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

                  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
