Molly  John Denver

Capo 4
[C]When I was a young man, I ran away from home
Dm (Dm riff)
I went to join the circus
Went to see the [F]cotton candy [G]whirl
And make me lots of [C]money[C/B] on my [Am]own
For [C]Molly, o[C/B]h my [Am]pretty Molly
But she's [F/C]waiting all a[C]lone
[F/C]Someday soon I [C]will re[F]turn [G]to h[C]er[Cmaj7]
[C]Then I made the big time, Bright lights show biz!
Dm (Dm riff)
I'm really in the circus!
There's only [F]one thing [G]wrong;
I haven't saved a [C]penny [C/B]on my [Am]own
For [C]Molly, o[C/B]h my [Am]pretty Molly
But she's [F/C]writing every [C]day
[F/C]Molly under[C]stands so [F]it's [G]ok[C]ay[Cmaj7]
(This section isn't entirely accurate to John Denver's version but it sounds fine)
[Cm]Ride a windy box car
See a thousand children [Em]young and old
[Dm]Oh that grease paint smile
Can [Am]hide your soul
[Cm]Here comes a carrousel
Guess which town it is
F[Em]eel the thrill!
[Dm]Grease paint covers everything
But w[F]inter's chill
[C] [Dm] [F] [G] [C] [C/B] [Am] [C] [C/B] [Am] [F] [C] [F] [C] [Cmaj7] 
Dm (Dm riff)
I'm reading Molly's letter
The ink is [F]fading
[G]And the page is turning [C]yellow
[C/B]Long a[Am]go I [C]promised Molly[C/B] [Am]
Don't you know [F]I[C]
[F]I will close my [C]eyes and [F]go [G]to [C]her[Cmaj7] [C]
Dm Riff
