    'Cause the circus left town 
    Little man with his heart so pure
    And his love so fine
    Stick with me and I'll ride with you
    Till the end of the line
    Hold my hand and I'll walk with you
    Through the darkest night
    When I smile I'll be thinking of you
    And everything will be alright
    The picking technique is 4 bar repeating cycle which for the most part
    concentrates on the middle 4 strings, except when playing G#7. Each
    vertical line represents one bar, each bar has 2 beats which are clearly
    marked by the thumb and middle finger. The index finger only appears on
    half beats.
    Key: t = thumb
    i = index finger
    m = middle finger
