Temple of the King

by: Ritchie Blackmore, Rainbow

[C              G]
One day in the year of the fox
[       Dm                Am]
Came a time I remembered well
[           F]
When the strong young man
[           G]
  of the rising sun
[           Am]
Went to struggle of the great
  black bell.
[C               G]
One day in the year of the fox
[         E7              Am]
When the bell begun to (ring)
[           F             G]
(When) the time had come to go
[        Am]
To the temple of the King.

((BRIDGE:))
[Dm]
There in the middle of the
  people he stands
[ Am]
Searchin', seeking
[        G]
(With) just one touch of his
  trembling hand
[     Am]
The answer will be found
[  Dm]
Daylight waits while the old
[             Am]
  man sings heaven, help me
[  G]
And then like the rush of a
  thousand wings
[     E7]
It shines above the wall
[        F        G   (Intro)]
And the day has just begun.

((BRIDGE 2:))
[Dm]
There in the middle of the
  people he stands
[Am]
Seein', feelin'
[      G]
With just a wave of his
  strong right hand
[      E7]
He's drawn
[        F     G       Am-F-G-Am Am-G-Dm F-E7]
To the temple of the King.

[Dm]
Far from the circle of the
  edge of the world
[      Am]
He's hopin', wondrin'
[   G                  Dm]
Thinking back on the story
[                     Am]
  he's heard of what he's
  gonna see
[     Dm]
And there in the middle of
[                      Am]
  the circle in lies heaven
  help me
[      G]
Hope you'll see by the shine
  in your eyes
[     E7]

[Dm]
Back with the people in the
[                    Am]
  circle he stands giving,
  hearing
[       G]
With just one touch of a
  strong right hand they
[   E7]
  know
[         F     G        (Intro)]
Of the temple and the King.
