                Capo 4

When I was a young man, I ran away from home
  Dm                      (Dm riff)
I went to join the circus
                F            G
Went to see the cotton candy whirl
                    C    C/B    Am
And make me lots of money on my own
    C       C/B  Am
For Molly, oh my pretty Molly
          F          C
But she's waiting all alone
F            C      F    G   C  Cmaj7
Someday soon I will return to her

Then I made the big time, Bright lights show biz!
     Dm                  (Dm riff)         
I'm really in the circus!
             F         G
There's only one thing wrong;
                  C     C/B   Am
I haven't saved a penny on my own
    C       C/B  Am    
For Molly, oh my pretty Molly
          F           C
But she's writing every day
F        C         F    G C Cmaj7
Molly understands so it's okay

(This section isn't entirely accurate to John Denver's version but it sounds fine)
Ride a windy box car
See a thousand children young and old
Oh that grease paint smile
Can hide your soul
Here comes a carrousel

Guess which town it is
Feel the thrill!
Grease paint covers everything
But winter's chill

C  Dm F G C C/B Am C C/B Am F C F C Cmaj7


     Dm                   (Dm riff)
I'm reading Molly's letter
The ink is fading
G                       C
And the page is turning yellow
C/B   Am   C              C/B  Am
Long ago I promised Molly
               F   C
Don't you know I
F               C        F  G  C   Cmaj7 C
I will close my eyes and go to her

Dm Riff
