Subject: Re: REPOST: Circus Left Town

In fact I was the one who posted the original version of The Circus Left Town.
I only discovered my mistake when it was noted in the transcription below that
I had mixed up the G#7 and the F#7 chords. I have corrected the mistake in
the attached text. Apologies for the error. Enjoy the song.
