[Intro]
Am G C D (x2)

[Verse 1]
Am                       F        C
  In our town there's no comfort around
  F          G          Em Am
  Mostly its hunger and toil
       C                F         C
  Underground you could dig for a pound 
         F          G          Em Am
  And disturb the remains of a royal

[Pre-chorus 1]
           Dm           Em                         F
  With the poor left to drown and the sick and the old
        G             Am           F          G
  Dunno what trickles down, but it sure isn't gold

[Chorus 1]
                       F         C        Em      Am
  But I'm here with my heart full, like a carnival
  Dm        Em      Am
  Sat in my vagrant car park
                F         C        Em            Am
  And no I'm not Karl Marx, but it makes me laugh
       Dm              Em         F           Am
  Like flowers you see growing on stony ground
           Dm         Em        F   C    G     F     C
  And it's time to be going, so farewell stony ground

[Verse 2]
Am                 F            C
  It's a scam that makes a rich man
      F          G        Em Am
  And this is me doing it my way
         C             F          C
  You prefer the term 'entrepeneur'
      F          G          Em  Am
  But both of us rob on the highway

[Pre-chorus 2]
         Dm        Em                        F
  I just put up my stand, then moved it along
        G          Am           F              G
  And I made a few grand long before you caught on

[Chorus 2]
                       F         C        Em      Am
  Now I'm here with my heart full, like a carnival
  Dm        Em      Am
  Sat in my vagrant car park
                F         C        Em            Am
  And no I'm not Karl Marx, but it makes me laugh
       Dm              Em         F           Am
  Like flowers you see growing on stony ground
           Dm         Em        F   C    G     F     C
  And it's time to be going, so farewell stony ground

[Instrumental]
Am G C D (x2)

[Verse 3]
Am                      F              C
  In our town there are spirits ground down
        F          G         Em Am
  While others are living in clover
              C         F          C
  they bought shares in apples and air
          F          G            Em Am
  And had everywhere mostly paved over

[Pre-chorus 3]
          Dm            Em                     F
  In this one square of planet that nobody owns
      G             Am             F      G
  You won't see the rich man drive over my bones

[Chorus 3]
                       F         C        Em      Am
  Cos I'm here with my heart full, like a carnival
  Dm        Em      Am
  Sat in my vagrant car park
                F         C        Em            Am
  And no I'm not Karl Marx, but it makes me laugh
       Dm              Em         F           Am
  Like flowers you see growing on stony ground
           Dm         Em        F   C    G     F     C
  And it's time to be going, so farewell stony ground

[Chorus 4]
                       F         C        Em      Am
  And I'm here with my heart full, like a carnival
  Dm        Em      Am
  Sat in my vagrant car park
                F         C        Em             Am
  And no I'm not Karl Marx, but it lights the dark
         Dm           Em         F           Am
  Like a fair you see showing on stony ground
           Dm         Em        F   C    G     F     C
  And it's time to be going, so farewell stony ground
