The Carnival Is Over - The Seekers

The intro is one beat for A and 3 beats for D.  The rest of the song is either 4 beats or two beats per chord 
except for the chorus line ‘for Pierrot and Columbine’ which has 3 beats from the G of ‘-rot’ then 1 beat of 
C on ‘Colum’ (4th beat) and back to 4 beats on the A of ‘-bine’. Parts of the verses and chorus are not sung 
on the beat so I’ve tried to indicate where the words are sung just after the chord is struck.  Listen to the 
song to hear what I mean.

A        D       A    D
/        ///     /    ///
A        D               A           A7
Say good-bye my own true lover as we sing 
          D     D7
A lover’s song     
       G      A             D         Bm
How it breaks   my heart to leave you
        G           A
now the carnival is gone

       D                A             A7
High a-bove the dawn is waking and my tears
            D     D7
are falling rain
        G   A          D     Bm        
For the car-  nival is over    
       G    A            D    D7
we may ne-    ver meet a-gain

       G    A               D       Bm
Like a drum    my heart was beating
         G    A              D      D7
and your kiss   was sweet as wine
        G     A             D       Bm
But the joys    of love are fleeting
         G       C     A         
for Pier-rot and Colum-bine

        D                A                 A7
Now the harbour light is calling this will be
              D   D7
our last good-bye
           G    A          D     Bm        
Though the car-   nival is over 
       G    A               D    D7
I will lo-    ve you ‘til I die

       G    A               D       Bm
Like a drum    my heart was beating
         G    A              D      D7
and your kiss   was sweet as wine
        G     A             D       Bm
But the joys    of love are fleeting
         G       C     A         
for Pier-rot and Colum-bine

        D                A                 A7
Now the harbour light is calling this will be
              D   D7
our last good-bye
           G    A          D     Bm        
Though the car-   nival is over 
       G    A               D    D7 
I will lo-    ve you ‘til I die
           G    A          D     Bm        
Though the car-   nival is over 
       G    A (stop)        D    
I will lo-    ve you ‘til I die
A       D       A    D    (repeat and fade)
