Circle Of Steel

Gordon Lightfoot

Intro: D G A5 C D
 DC
Rows of lights in a circle of steel
 DG
Where you place your bets on a great big wheel
 DCG
 High windows flickerin' down through the snow
 D
time you know
 DGA5
 Sights and sounds of the people goin' 'round
 CD
Everybody's in step with the season
 -DC
                                     A child is born to a welfare case

 DG
Where the rats run around like they own the place

 DCG
 The room is chilly, the building is old   
 D
That's how it goes

 DGA5
 The doctor's found on his welfare round

 CD
And he comes and he leaves on the double
 -DC
                                     Deck The Halls was the song they played

 DG
In the flat next door where they shout all day

 DCG
 She tips her gin bottle back till it's gone

 D
 The child is strong
 DGA5
 A week, a day, they will take it away  

 CD
For they know about all her bad habits
 -DC
                                     Christmas dawns and the snow lets up

 DG
And the sun hits the handle of her heirloom cup

 DCG
 She hides her face in her hands for a while
 D
Says look here child

 DGA5
 Your father's pride was his means to provide

 CD
And he's servin' three years for that reason
 -DC
                                     Rows of lights in a circle of steel
 DG
Where you place your bets on a great big wheel
 DCG
 High windows flickerin' down through the snow
 D
time you know
 DGA5
 Sights and sounds of the people goin' 'round
 CD
Everybody's in step with the season
