                       "Everybody Loves A Clown"
              (Snuff Garrett - Leon Russell - Gary Lewis)


        keyboard (arr. for guitar):

                 D     Dmaj7       D6      D
           v     v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v
                ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ [2X] ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Verse 1:

          D       Dmaj7    D6        D        (D)  Dmaj7  D6  D
        Everybody loves a clown, so why don't you
          D       Dmaj7           D6           D     Em  Em/maj7  A7sus4  A7
        Everybody laughs at the things that I say and do
         G                       F#m
        They all laugh when they see me comin'
             G                      A7sus4     A7
        But you don't laugh, you just go home runnin'

          D       Dmaj7    D6        D        (D)  Dmaj7
        Everybody loves a clown, so why can't you
            G      A7sus4      D  Dmaj7  G  A7sus4
        A clown has feelings, too

Verse 2:

        I joke around at a party when you are there
        But you don't laugh, you don't look, you just don't care
        If you wonder why this clown is cryin'
        Look a little closer, inside I'm dyin'

        It's not easy to be in love, you see
               G      A7sus4      D  Dmaj7  Am7/D  D7
        When you're a clown like me

Instrumental break:

        Gmaj7         C9-5
          /  /  /  /    /  /  /  /
        Dmaj7          Am7    D7
          /  /  /  /    /  /  /  /
        Gmaj7         C9-5
          /  /  /  /    /  /  /  /
        A7sus4  A7   Bb7sus4 Bb7
          /  /  /  /    /  /  /  /

        [key changes to Bb]

Verse 3:

        Eb     Ebmaj7       Eb6     Eb      (Eb)  Ebmaj7  Eb6  Eb
        I don't know how to say that I love you
               Eb        Ebmaj7    Eb6          Eb     Fm  Fm/maj7  Bb7sus4  Bb7
        'Cause you would smile and say, tell a joke or two
         Ab                      Gm
        Yes, I'm a clown, but I don't wanna be
        Ab                         Bb7sus4  B7
        Why can't you see the other side of me
        Eb       Ebmaj7   Eb6      Eb       (Eb)  Ebmaj7
        Guess I'll be the guy who plays the part
               Ab          Bb      C [N.C.]     C B Bb A
        Of a clown with a broken heart

Coda [repeat to fade]:

         Ab                     Bb7sus4        Bb7      Eb   Ebmaj7  Gm7
        Dreamin' of your love and not knowin' where to start
