When The Circus Came To Town

Capo on 3rd fret
	  		 
 

Intro: 
D   G   D   A   

         D     
Well the days are long, and the work is hard 
          G                         D 
When your childhood is spent in the fields 
                                    A 
And summer seemed to last a million years 
    D 
One day when I was just a boy 
       G                       D 
During one of those hot summer swells 
                                             A 
The locusts were silenced by the clanging of bells 

    G             A         D       G 
And there was the thing for which I longed 
              A   D 
A place where I belonged 
        G              A           D     G 
Where I first held the hand of the one I loved   (pause) 
         G      A       D 
When the circus came to town 

       D     
We ate candy corns and corn dogs 
       G               D 
Cotton candy and candy canes 
                                       A 
And we shared a caramel apple by the arcade 
         D                         
And when night fell, and the stars rose 
    G                    D 
And lights bedazzled the fair 
                                     A 
We rode the Ferris Wheel up into the air 

    G             A         D       G 
And there was the thing for which I longed 
              A   D 
A place where I belonged 
        G              A           D     G 
Where I first held the hand of the one I loved   (pause) 
         G      A       D 
When the circus came to town 

    G                           D 
And later in the fun-house, our bodies looked so strange 
        G                           D 
And the mirrors made our faces seem deranged 
        G                 A 
And the snake man, in the freak show 
D             G 
He got you so alarmed 
         A                                  
That you ran and ran and ran right into my arms, oh oh oh 

G   A   D   G    A   D  G  A  D  G .... G   A   D 

         D  
The next morning, I got up 
           G                 D 
Wrapped my clothes up into a ball 
                                       A 
And I ran and ran to run away with the fair 
         D          
But when I arrived, to my surprise 
        G                     D      
All the tents and wagons were gone 
                                             A 
And they'd stolen all the happiness from the air 

    G            A         D       G 
And gone was the thing for which I longed 
                 A   D 
That place where I belonged 
        G             A           D     G 
Where I last held the hand of the one I loved    (pause) 
         G      A 
When the circus came  
         D      G 
When the circus came 
                A       D 
When the circus came to town  


G  A  D  G ..... G  A  D 

End on D
