Intro: Am D Am D
The [Am]lights have gone [D]dim, and the [Am]people are [D]gone. [D7]And [G]clown [am11]goes [Em6]back into his [Am]cara[D]van.
[Am]Hangs up his [D]smile on a [Am]hook by the [D]door [D7]And [G]lets his [am11]ragged [Em6]coat slip to the [Am]floor.[D]
With the [F9]sound of the children's [G/F]laughter Still [C]ringing in his [D6]ears.
F+ Am* D
Laughing 'cause they're happy, They laugh to hide their fears.
G* Gm7 G7 Am*
Clown loves the children For, like him, they fear.
F+7 G/D Em* D* G*
The world does not exist tonight, And only the circus, Only the circus is real.
Dm Dm*
As real as the elephants that trumpet in the ring. Real like the trapeze, see it swing.
Dm** Dm***
Real like the man who eats real fire, Real like the lady on the high wire.
La, la... D*** A D x2
But the people have gone, his identity gone. Clown peeps through he window of his caravan.
Clown puts on his coat and goes out the door. And the distant neon lights
They shine above the town. "It's almost like a circus", thinks clown.
Then half with fear And half with delight, Shivering, shaking.
Clown stands laughing, Clown stands laughing, Clown is laughing at the night.
