ERIC CLAPTON
CIRCUS
CD 'PILGRIM' 1998


That's my favorite track. This piece is ideal
for a guitar duo. The second one picks the chords in harmonium,
the first one- makes the solos. Below I have tabbed the guitars
separately.
Rhythm is moderate slow, 4/4.
Bar (capo) is used constantly on the second fret.
Text and expanatory notes are given between the
lines of the guitars.

Eric Clapton
Circus

Little man with his eyes on fire
And his smile so bright
In his hands are the toys you gave
To fill his heart with delight

And in the ring stands a circus clown
Holding up a knife
What you see and what you will hear
Will last you for the rest of your life

And it's sad, so sad,
There ain't no easy way round.
And it's sad, so sad,
All your friends gather round
'Cause the circus left town.

Little man with his heart so pure
And his love so fine.
Stick with me and I'll ride with you
Till the end of line.
Hold my hand and I'll walk with you
Through the darkest night.
When I smile I'll be thinking of you
And every little thing will be alright.
* * *

That's all.
Any suggestions and corrections are welcome.
Have fun.
