DEATH OF A CLOWN
Written by Dave Davies and Ray Davies

4 beats per chord (cut time, swing eighths)   This is not the way the guitar
'WALK' and 'LICK' are 8-beat figures          was originally recorded but it
described in TAB below                        is a great way to perform solo.
(capo at third fret)                          Capo offers choice of lower keys.

INTRO:
(piano melody)           (gtr enters)
(A  A  E7  E7  D  D  A)  E7-WALK

VERSE:
   A         A          E7           E7
My makeup is dry and it cracks on my chin
    D           D          A          E7-LICK
I'm drowning my sorrows in whisky and gin
    A            A            E7        E7
The lion tamer's whip doesn't crack any-more
    D                D             A            E7-LICK
The lions they won't fight and the tigers won't roar

CHORUS:
D         Bm        G         C   C
Lah la-la lah la-la lah la-la laah___
   D         D            A          E7-WALK
So let's all drink to the death of a clown
A             A          E7            E7
Won't someone help me to break up this crown
D         D            A          E7   E7
Let's all drink to the death of a clown
D         Bm        G         C   C
Lah la-la lah la-la lah la-la laah___
D         D            A          E7-WALK
Let's all drink to the death of a clown

VERSE:
    A           A           E7          E7
The old fortune teller lies dead on the floor
D      D              A        E7-LICK
Nobody needs fortunes told any-more
    A          A          E7              E7
The trainer of insects is crouched on his knees
    D           D           A       E7-LICK
And frantically looking for runaway fleas

CHORUS:
D         Bm        G         C   C
Lah la-la lah la-la lah la-la laah___
D         D            A          E7-WALK
Let's all drink to the death of a clown
   A             A          E7            E7
So won't someone help me to break up this crown
D         D            A          E7   E7
Let's all drink to the death of a clown
D         Bm        G         C   C
Lah la-la lah la-la lah la-la laah___
D         D            A          E7   E7  E7-WALK
Let's all drink to the death of a clown
