    Bm2 (not official name) : X24432
    BmBmBm7A
    There are few who would deny at what I do I am the best 
    GF#GABm
    For my talents are renowned far and wide. 
    BmBmBm6A
    When it comes to surprises in the moonlit night 
    GF#GBm
    I accel without ever even trying. 
    BmBmBm7A
    With the slightest little effort of my ghostlike charm 
    GF#GAmBm
    I've seen grown men give out a shriek 
    BmBmBm7A
    With a wave of my hand and a well placed moan 
    GF#GAmBm
    I have swept the very bravest off their feet. 
    GF#GF#
    Yet year after year, it's the same old cheer 
    GF#EmA7
    And I grow so weary of the sound of screams 
    BmBmAGF#
    And I, Jack, the Pump-kin King 
    GF#GF#
    Have grown so tired of the same old thing 
    BmBmBm7A
    Oh, somewhere deep inside of these bones 
    GF#EmF#
    An emptiness began to grow 
    BmBmBm7A
    There's something out there, far from my home 
    GF#F#Bm
    A longing that I've never known 
    BmBmBm7A
    I'm a master of fright, and a demon of light 
    GF#GAmBm
    And I'll scare you right out of your pants 
    BmBmBm7A
    To a guy in Kentucky, I'm Mister Unlucky 
    GF#GBm
    And I'm known throughout England and France 
    BmBmBm7A
    And since I am dead, I can take off my head 
    GF#GAmBm
    To recite Shakespearean quotations 
    BmBmBm7A
    No animal nor man can scream like I can 
    GF#GBm
    With the fury of my recitations 
    GF#GF#
    But who here would ever understand 
    GF#EmA7
    That the Pumpkin King with the skeleton grin 
    BmBmAAGF#
    Would tire of his crown, if they only understood 
    GF#GF#
    He'd give it all up if he only could 
    BmBmBm7A
    Oh, there's an empty place in my bones 
    GF#EmA
    That calls out for something unknown 
    BmBmBm7A
    The fame and praise come year after year 
    GF#F#7Bm
    Does nothing for these empty tears
