Little man with his [B/A] eyes on fire

And his smile so bright

In his hands are the [B/A] toys you gave

That fill his heart with delight

In a ring stands a [B/A] circus clown

Holding up a light

What you see and [B/A] what you hear

Will last you the rest of your life

] It’s sad, so sad

There aint no easy way round

] It’s sad, so sad

All your friends gather round

‘Cause the circus left town

Little man with his heart so pure

And his love so fine

Stick with me and I’ll ride with you

Till the end of the line

Hold my hand and I’ll walk with you

Through the darkest night

When I smile I’ll be thinking of you

And everything will be alright

The picking technique is 4 bar repeating cycle which for the most part

concentrates on the middle 4 strings, except when playing G#7. Each

vertical line represents one bar, each bar has 2 beats which are clearly

marked by the thumb and middle finger. The index finger only appears on

half beats.

Key: t = thumb

i = index finger

m = middle finger
