The Circle Game

      C                  F                          C             G  
    Yesterday a child came out to wonder,  
      C                      F                G     Bb  
    caught a dragonfly inside a jar,  
      C                       F                     Em  
    fearful when the sky was full of thunder,  
             F                  C      G       C  
    and tearful at the falling of a star.  

        C                             F                                C            G  
    Then the child moved ten times 'round the seasons,  
        C              F                           G         Bb  
    skated over ten clear frozen streams.  
        C                                    F                     Em  
    Words like, “when you’re older”, must appease him,  
              F                C              G              C  
    and promises of someday make his dreams.  

 
                C                         F               C  
And the seasons, they go'round and round,  
               C                          F           C  
and the painted ponies go up and down,  
F                                                      C  
    we’re captive on a carousel of time.  
F                                                           Em                            F  
    We can’t return, we can only look behind from where we came  
              C                                                      G       C          F C F  
and go round and round and round In the circle game.  

      C                             F                           C               G  
    Sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now,  
      C                         F                                   G          Bb  
    cartwheels lost to car wheels through the town.  
                   C                             F                       Em  
    And you tell him, “Take your time, it won’t be long now,  
                  F                         C          G         C  
    till you drag your feet to slow the circles down.”  

                 C                       F                            C        G  
    So the boy could be tomorrow, now he’s twenty,  
                         C                                   F                        G        Bb  
    though his dreams have lost some grandeur coming true.  
                        C                              F                             Em  
    There’ll be new dreams, maybe better dreams, and plenty,  
         F                      C          G           C  
    before the last revolving year is through.  

                C                         F               C  
And the seasons, they go round and round,  
               C                          F           C  
and the painted ponies go up and down,  
F                                                      C  
    we’re captive on the carousel of time.  
F                                                           Em                            F  
    We can’t return, we can only look behind from where we came,  
              C                                 F  
and go round and round and round,  
              C                                 F  
and go round and round and round,  
              C                                 F  
and go round and round and round,  (in the circle game).
