King of the Wandering Souls

By Monica Pasqual

Come close, my dears

D                     Am

Ashes for your fears

Am                 D

I am the King of the Wandering Souls

D              C                    G                    D

The weeds and dirt

D                     Am

The losses and the hurt

Am                 D

These are the fields where your words become gold

D                         C                                G                           D

I am the King of the Wandering Souls

D              C                    G                    D

 

 CHORUS

 Welcome to my vast empire

C                G              G         D

All you behold and beyond

C                G                          D        

Pull up a crate by my tin-can fire

C                G                   G           D

We’ll tell stories from dusk until dawn

     C                     G                 D

We’ll tell stories from dusk until dawn

     C                     G                 D

 

I stand guard at the gate

Hold the key to the state

I am the King of the Wandering Souls

To enter the Midway
You must first gain entrée

To the fields where your words become gold

I am the King of the Wandering Souls

 

Welcome to my vast empire

All you behold and beyond

Pull up a crate by my tin-can fire

We’ll tell stories from dusk until dawn

We’ll tell stories from dusk until dawn

 

Come woman, come man, 

Welcome to my clan

I am the King of the Wandering Souls

Between the rails we tell our tales

These are the fields where your words become gold

I am the King of the Wandering Souls

 

Welcome to my vast empire

All you behold and beyond

Pull up a crate by my tin-can fire

We’ll tell stories from dusk until dawn

We’ll tell stories from dusk until dawn

 

Before you move on

I demand a token

Something old that will lighten your load

But at the end of your stay

As you leave the Midway

In these fields your own words become gold

I am the King of the Wandering Souls

 

Welcome to my vast empire

All you behold and beyond

Pull up a crate by my tin-can fire

We’ll tell stories from dusk until dawn

We’ll tell stories from dusk until dawn
