Death of a Clown

C   G   F   C   G  G7

   C                    G            G7
My makeup is dry and it cracks on my chin
    F                      C           G
I'm drowning my sorrows in whiskey and gin
    C                         G        G7
The lion tamer's whip doesn't crack anymore
    F                            C            G
The lions they won't bite and the tigers won't roar
F        Dm        C        G
La la la La la la  La la la La
    Dm                      C          G
So  let's all drink to the  death of a clown
C                        G            G7
Won't someone help me to break up this crown
F                      C          G
Let's all drink to the death of a clown

La la la la la la la la la la

Let's all drink to the death of a clown

The old fortune teller lies dead on the floor

Nobody needs fortunes told anymore

The trainer of insects is crouched on his knees

And frantically looking for runaway fleas

La la la la la la la la la la

Let's all drink to the death of a clown

So won't someone help me to breakup this crown

Let's all drink to the death of a clown
La la la la la la la la la la

Let's all drink to the death of a clown
C                 G        G7
La la la la la la la la la la
F                 C        G
La la la la la la la la la la


From: Bill Armstrong Date: Thu, 14 Mar 1996 20:02:42 -0500 Subject: Death of a Clown As per the chord file for above: F Dm C G La la la La la la La la la La....I believe that the chord sequence should be F Dm Bb Eb La la la La la la La la la La. Be seeing you,
Date: May 8, 1999 5:38 PM From: Benjamin Tebdi Since I tried to play both versions while listening to the CD I think that Bill Armstrong's version is right (F/Dm/Bb/Eb). Try to play the Eb using a four string barre in the first fret, in this case it's much easier than anyother fret.
Date: July 24, 2008 From: Jimmy Haigh The easiest way to play Eb is to slide the normal 'C' major shape up 3 frets and leaving an open G string (don't play the top E either).
