"The Comedians" (Capo: 3rd. fret)

____Intro:

 A

____Verse: 1

   A           E            A
 I sat there alone upon the ferris wheel 
   A                              D
 a pastel colored carriage in the air 
   Bm                     F#7            Bm
 I thought you'd leave me dangling for a little while 
   Bm            Bm7           E
 a silly twist upon a childish dare 

____Verse: 2

   A             E               A
 Below I saw you whispering to another man 
     A                                  D
 who held the lever that could bring me down 
      Bm                  F#7        Bm
 he'd stop the world from turning at your command 
      Bm               Bm7                 E
 it's always something cruel that laughter drowns 

____Chorus:

     E                A      
 and I'm up while the dawn is breaking 
 A7             D
 even though my heart is aching 
                        D#dim7
 I should be drinking a toast 
           E
 to absent friends 
            Fdim7       A  E  
 instead of these comedians 
 F#m  C#7  D  A  G  D/F#  E  A 

____Verse: 3

       A               E              A
 I can hardly hear the music from the carousel 
     A                                  D
 the wind picks up, the carriage starts sway 
    F#m            C#                 F#m
 as one by one the lights go out it's closing time 
   E                                          A
 I see you take his hand and walk away, walk away 
 E  F#m  C#7  D  A  G  D/F#  E  A

____Verse: 4
 
      A                 E             A
 They say that you will always be the last to know 
      A                                 D
 they say that all that glitters is not gold 
      F#m                  C#           F#m
 it's not just that you're never coming back to me 
 E
 it's the bitter way that I was told 

____Chorus:

     A                D
 and I'm up while the dawn is breaking 
 D7             G
 even though my heart is aching 
                        G#dim7
 I should be drinking a toast 
           A
 to absent friends 
            A7          D
 instead of these comedians
