                Hello Folks,as I can see you enjoy Leon Russell. ME TOO
Some of the other tabs were off and just didnt do this song much justice. I'm sure 
these chords are correct. Enjoy May Carney live on!

Album:Carney(1972) Often considered the first "concept album"

Intro: C - B7 

                    Em 
I'm up on the tightwire 
                Am 
one side's ice and one is fire 
        C        G                             F#m     B7 
its a circus game with you and me 
                    Em 
I'm up on the tightrope 
                Am 
one side's hate and one is hope 
            C                   G                   D 
but the top hat on my head is all you see 
            Bm 
And the wire seems to be  
              Em 
the only place for me 
   Bm                                C 
a comedy of errors and I'm falling 

**Chorus** 
           G                D/F# 
Like a rubber-neck giraffe  
        Em             D 
you look into my past 
        C                                               B7 
well maybe you're just to blind to - see 
                    Em 
I'm up in the spotlight 
                  Am 
ohh does it feel right 
             C          G                         F#m   B7 
ohh the altitude seems to get to me 
                     Em 
I'm up on the tightwire 
                 Am 
flanked by life and the funeral pyre 
           C       G                   D          
putting on a show for you to see      {interlude: Bm - C 
           G                D/F# 
Like a rubber-neck giraffe  
        Em             D 
you look into my past  
        C                                                 B7 
well maybe you're just too blind to - see 
                     Em 
I'm up in the spotlight  
                  Am 
ohh does it feel right 
             C          G                     F#m    B7 
ohh the altitude really gets to me 
                     Em 
I'm up on the tightwire 
                 Am 
flanked by life and the funeral pyre 
            C      G                        F#m  B7 
putting on a show for you to see 

final: Em - Am - C - G - F#m - B7
