Thanks to Steve Goldberg (http://stevegoldbergmusic.com) for chord name corrections.


NOTE: This is a piano-to-guitar translation, which is never perfect.
It seems Colin enjoyed using D6/9 to transition from Em to C in this song.  
However, you can get by just fine without playing it.

G

                  C           D               G Dadd4 Em
In the kingdom of Spain there are such colors

          D6/9 C         D                G Dadd4 Em
They defy any  name like drab and dullard

                      D6/9 C        D
But, oh, the King and the  Queen of Spain

           G         Dadd9     Em
With their long unpronouncable names

D6/9      C            D                      Em  D
Grace the table at the long lost kingdom of Spain


                  C        D                  G Dadd4 Em
In the kingdom of Light, a lithe young lawyer

                 D6/9 C     D                   G Dadd4 Em
Tries a case for her  unjustly arrested brother

                      D6/9 C        D
But, oh, the King and the  Queen of Light

G         Dadd9      Em
Rule with unbendable might

        D6/9   C               D                    Em    D
So it's to the gallows for the long lost kingdom of Light


C D G Dadd4 Em D6/9

C D G G

                  C          D               G Dadd4 Em
In the kingdom of Love we're all just fodder

            D6/9  C        D                  G Dadd4 Em
As the cannonades drum our sons and daughters

                      D6/9 C        D
But, oh, the King and the  Queen of Love

         G          Dadd9             Em
In their long white fingerless gloves

D6/9     C             D                    Em   D
Bang the gavel for the long lost kingdom of Love

   Em   D
of Love

   Em   D
of Love


Em D
Em D
Em D...
