Tears Of A Clown

	  		Tears Of A Clown:Smokey Robinson And The Miracles. 
#1 in UK and #1 in USA in 1967. 

#1. 
NC                      Db  Gb  
Now, if there's a smile up..on my face, 
B    Gb         Db        Gb       B 
It's only there trying to fool the public. 
Gb                Db 
But when it comes down to fooling you, 
B    Gb           Db            Gb     B 
Now, honey that's quite a different subject. 

#2. 
Gb    Db     Gb          B 
Don't let my glad expression, 
Gb       Db  Gb      B 
Give you the wrong impression. 
    Gb         Db Gb B          Gb 
really I'm sad.......Oh, I'm sadder than sad. 
Db     Gb   B           Gb     Db 
You're gone and I'm hurting so bad, 
Gb           B        Gb    Db   Gb B 
Like a clown I appear to be glad..  

Chorus:  
Gb                Ab                  F 
Now, they're some sad things known to man, 
          Bbm 
but ain't too much sadder than, 
Gbmaj7         Db                               Db Gb Db 
the tears of a clown, when there's no one around.  

#3. 

Now if I appear to be carefree, 
It's only to camouflage my sadness.  
And Honey to shield my pride I try, 
to cover this hurt with a show of gladness. 
But don't let my show convince you,  
that I've been happy since you, decided to go. 
I need you so, I'm hurt and I want you to know,  
but for others I put on a show... 

Chorus:  
B       Gb            Db   Gb   B    Db 
Now, if I appear just like Pagliacci did, 
Db       Gb      B  Gb 
I try to keep my sadness hid. 
    Db         Gb     B    Gb 
Smiling in the public eye, but in my 
Db          Gb     B         Gb   Db 
lonely room I cry, the tears of a clown, 
                           Db Gb Db 
when there's no one around. 

#4. 

Now if there's a smile on my face, 
don't let my glad expression, 
give you the wrong impression. 
Don't let this smile I wear, 
make you think that I don't care...  


A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
