Intro:

F C G x2


Verse 1:
     F  C  G        F C  G
I built a wall in China. I sank an ocean liner
       Bb         F          G
I've wrecked homes, I've burned thrones, chasing the crown
     F   C    G       F   C   G
I've put thorns in your feet. I spread plague in the streets
      Bb       F         G
I've sprung traps, confused maps, chasing the crown


Chorus:
      C7
Chasing the crown 'til he bites the apple

I was licking my lips 'til the sun come down
        G   C           G
I'm chasing the crown, crown, I'm chasing the crown
       C7
I'm taking a turn in the right direction

By leaving his soul in the lost and found
        G  F         C
I'm chasing the crown, I'm chasing the crown


Verse 2:
     F  C    G         F  C   G
I saw the tea float in Boston. I saw the live wire shock 'em
      Bb         F          G
I made them float, I made them drown, chasing them 'round
      F C  G         F C  G
I laid the desert sands. I froze the polar caps
         Bb         F          G
Well, they'd dry out, and I'd shout "Hey, I'm chasing the crown"


Chorus:
      C7
Chasing the crown 'til he bites the apple

I was licking my lips 'til the sun come down
        G   C           G
I'm chasing the crown, crown, I'm chasing the crown
       C7
I'm taking a turn in the right direction

By leaving his soul in the lost and found
        G  F         C
I'm chasing the crown, I'm chasing the crown


Instrumental:
F C G F C G Bb F G x2


Chorus:
      C7
Chasing the crown 'til he bites the apple

I was licking my lips 'til the sun come down
        G   C           G
I'm chasing the crown, crown, I'm chasing the crown
       C7
I'm taking a turn in the right direction

By leaving his soul in the lost and found
        G  F         C
I'm chasing the crown, I'm chasing the crown
