Circle Of Steel chords
Gordon Lightfoot
Capo III
[D] [C] [D] [G]  
[D] [G] [A] [Cmaj7] [D]  
[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
Sights and sounds of the [G]people goin' '[A]round,
Every[Cmaj7]body's in step with the [D]season
A [D]child is born to a [C]welfare case,
Where the [D]rats run around like they [G]own the place
[D]The room is [C]chilly, the building is [G]old,
[D]That's how it goes
The doctor's found on his [G]welfare [A]round,
And he [Cmaj7]comes and he leaves on the [D]double
[D]Deck The Halls was the [C]song they played,
In the [D]flat next door where they [G]shout all day
[D]She tips her [C]gin bottle back till it's [G]gone,
The [D]child is strong
A week, a day, they will [G]take it a[A]way,
For they [Cmaj7]know about all her bad [D]habits
[D] [G] [A] [Cmaj7] [D]  
[D]Christmas dawns and the [C]snow lets up,
And the [D]sun hits the handle of her [G]heirloom cup
[D]She hides her [C]face in her hands for a [G]while,
Says [D]look here child
Your father's pride was his [G]means to prov[A]ide,
And he's [Cmaj7]servin' three years for that [D]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
Sights and sounds of the [G]people goin' '[A]round
Every[Cmaj7]body's in step with the [D]season
[D] [G] [A] [Cmaj7] [D] [D]
