Song Author Harry Nilsson Lyrics by: Harry Nilsson Performer: Harry Nilsson Submitted by: cazteclo
[C#]    [G#]    [Bb7]    
Well in [D#7]nineteen-forty [G#]one a happy [C#7]father had a [Bb]son   
And by [D#7]nineteen-forty [G#]four the father [C#7]walks right out the [Bb]door   
And in [D#7]forty [G#]five the mom and [C#7]son were still a[Bb]live   
But [B7]who could tell in forty six if the two were[Bb7] to survive

Well the [D#7]years were passing [G#]quickly, but not [C#7]fast enough for [Bb]him   
So he [D#7]closed his eyes through [G#]fifty five, then he [C#7]opened them up a[Bb]gain   
Then he [D#7]looked around he [G#]saw a clown and the [C#7]clown seemed very [Bb]gay   
And he [B7]set that night to join that circus cl[Bb7]own and run away

Well he [D#7]followed every [G#]railroad tra[C#7]ck and every [Bb]highway sign
And he h[D#7]ad a girl in ea[G#]ch new town [C#7]and the towns[Bb] he left behind
And the [D#7]open road was t[G#]he only road[C#7] he knew [Bb]    
But [B7]the color of his dreams was slowly turning [Bb7]into blue

Then he [D#7]met a girl, the[G#] kind of gir[C#7]l he wanted a[Bb]ll his life
She was [D#7]soft and kind a[G#]nd good to h[C#7]im, so he too[Bb]k her for a wife
And they[D#7] got a house no[G#]t far from t[C#7]own and in a [Bb]little while
The [B7]girl had seen the doctor and she came home [Bb7]with a smile

Now in n[D#7]ineteen-sixty o[G#]ne a happy f[C#7]ather had a s[Bb]on   
And by n[D#7]ineteen-sixty f[G#]our the fath[C#7]er walked rig[Bb]ht out the door
And in s[D#7]ixty five the m[G#]om and son w[C#7]ere still aro[Bb]und   
But [B7]what will happen to the boy when the circus[Bb7] comes to town


Well in nineteen-forty one a happy father had a son
And by nineteen-forty four the father walks right out the door
And in forty five the mom and son were still alive
But who could tell in forty six if the two were to survive

Well the years were passing quickly, but not fast enough for him
So he closed his eyes through fifty five, then he opened them up again
Then he looked around he saw a clown and the clown seemed very gay
And he set that night to join that circus clown and run away

Well he followed every railroad track and every highway sign
And he had a girl in each new town and the towns he left behind
And the open road was the only road he knew
But the color of his dreams was slowly turning into blue

Then he met a girl, the kind of girl he wanted all his life
She was soft and kind and good to him, so he took her for a wife
And they got a house not far from town and in a little while
The girl had seen the doctor and she came home with a smile

Now in nineteen-sixty one a happy father had a son
And by nineteen-sixty four the father walked right out the door
And in sixty five the mom and son were still around
But what will happen to the boy when the circus comes to town
