The Smile of a Clown
recorded by Webb Pierce
written by Marijohn Wilkin and Fred Burch
C                            F      C
Pain big pain keeps right on hurting me
                        F       C
You left me lonely as a boy can be
I've got to smile so it don't show
    C                    G7                     C
But everybody knows  I'm wearing the smile of a clown
                                       F         C
Laugh clown laugh clown I think that's what they say
                     F        C
Oh how long can I go on  this way
Telling jokes all over town
C                          G7                     C
Knowing all the while  I'm wearing the smile of a clown
G7                          C
Sure I'm laughing laughing  to keep from crying crying
D7                         G7
But I'm just hiding hiding  the hurt you left my darling
C                    F       C
Why oh why must I go on this way
                        F     C
You left me lonely only yesterday
F                            C
I looked in the mirror dear  saw a face and a tear
G7                     C
Wearing the smile of a clown
Repeat #3
