Intro:
D   G   D   A  

         D    
Well the days are long, and the work is hard
          G                         D
When your childhood is spent in the fields
                                    A
And summer seemed to last a million years
    D
One day when I was just a boy
       G                       D
During one of those hot summer swells
                                             A
The locusts were silenced by the clanging of bells

    G             A         D       G
And there was the thing for which I longed
              A   D
A place where I belonged
        G              A           D     G
Where I first held the hand of the one I loved   (pause)
         G      A       D
When the circus came to town

       D    
We ate candy corns and corn dogs
       G               D
Cotton candy and candy canes
                                       A
And we shared a caramel apple by the arcade
         D                        
And when night fell, and the stars rose
    G                    D
And lights bedazzled the fair
                                     A
We rode the Ferris Wheel up into the air

    G             A         D       G
And there was the thing for which I longed
              A   D
A place where I belonged
        G              A           D     G
Where I first held the hand of the one I loved   (pause)
         G      A       D
When the circus came to town

    G                           D
And later in the fun-house, our bodies looked so strange
        G                           D
And the mirrors made our faces seem deranged
        G                 A
And the snake man, in the freak show
D             G
He got you so alarmed
         A                                 
That you ran and ran and ran right into my arms, oh oh oh

G   A   D   G    A   D  G  A  D  G .... G   A   D

         D 
The next morning, I got up
           G                 D
Wrapped my clothes up into a ball
                                       A
And I ran and ran to run away with the fair
         D         
But when I arrived, to my surprise
        G                     D     
All the tents and wagons were gone
                                             A
And they'd stolen all the happiness from the air

    G            A         D       G
And gone was the thing for which I longed
                 A   D
That place where I belonged
        G             A           D     G
Where I last held the hand of the one I loved    (pause)
         G      A
When the circus came 
         D      G
When the circus came
                A       D
When the circus came to town 


G  A  D  G ..... G  A  D

End on D
