Idylls of the King

The original tab is great and really helped me get a grip on the song, but I felt I should add some more clarity so more people can learn how to play
this awesome and fun song, so here it is. All the credit goes to the author of the original tab.

e-3-3-3-3-
B-0-3-2-0-
G-0-0-0-0

D Gm/E Bm7 G5 G* D A D

D Gm/E Bm7 G5
This place with its old plantations
G* D Asus4 A
These roads leading out to the sea
D Gm/E Bm7 G5
This day full of promise and potential
G* D Asus4 A
More clay pigeons for you and me

D G5
All of them all of them
D G5
All of them all of them
D A
All of them all of them all of them all of them
D
All lined up

D Gm/E Bm7 G5 G* D A D

D Gm/E Bm7 G5
Huge crows loitering by the curb
G* D Asus4 A
Our shared paths unraveling behind us like ribbons
D Gm/E
And I dreamed of vultures
Bm7 G5
In the trees around our house
G* D
And cicadas and locusts
Asus4 A
And the shrieking of innumerable gibbons

D G5
All of them all of them
D G5
All of them all of them
D A
All of them all of them all of them all of them
D
All lined up

E7 A7 D G
How long will we ride this way about?
E7 A7 D G
How long 'til someone caves under the pressure?
E7 A7 D G
My dreams are haunted by armies armies of ghosts
G Asus4
Faces too blurry to make out
Asus4 A D
Numbers far too high to measure

D Gm/E Bm7 G5
Your face like a vision straight out of Holly Hobby
G* D Asus4 A D
Late light drizzling through your hair
D Gm/E Bm7 G5
Your eyes twin volcanoes
G* D Asus4 A
Bad ideas dancing around in there

D G5
All all of them all of them
D G5
All of them all of them
D A
All of them all of them all of them all of them
D
All lined up

D Gm/E Bm7 G5 G* D Asus4 A
D Gm/E Bm7 G5 G* D A D

e-0-0-0-
B-2-3-5-
G-2-2-2-

A-0-0-0-
E-x-x-x-
I'm pretty sure he's playing an Emin7b5, not a Bb:
Emin7b5: xx2333
