Intro:  
[A] [D] a few times

===== Verse 1:
[A]Yesterday A [D]child came out to [A]wonder [A4] [A]
[A]Caught A dragon-[D]fly inside A [E]jar
[A]Fearful when the [D]sky was full of [F#m7]thunder
And [D]tearful at the [Bm]falling [E]of a [A]star.

===== Chorus:
[A]And the seasons, they go [D]'round and [A]'round
[A]And the painted ponies go [D]up and [A]down.
We're [D]captive on the carousel of [A]time. [A4] [A]
[D]We can't return, we can only look [C#m]behind from where we [D]came
[D]And go [C#m]'round and 'round and [D]'round in the [E]circle [A]game.

===== Verse 2:
[A]Then the child moved [D]ten times 'round the [A]seasons [A4] [A]
[A]Skated over [D]ten clear frozen [E]streams
[A]Words like, when you're [D]older, must [F#m7]appease him
And [D]promises of [Bm]Some day [E]make his [A]dreams.

===== Chorus:
[A]And the seasons, they go [D]'round and [A]'round
[A]And the painted ponies go [D]up and [A]down.
We're [D]captive on the carousel of [A]time. [A4] [A]
[D]We can't return, we can only look [C#m]behind from where we [D]came
[D]And go [C#m]'round and 'round and [D]'round in the [E]circle [A]game.

===== Verse 3:
[A]Sixteen springs and [D]sixteen summers [A]gone now [A4] [A]
[A]Cartwheels turn to [D]car wheels through the [E]town.
[A]And they tell him: Take your [D]time. It won't be [F#m7]long now
'til you [D]drag your feet to [Bm]slow the [E]circles [A]down.

===== Chorus:
[A]And the seasons, they go [D]'round and [A]'round
[A]And the painted ponies go [D]up and [A]down.
We're [D]captive on the carousel of [A]time. [A4] [A]
[D]We can't return, we can only look [C#m]behind from where we [D]came
[D]And go [C#m]'round and 'round and [D]'round in the [E]circle [A]game.

===== Verse 4:
[A]So the years spin by [D]and now the boy [A]is twenty [A4] [A]
[A]Though his dreams have lost some [D]grandeur coming [E]true.
[A]There'll be new dreams, maybe [D]better dreams and [F#m7]plenty
[D]Before the last re-[Bm]volving [E]year is [A]through.

===== Chorus:
[A]And the seasons, they go [D]'round and [A]'round
[A]And the painted ponies go [D]up and [A]down.
We're [D]captive on the carousel of [A]time. [A4] [A]
[D]We can't return, we can only look [C#m]behind from where we [D]came
[D]And go [C#m]'round and 'round and [D]'round in the [E]circle [A]game.
[D]And go [C#m]'round and 'round and [D]'round in the [E]circle [A]game.
