DWIGHT YOAKAM -- POCKET OF A CLOWN

[NO INTRO]

[VERSE 1]
[NC] Inside the pocket of a [A]clown [ooh-ah, ooh-ah, ooh-ah, ooh-ah]
Is a sad place to hang [E]around. [ooh-ah...]
Just watching smiles turn into frowns;[ooh-ah...]
Inside the pocket of a [A]clown. [ooh-ah...]

[VERSE2]
[NC] Inside the heartache of a [A]fool [ooh-ah...]
You'll learn things they don't teach in [E]school; [ooh-ah...]
And lessons there can be real cruel; [ooh-ah...]
Inside the heartache of a [A]fool. [ooh-ah...]

[BRIDGE]
[D] Hollow lies, make a [A]thin disguise
As [F#m]little drops of truth fall from your [E]eyes.

[INSTRUMENTAL - same chord progression as verse]

[BRIDGE]
[D] Hollow lies, make a [A]thin disguise
As [F#m]little drops of truth fall from your [E]eyes.

[VERSE 3]
[NC] Inside a memory from the [A]past [ooh-ah...]
Lives every love that didn't [E]last. [ooh-ah...]
Sweet dreams can start to fade real fast [ooh-ah...]
Inside a memory from the [A]past. [ooh-ah...]

[TAG]
[E]It's a real sad place to hang around;
[ooh-ah, ooh-ah, ooh-ah, ooh-ah]
Inside the pocket of a [A]clown. [ooh-ah, ooh-ah, ooooooh]
