This is a very simple song to play (the rhythm part, anyway).

There are really parts for two guitars in this song, but I'm too lazy to sit down and tab the lead and I just
combined the two separate rhythm parts into one since it's just the very last section below with one guitar
playing the Intro/Verse part and the other doing the D/A chords at the end of each repetition of the cycle. I
normally play with 1 guitar, bass, and drums so I kind of have to play it that way.

(He'll never sing his songs again
He'll never dance between the stars again
He'll never laugh again
No he'll never, ever laugh again ... Oh no!)

For the Outro/Lead, repeat the Chorus/Lead section - repeat/fade

Lyrics:

(1st Verse)
A         Gadd9                D  Gsus2
They have killed the Great Sun Jester
A   Gadd9              D     Gsus2    
Who danced between the stars
A         Gadd9               D  Gsus2
They have stripped him of his manhood
A       Gadd9        D    Gsus2
Sign of Venus and of Mars
A          Gadd9                    D                Gsus2
The cynics left him weepin' and the jackals left him torn
        A              Gadd9                   D              Gsus2   A
And the Jester reaches out blind hands, he can touch the stars ... no more

(Chorus)
       A              G                      D                        G D  G D
Now he took the stars in his hands and as he scattered them he'd shout
        A            G             D              G D  G D
I'm the joker of the universe, I'm what it's all about
         A            G             D                     G D  G D
Now he's dying in his grief and the hard men drag him down
          A                    G                 D          G(D) A
They have killed the wild eyed jester, they have killed the fire clown

(2nd Verse)
Now his blind eyes seek the starlight
And his fingers seek controls
To take him into space again
Where he was both young and old
The dancer's stiff with pain and they've made him kneel too long
And the madness they have driven out, they've left him cold and sick

(Repeat Chorus)

(Interlude)
A          Gadd9            D    Gsus2 D A
He'll never sing his songs again
A           Gadd9                    D    Gsus2 D A
He'll never dance between the stars again
A           Gadd9  D    Gsus2 D A
He'll never laugh again
A                    Gadd9  D        Gsus2  A
No he'll never, ever laugh again ... Ohhh   no!

Outro/Fade
A   G  D  G D
G D                 A     G  D  G D
He'll never laugh again
G D                 A     G  D  G D                  
He'll never laugh again
G D                 A     G  D  G D
He'll never laugh again
G D                 A     G     D  
He'll never laugh again    no no
      G D           G D           A    G    D  G D G D  
He'll never, he'll never laugh again

I suppose I can give you 8 days to complete this task since that seems to be how long it takes you to approve or reject tabs. I'll be back and I truly expect all of my contributions to this site to be gone when I come back.
