[Intro]

[Verse 1]
C       Am            Em     F
  Sweet Sunday afternoon, September's golden brown
C        Am               Em            F
  Summer always fades too soon like the laughter of a clown
C  Am                   Em         F
   And shadows fill the room where sorrows come to drown
C      Am                   Em       F
  Your heart’s a lead balloon as you sink another one down
 
 
[Pre-Chorus 1]
Dm          G
  I know it numbs the way you feel
Dm              G
  Blurs what is right and what is real
Dm             Am                   G
  There's no love left you can steal
 
 
[Chorus]
        F              C
For the joker, laughs along
        Am            D
As the jester's outsmarted
        F                Am                 G
And the gambler tries to win back what he's lost
        F               C
And the sad man sings a song
        Am                  D
For the drunk and broken hearted
        F                   G
And the fool, he never knows how much it costs

[Verse 2]
C       Am           Em      F
  Sweet Sunday afternoon and all that can be heard
C       Am              Em                  F
  Is an old, familiar tune though you've forgotten half the words
C     Am                   Em         F
  And sunlight floods the room like a silent flock of birds
C     Am                 Em    F
  And hope's a red balloon, disappearing through the clouds
 
 
[Pre-Chorus 2]
Dm          G
  I know it numbs the way you feel
Dm              G
  Blurs what is right and what is real
Dm           Am                     G
  There's no one here to make a deal with
 
 
[Chorus]
        F             C
For the joker laughs along
        Am          D
And the jester's outsmarted
        F                Am                 G
And the gambler tries to win back what he's lost
            F                  C
Oh, and the sad man he sings a song
        Am                  D
For the drunk and broken hearted
        F                   G
And the fool, he never knows how much it costs

[Chorus]
                F                 C
Yeah, well, the joker, he laughs along
        Am          D
As the jester's outsmarted
        F                Am                 G
And the gambler tries to win back what he's lost
            F                     C
Oh, and the sad man, he sings a song
        Am                  D
For the drunk and broken hearted
             F                  G                C
Oh, and the fool, he never knows how much it costs
           F                  G                C
Well, the fool, he never knows how much it costs
