] Well the dru[E]nken clown still ha[G#m]nging 'round but it's pla[A]in the lau[G#m]ghters al[F#m]l died down The te[B]ars you tried so ha[A]rd to hide are flo[E]wing And a blind[E] man with his knife[G#m] in hand has convin[A]ced himse[G#m]lf that he und[F#m]erstands I wish[B] him well, miss Carousel, but [A]I gotta be a go[E]ing {soc} W[C#m]on't you come and ge[G#m]t me when You're s[C#m]ure that you don't ne[G#m]ed me then I'll st[C#m]and outside your wi[G#m]ndow and pro[A]udly call your na[G#m]me [G#m] [B] {eoc} Well the lady's been told that all her gold is worth so much she can't be sold No time to weep, she'll later sleep tomorrow When she carries her face to the market place and bets it on the open enrage She can ring her bells, miss Carousel, but this singing brings me sorrow {comment:Chorus} But it's always done, every mothers sun is surely grown, and never run So they fight with all their might inside them When the battles been fought 'n they all been taught that the trick is just not being caught Will you give 'em hell, miss Carousel, when they're begging you to hide them When they need a rose, your eyes felt closed You clamped your fingers around your nose Would you say, that's anyway to judge him Well you haven't got the authority too kill him in the first degree But would you feel compelled, miss Carousel, if you had something to regret in {comment:Solo over chorus} On velvet beach far beneath the reach of those who come to pray and preach The natural man that tried to stand is falling Well how long will it be before he sees you own his legs but his mind is free only you can tell , miss Carousel, how long will he be crawling {comment:Chorus} All the castle walls grown so tall Seems there ain't no hope at all to reach the top even though you stopped for breathing But I ain't gonna try to make you cry the teardrops couldn't find your eyes It's all been swell, miss Carousel, but the time has come for leaving {comment:Chorus ( x 4)} > We all discover the music of Townes Van Zandt through other people's > covers of his material. For me it was the Waylon & Willie cover of Pancho > And Lefty. No matter the path you've trod to get there, once you've > discovered Townes, you've unearthed yourself America's greatest living > songwriter.
