I'm scared I might not make it home
I'm alive,  I'm alive - but I'm sinking in
If there's anyone at home at your place darling
Why don't you invite me in?
Don't try to bleed me
'Cause I've been there before and I deserve a little more

C-b:	I belong in the service of the Queen
I belong anywhere but in between
She's been lying, I've been sinking
And I am the Rain King

 B:	Hey, I only want the same at as anyone
Henderson is waiting for the sun
Oh, it seems night endlessly begins and ends
After all the dreaming I come home again

Am - - - /     / C - - - / D - - - /  x4  /  x4  /  x4  //
( C - - - / G/B - - - / Am - - - / G/B - - - /  x4  //)

V3:	When I think of heaven
(Deliver me in a black-winged bird)
I think of dying
Lay me down in a field of flame and heather
Render up my body into the burning heart of God
In the belly of the black-winged bird
Don't' try to bleed me
'Cause I've been here before and I deserve a little more

C-c:	I belong in the service of the Queen
I belong anywhere but in between
She's been dying, I been drinking
And I am the Rain King - I am the Rain King...
