Verse 1:
         A                        E 
 	 Now i've been quite the traveler
              F#m             C#m
 	 Ever since i hit the road
                 D              A
 	 And the sullen county carnival
             D               E 
 	 Has been my earn in gold


Verse 2:
         A                E  
 	 I've been quite alone
 	  F#m              C#m
 	 Since i remember when
           D             A
 	 I turned my ultimatums
               D        E          A 
 	 Into chips and cashed them in


Verse 3:
         A                   E
 	 I used to run the Ferris wheel
             F#m               C#m 
 	 But that'd be hard to prove
                  D              A      
 	 I can't stand to see a rolling wheel
           D                    E
 	 Propped up so it can't move


Verse 4:
         A                   E  
 	 I used to run the carousel
             F#m                    C#m  
 	 Hell,that's just round and round
           D                       A
 	 I never liked to see them ponies
                D       E      A 
 	 Painted up and bolted down


Chorus:
          A                  E              F#m             D  
 	 The only thing that keeps me from stayin' here is leavin'
          A                  E               F#m             D  
 	 The only thing that saves me from it all is i'll be gone
         A                  E               F#m               D 
 	 Just when i could trust in all the things that i believe in
         A               E          F#m  
 	 I had to pack it up and move along
            D                           E           A  
 	 And i'll tell you the boys i'm not the only one


Verse 5:
         A                           E
 	 I was a straight man at the ring toss
             F#m             C#m
 	 But that was just a jaunt
             D                A            
 	 I can't see throwin' rings around 
            D                    E 
 	 Things you don't really want


Verse 6:
         A                          E 
 	 I could run the roller coaster
             F#m                 C#m
 	 But that might break my heart
            D          A
 	 So much hard travelin'
                 D        E         A  
 	 Just to wind up where you start

 	 
Verse 7:
         A                   E 
 	 Now i just work the gateway
            F#m            C#m
 	 And i'm pretty satisfied
            D               A 
 	 My little booth is red and blue
            D             E
 	 And i just sit inside


Verse 8:
         A                E
 	 I just take your money
                 F#m             C#m 
 	 And give tickets out in trade
          D          A     
 	 Think about my life
                      D   E     A
 	 And all the promises i made


Chorus bis:

 	   A                  E              F#m             D  
 	 The only thing that keeps me from stayin' here is leavin'
          A                  E               F#m             D  
 	 The only thing that saves me from it all is i'll be gone
         A                  E               F#m               D 
 	 Just when i could trust in all the things that i believe in
         A               E          F#m  
 	 I had to pack it up and move along
            D                           E           F#m  
 	 And i'll tell you the boys i'm not the only one
               D                 E                 A
   	 Who's runnin' from the things he's left undone
