[Intro] 
Dm G Em7 G7 (play the Em7 by moving your pinky to the 5th fret of the second string from a normal G bar chord)

[Verse]
Dm                 G               Em7 G7
Everyday is just a little white lie
Dm                 G          Em7 G7
Telling myself I'm gettin' by
Dm                  G            Em7 G7
I just stay in this room and cry
C                  Bm     Am     F G 
The snow it covers up the ground
C                  Bm     Am
And I can't hear a single sound

Dm                      G             Em7 G7
I'd turn off the TV and go for a drive
Dm                          G             Em7 G7
But I can't see there's any signs of life
Dm                         G               
Kept a Christmas tree with blinking lights
C                      Bm     Am     F G
I coulda made it but I messed around
C                  Bm     Am    F G
I'm a loser with a rusted crown
Dm                            Em
Scared if I jump in the ocean I might drown

[Chorus]
C         Bm        Am   F G
King of a One Horse Town
C                 Bm        Am   F G
I'm the King of a One Horse Town 
      F Em   Dm   C  B  A   G
And I barely pull my weight around

[Verse]
Dm                          G            Em7 G7
I thought about leaving but I don't know
Dm                     G          Em7 G7
Wouldn't even know anywhere to go
Dm                      G         Em7 G7
Guess I'll stay on desolation row
       C          Bm      Am   F G
Go get stoned and hang around
               C           Bm   Am     F G
The beat of my drum is the only sound
        Dm                          Em 
I would jump into the ocean but I'm scared I'd drown

[Chorus]
C         Bm        Am    F G
King of a One Horse Town
      C         Bm        Am     F G
I'm a King of a One Horse Town
      C         Bm        Am   F G 
I'm a King of a One Horse Town
      F  Em  Dm   C  B  A   G
And I barely pull my weight around

      C         Bm        Am    F G
I'm a King of a One Horse Town
C         Bm        Am    F G
King of a One Horse Town
      C         Bm        Am    F G
I'm a King of a One Horse Town
      F  Em  Dm   C  B  A   G
And I barely pull my weight around
