Capo 2nd fret

INTRO
C G F C
Spoken: But he ain't no freak, and I'm shure, he ain't no geek. 

VERSE 1
         C                                   F
He's the star of Captain Midnite's travelin' show
   C                        F
He came to that circus many moons ago.
    F                               C              F
His mother's in your storybook, she loved a jungle king,
         C                    G
Left him standin' there alone inside the center ring.

VERSE 2
     C                                 F
In a bamboo cage he crossed the ragin' sea,
  C                                F 
A livin' page torn clean from history.
  F                       C               F 
A hairy, scary, legendary screamin' souvenir,
C                               G
Don't you get too close to him, don't you get too near.

CHORUS
         F                 C
He's the wild man from Borneo,
    E                 F
The wild man from Borneo.
   C                   G
We come to see what we wanna see,
       F                                C
Ah, we come to see but we never come to know.

INSTRUMENTAL
F C E F C G F C

VERSE 3
    C                             F
The tattooed lady left the circus train
C                            F
Lost all her pictures in the rain.
   F                              C                  F
He wonders if she's happy, as the midway lights grow dimmed
   F                               G
He wonders if she'll ever know the mark she left on him.

CHORUS
         F                  C
He's the wild man from Borneo, 
    E         F
The wild man ...
   C                   G     
We come to see what we wanna see,
       F                                C
Ah, we come to see but we never come to know.

    C                    G
You come to see what you want to see,
        F                                  C
Ah, you come to see, but you never come to know.
