The Wonder Of It All
~ Tompall Glaser

[Verse 1]
B E                            
  Candy spun in little clouds
     B                               
That melted as it touched his mouth
E                                
Made him want to smile out loud
B               F#      
Laughter in the taste
  E                                  
A spinning wheel that stood so high
B                               
Many splendored code of lights
F#                             
Carried him right to the sky
    E                 B    
And took his breath a-way
    B
And Ruby did her dance again
        B
And the way she danced entranced the men
    B
And left their minds entangled in
    E          B     
The fever of desire
  B
Upon the stage her mama sat
    B
The billboard said two tons of fat - yeah
  B
Slightly to the right of that
       E               B                  
Oh her daddy swallowed fire - yes he did

[Verse 2]
  B
A tattooed man stood tall and thin
    B
His life engraved upon his skin
     B
From birth to death and back again
         E             B                
And some wishes left unfilled - uh hmm
  B
A flipping twisting acrobat
  B
A midget with a magic hat
  B
A world of fantasy and fact
          E            B       
Where the laughter overspills
         E                       
Lord the wonder was unspeakable
    B                                
And too much to take in all at once
E                                 B       
Too much is often worser than too little
    F#      
Sometimes
E                                       
He just sat there in his daddy's truck
B                                
Deaf and dumb and thunderstruck
F#                     
The wonder of it all
           E                B     
Was almost too much for his mind

[Verse 3]
        B
Now the march of time has slowed his pace
        B
And the child is gone now from his face
    B
And with his grandson in his place
     E             B      
He remembers other times
   B
He marveled at the barker's call
        B
And the decorated canvas wall
        B
And the gamble wonder of it all
       E              B     
Echoes clearly in his mind
E                            
Candy spun in little clouds
     B                               
That melted as it touched his mouth
E                                
Made him want to smile out loud
B               F#      
Laughter in the taste
  E                                  
A spinning wheel that stood so high
B                               
Many splendored code of lights
F#                             
Carried him right to the sky
    E                B                                     
And took his breath away - ah ah ah - ah ah ah - ah ah ah

[Outro]
