[Verse 1]
G   C           G            C
Sundown in the Paris of the prairies
G      C          G         C
Wheat kings have all their treasures
buried
G            C            G     C
And all you hear are the rusty breezes
G        C          G           C
Pushing around the weathervane Jesus

[Verse 2]
G       C                G       
In his Zippo lighter he sees the
C
killer's face
G           C       G              
Maybe it's someone standing in the
C
killers place
G                 C                   
Twenty years for nothing, well that's
G       C
nothing new, besides
G         C             G            
No one's interested in something you
C
didn't do

[Chorus]
D                G             C  G  C
Wheat kings and pretty things,
D                        G             C
Let's just see what the morning brings
 G  C

[Verse 3]
G                   C                G  
There's a dream he dreams where the 
           C
high school is dead and stark
G         C                  G          
It's a museum and we're all locked up 
    C
in it after dark
G                    C         G      
Where the walls are lined all yellow,
         C
grey and sinister
G          C               G            
Hung with pictures of our parents' 
 C
Prime Ministers

[Chorus]
D                G            C  G  C
Wheat kings and pretty things
D                    G            C  G  
Wait and see what tomorrow brings
C

[Verse 4]
G              C            G C
Late breaking story on the CBC
G         C               G             
A nation whispers, "We always knew that
C
he'd go free"
G               C                G     
They add, "You can't be fond of living
       C
in the past
G             C                   G  
Cause if you are then there's no way
            C
that you're gonna last"

[Chorus]
D                G            C  G  C
Wheat Kings and pretty things
D                      G            C  G
Let's just see what tomorrow brings
 C
D                C
Wheat Kings and pretty things
                 C            D
Ah that's what tomorrow brings
