Circle Of Steel  Gordon Lightfoot

Intro: D G A5 C D
R[D]ows of lights in a c[C]ircle of steel
Where you [D]place your bets on a [G]great big wheel
[D]High windows [C]flickerin' down through the [G]snow
A [D]time you know
[D]Sights and sounds of the [G]people goin' [A5]'round
Every[C]body's in step with the [D]season
[-]                                    [D]A child is born to a[C] welfare case

Where the [D]rats run around like [G]they own the place

[D]The room is c[C]hilly, the building is old  [G]
Th[D]at's how it goes

[D]The doctor's found on his[G] welfare roun[A5]d

And h[C]e comes and he leaves on[D] the double
[-]                                    [D]Deck The Halls was t[C]he song they played

In the fla[D]t next door where the[G]y shout all day

[D]She tips her [C]gin bottle back till it's go[G]ne


[D]The child is strong
[D]A week, a day, they will [G]take it away [A5]

For t[C]hey know about all her b[D]ad habits
[-]                                    [D]Christmas dawns and [C]the snow lets up

And the su[D]n hits the handle of [G]her heirloom cup

[D]She hides her[C] face in her hands for a whi[G]le
Sa[D]ys look here child

[D]Your father's pride was h[G]is means to p[A5]rovide

And h[C]e's servin' three years [D]for that reason
[-]                                    [D]Rows of lights in a [C]circle of steel
Where you [D]place your bets on a [G]great big wheel
[D]High windows [C]flickerin' down through the [G]snow
A [D]time you know
[D]Sights and sounds of the [G]people goin' [A5]'round
Every[C]body's in step with the [D]season
