                            King of Bohemia
                          by Richard Thompson
                   copyright (c) 1994 Beeswing Music

I leant out my copy of Mirror Blue, so this is pretty much guaranteed
to be inaccurate.  Still I think it gives a feel for the style and
could be useful in conjunction with the recording on the album Mirror
Blue.

G/D             D
Let me rock you in my arms
    G/B               D
And hold you safe and small,
  G/D D/A          Bm  D
A refugee from the seraphim
        G/D                D
In your rich girl rags and all.
         Bm         Asus9
Did your dreams die young
          G        D/F#
Were they too hard won
        Em        A5       G
Did you reach too high and fall
          Bm    Asus9
And there is no rest
        G        D/F#
For the ones God blessed
       Em      D/F# G    A5 G/B D
And he blessed you  best of all.

for lyrics to other verses see the album...

Verse accompaniment: First 8 measures are flexible:  keep the bass notes
on the important beats, change the rest each verse.  Mm9-16 are played
pretty much the same each time except m12 which changes each verse.
