    Old king cole was a merry old soul, 
    DF#m
    And a merry old soul was he. 
    So he called for his pipe,
    B
    And he called for his bowl, 
    DF#m
    And he called for his fiddlers three. 
    F#mE
    But the clock, tick-tock, 
    D
    On the mantlepiece - 
    And I want, and I feel, and I know, and I touch,
    EF#
    Her warmth...

    Anyway this is one of my favourite Genesis songs, I know that my work is not
    100% correct, but makes it able to play and sing at once, I hope you'll
    enjoy
    as much as I do,
