Fare Thee Well, Miss Carousel

Townes Van Zandt / Townes Van Zandt: Townes Van Zandt (1969)

C Em F Em Dm G F C Em F Em Dm
Well, the drunken clown still hanging 'round, But it's plain the laughters all died down;
G F C
The tears you tried so hard to hide are flowing.
C Em F Em Dm
And a blind man with his knife in hand Has convinced himself that he understands -
G F C
I wish him well, Miss Carousel, but I gotta be a going.
Am Em Am Em
Won't you come and get me when You're sure that you don't need me then
Am Em F Em G
I'll stand outside your window - And I proudly call your name!
 
C Em F Em Dm
Well the lady's been told that all her gold Is worth so much, she can't be sold;
G F C
No time to weep, she'll later sleep tomorrow.
C Em F Em Dm
When she carries her face to the market place And bets it on the open enrage -
G F C
She can ring her bells, Miss Carousel, but the singing brings me sorrow.
Won't you come... 
 
C Em F Em Dm
Well it's always done, every mothers sun Is surely grown, and never run;
G F C
So they fight with all their might inside them.
C Em F Em Dm
When the battles been fought 'n they've all been taught That the trick is just not being caught;
G F C
Will you give 'em hell, Miss Carousel, When they're begging you to hide them.
Won't you come and get me... 
 
C Em F Em Dm
When they need a rose, your eyes felt closed; You clamped your fingers 'round your nose -
G F C
Would you say, that's anyway to judge him.
C Em F Em Dm
Well you haven't got the authority To kill him in the first degree -
G F C
But would you feel compelled, Miss Carousel, If you had something to regret in.
harp solo
C Em F Em Dm
On a velvet beach far beneath the reach Of those who come to pry and preach,
G F C
The natural man that tried to stand is falling.
C Em F Em Dm
Well how long will it be before he sees: You own his legs but his mind is free!
G F C
Only you can tell, Miss Carousel, How long will he be crawling.
Won't you come and get me... 
 
C Em F Em Dm
All the castle walls grown so tall, Seems there ain't no hope at all -
G F C
To reach the top even though you stopped your breathin'.
C Em F Em Dm
But I ain't gonna try to make you cry, The teardrops couldn't find your eye,
G F C
It's all been swell, Miss Carousel, the time has come for leaving!
Won't you come and get me when...
