Jacques Levy
[D]( [C]Ta[A]b [G]from: )
[G]You should have been there when the
[B7]Time was right for the music to [C]begin
[Am]You shoulda been there when that [D]band of gypsies started rolling [G]in
You should seen it you'da [B7]swore for sure the circus came to to[C]wn
There were l[Am]adies ridin bareback and the [D]mystery man
All painted like a [G]clown
You should seen October [B7]feelin like I never felt b[C]efore
[Am]Flashin up New England skies [D]like the fires of the revoluntionary
[G]You should heard the music comin [B7]down like the hardest rain that ever
[Am]Waking up in the afternoons
With a [D]hundred lovers feedin in the same m[G]otel
Take me [D]away take me [C]away take me [G]away
Take me [D]away take me [C]away take me [G]away
Take me [D]away take me [C]away take me [G]away
Take me [D]away take me [C]away take me [G]away
[B7]To the place where the greatest show on earth is p[Em]laying
[Am]High on your highw[D]ay
[G]You shoulda seen me I've been [B7]told I had a smile upon my [C]face
[Am]Slippin from state to state e[D]nding up in a dru[G]nken state of grace
It wasn't very long ago I [B7]used to say this kind of life is [C]rough
Y[Am]ou shoulda been there but [D]I can tell you even that was not e[G]nough
Take me [D]away take me [C]away take me [G]away
Take me [D]away take me [C]away take me [G]away
Take me [D]away take me [C]away take me [G]away
Take me [D]away take me [C]away take me [G]away
