[Verse 1]
Cadd9              G                D      G
       I work the high wire in the center ring,
Cadd9              G      D         G
       Defying gravity, that's my thing,
Cadd9                  G         D      G
       Guess I never wanted no regular life,
Cadd9              G             D      G
       I couldn't stand to be nobody's wife!


[Verse 2]
Cadd9                G                D            G
       Some people tell me that I'm living their dream,
Cadd9                  G           D         G
       Things in the circus ain't what they seem,
Cadd9                G               D     Em7
       Believe me, darling, it's a lonely world,
Cadd9             G         D          G
       It ain't easy for a  ...circus girl!

[Verse 3]
Cadd9           G                 D       G
       Nobody knows you when you come to town,
Cadd9                     G                 D         G
       You're somebody's hero, or you're somebody's clown,
Cadd9                     G         D       Em7
       And you hope like hell it'll be e - nough,
             Cadd9          G             D        G
'Cause you're  ...nobody's baby when the sun comes up!


[Bridge]
         Cadd9                    G
You can     ...dazzle 'em with beauty,
         Cadd9                    G
Make 'em     ...laugh until they cry,
         Cadd9                          Em7
You can    ...give 'em the thrill of a lifetime,
          Am    Em7       Cadd9   Csus2 Cadd9   Csus2 Cadd9
But they always say good - bye!


[Verse 4]
Cadd9                   G          D       G
       It's just that sometimes I get so tired...
Cadd9                G             D         G
     ...Of going nowhere on that  ...little wire,
Cadd9                G               D        Em7
       I'd like to plant my feet on ...solid ground,
Cadd9                G             D        G
       But God have mercy, it's a long way down!

[Verse 5]
Cadd9                   G              D          G
       So I climb the ladder, right on up to the sky,
Cadd9                G           D         G
       I don't look down, and I don't ask why,
Cadd9                  G              D          Em7
       And just for a moment, I'm on top of the world------,
     Cadd9             G              D          G
Yeah,   ...just for a moment, I'm a   ...circus girl!
