Lucky Man Lyrics - Emerson, Lake & Palmer

Review The Song (6)

He had white Horses
And ladies by the score
All dressed in satin
And waiting by the door

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

White lace and feathers
They made up his bed
A gold covered mattress
On which he was led

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

He went to fight wars
For his country and his king
Of his honor and his glory
The people would sing

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

A bullet had found him
His blood ran as he cried
No money could save him
So he laid down and he died

Ooooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

As beautiful as ever. | Reviewer: Mike Coggins | 9/25/12

I saw Emerson,Lake & Palmer at Winterland in S.F. back in 1972. It is still my favorite concert of all time. I love to play and sing Lucky Man on my guitar. It is always a favorite of my small audience. (usualy my wife and my dogs.) It is simple and beautiful but the synth at the end makes it imortal. It will always be one of my favorites.

sounds great on the mandolin .... | Reviewer: cjb950 | 7/14/12

Just put it thru its paces on the mandolin ... makes a great mando tune. At the end of each "Ohh ... lucky man" chorus line, after the D, play Dsus4 Dsus2 in rhythm and you've got it nailed.

play a good song made simple | Reviewer: mike clay | 12/4/11

Most instructional videos are good enough to play lucky man in a simple way and usually the easiest way. in concert lake has his own way of playing the chords that are used. so learn this song thw easy it really does sound as good.

tab vs. ear vs. sheet, or luck | Reviewer: turnpark | 11/5/07

I was playing a full G chord on the guitar and having not heard the song for a long time I went to the d chord with the added f# on the sixth string with the thumb, which is a no-no whith the fret hand, but it's required for the song, the full G and the D are the chords that would be used on the four verses. Then the A minor and the full G then the D with the added F# on the sixth string.

1 G full / D
1 G full / D
1 G full / D
1 G full / D

2 A minor / G full / D
2 A minor / G full / D

!!!! 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 that's it but I still haven't heard the song in a long time and my voice sounded a heck of a lot like Lake's

I was making a new song with my acoustic guitar and it turned out to be Lucky Man. ooooh how lucky?!!!

the chords go full straight through on the guitar. as for the keyboards you need or should get an an1x...but that would be bad, they aren't made any longer. Bad make of keyboard, it had the voice called "Lucky" built right in the factory voices. Although it was authentic, the bass note on the keyboard doesn't cut it. It has to be doubled with an octave and doesn't work correctly. I'm not sure what the Motif by yamaha has to offer I'm goin vsti these days. Oh yeah if you're wondering why I explained's because Keith Emerson is the best synth user in the world and I don't think he uses anything close to yamaha or casio. hm. analog is the road to travel with those days. 2007 peeps can't wait for my next song, I wonder what that'll be!

Awesome | Reviewer: mkl | 9/21/07

if you can't find tablatures for this, then just listen it by ear..

Anyway, this song is frigging awesome, great old Emerson, Lake & Palmer!
