Sideshow – barry biggs / blue magic band

i dont think he wrote it = could be "blue magic band" 

Worked out from an old clip of “top of the pops”.
It seems to be nearly in the key of Ab , but they probably played in G then sped the tape up !.

Therefore put CAPO ON FIRST FRET and use open chord voices

Intro = (slowly) C/G/C/D/ (rest , then speed up for the main song)

Intro melody (capo covering first fret = fret numbers are the actual frets on 
guitar, NOT from the capo )
E 1441--44,14468-6-,(rest) 41--
B ----4---,--------,(rest) –-4-



VERSE 1

G          Em          Am         D            G     Em   Am    D    
Step right up, hurry, hurry - Before the show begins, my friends
G          Em           Am          D              G    Em
Stand in line, get your tickets - I hope you will attend
      C              G             C///G///    
It'll only cost you fifty cents to see
      C                Am       Am/G     D
What life has done to those like you and me

VERSE 2 – same chords as first

See the man with the broken heart - You'll see that he is sad
He's hurt so bad (So bad, so bad)
See the girl who has lost the only love she's ever had
There's got to be no sadder show to see
No doubt about it, satisfaction's guaranteed

CHORUS (x2)
           C          G                    C             D  
So let the side show begin - Hurry, hurry, step right on in
C               G            Am             D              
Can't afford to pass it by - Guaranteed to make you cry

Let the side show begin - Hurry, hurry, step right on in
Can't afford to pass it by - Guaranteed to make you cry


VERSE 3 – same chords as first

See the man who's been cryin' for a million years
So many tears (So many tears)
See the girl who's collectin' broken hearts for souvenirs
It's more exciting than a one man band
The saddest little show in all the land

CHORUS repeat 

So let the side show begin - Hurry, hurry, step right on in
Can't afford to pass it by - Guaranteed to make you cry

synth solo chords = C/G/C/G/ etc
