Intro: C7M A7/13- Dm7 G7 

Dm7 C7M          C7M/9 C7M 
If   I ruled the world 
      Gm7         C7      Bm5-/7             E7/9 
Ev'ry day would be the first day of spring 
Bm5-/7  E7/9              Am           Am7+ Am7 
Ev'ry heart would have a new song to sing 
         Am6         Em7       Cdim            Dm7   G7 
And we'd sing of the joy ev'ry morning would bring 
Dm7 C7M          C7M/9 C7M 
If I ruled the world 
      Gm7       C7    Bm5-/7        E7/9 
Ev'ry man would be as free as a bird 
Bm5-/7  E7/9             Am          Am7+  Am7 
Ev'ry voice would be a voice to be heard  
        Am6      Em7                Cdim        Dm7       E9 
Take my word, we would treasure each day that occurred 

Bridge 
   A7M   F#m                Bm7        E7 
My world     would be a beautiful place 
               A7M        A7M/9       Dm7    G7 
Where we would weave such wonderful dreams 
    C7M   Am7               Dm7          G7 
My world     would wear a smile on its face 
         Am         Am7+  Am7     F#m7    Dm7   G7 
Like the man in the moon when the moon beams  
Dm7 C7M          C7M/9  C7M 
If  I ruled the world 
      Gm7           C7          Bm5-/7            E7/9 
Ev'ry man would say the world was his friend 
Bm5-/7      E7/9           Am          Am7+  Am7 
There'd be happiness that no man could end 
        Am6          Em7 Em5-/7    A4/7   A7 
No, my friend, not if I  ruled the world 
A7/13-  Dm7            Dm7+     G7 
Ev'ry head would be held up high 
           C7M             Cdim            A7 
There'd be sunshine in ev'ryone's sky 
       Dm7      F7M        Dm7       G7        C7M 
If the day ever dawned when I ruled the world
