Verse 1:

(G) C
     Baby,
Although I chose this lonely life,
              G
It seems it's strangling me now.
C
 All the wild men,
Big cigars, gigantic cars;
            G
They're all laughing at me now.

Bridge 1:

             Am    Em
Oh I've been used,
I've been taken,
      Am
For a fool;
          Em
Oh what a fool,
                Am    Em
I broke all the rules.

Chorus 1:

      F                     C
But I won't let the show go on.

Verse 2:

C
 Baby, look there's,
An enormous crowd of people,
                G
And they're all after my blood.
  C
I wish maybe they'd tear down,
The walls of this theatre,
           G
And let me out, let me out.

Bridge 2:

                Am    Em
Oh I've been so blind,
            Am
I've wasted time,
                           Em
Wasted, wasted, oh so much time.
               Am
Walking on the wire;
     Em
High wire;

Chorus 2:

      F                     C
But I won't let the show go on.

Verse 3:

C  G, C  G

Bridge 3:

                Am    Em
Oh I've been so blind,
            Am
I've wasted time,
                           Em
Wasted, wasted, oh so much time.
               Am
Walking on the wire;
     Em
High wire;

Chorus 3:

      F                     C
But I won't let the show go on.

Verse 4:

C
 Baby,
I wish you'd help me escape,
            G
And help me get away.
C
 Leave me outside my address,
                   G
Far away from this masquerade.

Bridge 4:

             Am
I've been so used,
               Em
I've been so a-bused,
            Am
I've been a fool,
                Em
I broke all the rules
             Am
I've been so used,
         Em
Oh and a-bused;

Chorus 4:

      F
But I won't let the show go...
I said I won't let the show,
                          C
Oh, won't let the show go on.
