[Intro]
D  A  G  E  F#m  G  A

[Verse]
D G DThe month of October, nights drawing in
A DA crescent moon hung in the sky
G DSmoke out of chimneys, a frost on the ground
G Em7 A GNothing is passing us by..
[Verse]
D GMe and a friend, with an evening to spare
D GMy shirt collar whiter then white
A D GWe talked our way down to the middle of town
D A DWith the music and movement and light
[Verse]
G DI rode the big wheel and got stuck at the top
A DWith the loveliest girl at the fair
G DWe had a different view of the old town hall clock
G Em7 A GAs we swung to-and-fro in the air..
[Verse]
D GShot on the rifle range, knocked them all down
D GMissed at the coconut shy
A D GClosed eyes on the waters, we're spinning so fast
D A DWe thought we were going to die
[Chorus]
A GAt the Talk Of The Town, you've got to be old enough
D G ADown by the boxing booth, acting all rough and tough
D GThe thrills and the spills of it, I had my share
D Bm7 A DWe were coming together for Banbury Fair
[Instrumental] D A G E F#m G A [Verse]
D G DTo the Teller Of Fate, we both had a go
A DTo see if she proved to be wrong
G DWe palmed her with silver, held onto our breath
G Em7 A GShe gazed in her huge crystal ball..
[Verse]
D G"Seeing an animal, seven hands high
D GGalloping wild and free
A D GNow the picture is fading, I see nothing more
D A DBut a very good omen, you'll see"
[Instrumental] D A G E F#m G A D G D A D D G D G Em7 A G D G D G G A D G D A D A [Verse]
DWe bet on a horse, promised another win
DWith the name on our ticket, Live Duck
G DSo slow, even slower, she was the last post
DI thought we were in with some luck
[Verse]
DJumping into the air, "Damn, you bet mine"
GA winner right out of the blue
A D GOur hearts were in laughter as we both realised
D A DThat's what the old gypsy knew
[Chorus]
A GAt the Talk Of The Town, you've got to be old enough
D G ADown by the boxing booth, acting all rough and tough
D GThe thrills and the spills of it, I had my share
D Bm7 A DWe were coming together for Banbury Fair
[Chorus]
A GAt the Talk Of The Town, you've got to be old enough
D G ADown by the boxing booth, acting all rough and tough
D GThe thrills and the spills of it, I had my share
D Bm7 A DWe were coming together for Banbury Fair
D Bm7 A D(Coming together for Banbury Fair)
D Bm7 A DComing together for Banbury Fair
D Bm7 A G A D(Coming together for Banbury Fair)
