verse 1

             A     D      G

If there's a smile on my face,

D          A               D         G

it's only there trying to fool the public

D            A             D       G

But when it comes down to fooling you,

D           A              D          G

now honey that's quite a different subject

D      A      D        G    D      A       D        G

Don't let my glad expression give you the wrong impression

D           A  D G   D          A   D

Really I'm sad, oh sadder than sad

       G             D          A   D

You're gone and I'm hurting so bad

        G        D             A  D  G  D

Like a clown I pretend to be glad

chorus

                  E                  C#/F

Now there's some sad things known to man

           F#m             D                    (play intro riff)

But ain't too much saddre than the tears of a clown

When there's no one around

verse 2

If I appear to be carefree

It's only to camouflage my sadness

in order to shield my pride I try

To cover this hurt as a show of gladness

But don't let my show convince you that I've been happy since you

Decided to go, oh I need you so

I'm hurt and I want you to know, but for others I put on a show

verse 3

Just like Pagliacci did I try to keep my sadness hid

Smiling in the public eye, but in my lonesome room i cry

The tears of a clown
