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


        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


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


Oh,
          G
I don't care what they bring,
                Am7        F
They can have everything

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


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               C
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
G              Am         C
I found a world in you


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


 G                      Cmaj7
Yeah this is the song we sing
                        Am
We don't need anything
           F
They can't afford this
          G   Am    G   F
This is priceless
                              F     G
They can't afford what we've got
                C
Not even the king
                      F
They can't afford what we got,
Em      Dm     C
Not even the king

  1. The Cmaj7 does not sound right. Start at the bottom and go up 8 lines, you’ll find it. It doesnt sound very right to me.
