Standard guitar tuning:EADGBENo capo
DDYou'd have thought a king had died DThe way those people cried GInstead of one more broken Dentertainer It struck those in his trade He could have had it made If he'd only been a little saner AThey traveled far to see him DOh, the humble and the hGigh DThey said goodbye as Bmif he were a frF♯miend
AANow somewhere he is smiling DOn those who idolized Ghim DBut would they even rBmecognizeF♯m him AIf he came back aDgain? He was born of modest means But had outrageous dreams They never let him rest Till he fulfilled them While heCas rode that train of song His devils tagged along The whiskey and the pills Just couldn't kill him He didn't mean to be a rebel Ah, the Casreal ones never do They're born apart from ordinary men Chorus... AIt's an old familiar story DBut it's a damn shame none-the-Gless DThey don't forgive his kind
CasDTill they lay them down to rAest Chorus...
