(Verse 1)

C
Money
C       Dm  Em F                  Em  Dm   C
Some people so poor all that they've got is money
         C
Oh, and diamonds
     Dm Em  F                      Em    Dm      C
Some people waste their lives counting their thousands

(Chorus)
                           G
I don't care what they're offering
             Am7
How much gold they bring
                         F        G
They can't afford what we got,
                  C
Not even the king
                         F         G      
They can't afford what we got,

     F        C
Not even the king

(Verse 2)

C                   Dm  Em F              Em  Dm   C
Oh castles, some people so lonely, what good is a castle
                                Dm  Em F
Surrounded by people, but ain't got a friend
        Em Dm      C
That's not on the payroll

(Chorus)

Oh,
          G
I don't care what they bring,
                Am7        
They can have everything
                       F     G
They can't afford what we got,
              C
Not even the king
                       F      G
They can't afford what we got,
    Em Dm    C
Not even the king

(Bridge)

Am             G          F               Em   
All the king's horses and all the king's men
     Dm          Em         F
Came charging to get what we got
     Am          G               F          Em   
They offered the crown and they offered the throne

        Dm         Em         F
But I already got all that I want

Am              G         F              Em   
All the king's horses and all the king's men


Dm          Em      F
They came marching through

Am              G             F           Em   
They offer the world just to have what we got
   Dm           Em       G
But I found the world in you
F          G       C
I found a world in you

(Verse 3)

           C
So darling listen,
     Dm  Em  F               Em Dm    C
Your arms around me worth more than a kingdom
       C
Yeah, believe that
           Dm   Em  F           Em   Dm  C
That trust that we feel, the kings never felt that

(Chorus)
                 G                      \
Yeah this is the song we sing
                        Am
We don't need anything
           F          G
They can't afford this
         Am      G F
This is priceless
                         F     G
They can't afford what we've got
                C
Not even the king

(Outro)

                      F    G
They can't afford what we got,
    Em Dm     C
Not even the king

(End on C)
