Only Shadows - The Merry Goes 'Round
by Jewel
tabbed by kjm030584
Standard Tuning, Capo III
Intro: G - Em - C9 - D - G
Think there's a monster in your [G]closet
Even if you [C9]lock [G]it
You think you can't [C9]stop [G]it
No [D]matter how[D/C] hard you [G]try
Well isn't he a [G]sleepy head
Close your eyes and [C9]go to [G]bed
With good thoughts [C9]in your [G]head
D D/C G (mute)
Tell you why it's gonna be alright
They're only [G]shadows, they're only [C9]shadows
They're only [Em]shadows [D]in [D/C]the [G]night
You walk [G]down the street
A creepy feeling [C9]starts to [G]creep
And suddenly you [C9]feel your [G]feet
Movin [D]faster [D/C]till they [G]fly
You look [G]all around
You look [C9]up and you look [G]down
But still there's [C9]nothing you have [G]found
D D/C G (mute)
And I will tell you why
They're only [G]shadows, They're only [C9]shadows
They're only [Em]shadows [D]in [D/C]the [G]night
[Am]There are lots of [C]things that may go [G]bump in the night
[Am]But if you use [C]your brain you will [G]be alright
[Am]A scary noise is just the faucet drippin
and the [C]thump, thump, thump is the dog's tail waggin
the [Am]thing you saw out the corner of your [D]eye
was just a shadow in the [G]night[C9] [G]
You [C9]can't have [G]shadows
With[C9]out the [G]light
No hel[C9]lo without good[G]bye
No [D]laughter [D/C]till you [G]cry
that's just [G]part of life
the great [C9]compro[G]mise
you are [C9]truly [G]wise
D D/C G (mute)
if you see with your own eyes
They're only [G]shadows, they're only [C9]shadows
they're only [Em]shadows [D]in [D/C]the [G]night
they're only [G]shadows, they're only [C9]shadows
they're only [Em]shadows [D]in [D/C]the [G]night
Outro: (G cont'D) - Em - C9 - D - G
