Merry-go-round -- Antje Duvekot -- CAPO III
Tabbed by ear by Travis Hussey, mr_flycstr@yahoo.com

D6=X0043X    Bm9=X0423x       D7+=X00220    G=35540X   
  
h = hammer-on w/ index finger (fairly random pattern in song; improvise)

Intro: [hD5, hD5, hD6, Bm9-A7s4] x2

Someone is tossing petals in a stream, somewhere              hD5, hD5
someone is standing at the foothills of their dreams. And     D6, D5
someone got a paint brush is painting over doubts, someone    D5, hD5
opened up his eyes and saw the sun coming out.                D6, D5

Someone was captive and found the courage to get off, throw a D5, D5
boulder in the well, somewhere the rain has stopped.          D4, D5
Someone is finding the place where they belong.               hD5, D6-D5
(hey, hey)                                                D6, Bm9-A7s4

Well, everyday is summer, somewhere in the world and the        
summer boys are headed for the thoughts that kiss the girls w/ their
impatient hands groping money, breast, & curls, they are 
filled with desire.

And high in the hills there's a baby being born as
forgiveness and peace wash over bruises and sores, people
bridging the distance over nettles and thorns.

Chorus:
And everyone aboard on the merry-go-round                  hD5, hD5
some things will rise up so that others come down. If the  D4, D4
Devil don't dance, heaven won't shine it's a               D5, D5
mighty thick haze and it's a pretty thin line. If the      D7+, D7+

faucet is tight enough, the love won't flow, if the        D5, D5
love isn't bright enough the corn won't grow, if the       D4, D4
night isn't dark enough the moon won't glow.               D5, D6
hey! (1st time only)                                     D6, Bm9-A7s4

Intro x1/2

A rich man counting money, tired man counting sheep while the      D5
saint man counts his blessings, the angry man his beans. There's a D6, D5
million people pray-ing, raising up their eyes to what turns       D5
out to be the same god, the same sky. And we are                   D6, D5

slightly scared of death, a little bit afraid so we           D5
celebrate everything we can think to celebrate. We shall      D4, D5
sing out loud to keep the hounds away.                        D5, D6-D5
                                                              D6, Bm9-A7s4
Chorus
 Bridge: (pluck open 5th string when progressing from Bm to G)
Well, prisons will crumble, and governments will fall it's the   Bm, G
order of freedom to be preceded by walls. 'Cause the             D5, D7+
truth would be worthless, if no one ever lied so we              Bm, G
carry our shame in the interest of pride. And we                 D5, D7+
have all these questions to make us go roam, and we              Bm, G
got all this distance to make us come home. As the               D5, D7+
sun burns the child learns the tide churns the world...          Bm, D7+
turns.                                                     G (hold), D7+

Chorus: (hold chords w/ tap for 1st half)
And everyone aboard on the merry-go-round                  hD5
some things will rise up so that others come down. If the  D4
Devil don't dance, heaven won't shine it's a               D5
mighty thick haze and it's a pretty thin line. If the      D7+

faucet is tight enough, the love won't flow, if the        D5, D5
love isn't bright enough the corn won't grow, if the       D4, D4
night isn't dark enough the moon won't glow.               D5, D6
                                                     End - D6, D4-hD5
