    THE GREAT SUN JESTER(MICHAEL MOORCOCK/JOHN TRIVERS/ERIC BLOOM)

    A-2-3-4-/G-2-3-4/D-2-3-4/G-2-3-4/ x2
    [A]They have [G]killed the Great Sun [D]Jes[G]ter
    [A]Who [G]danced between the [D]stars[G]
    [A]They have [G]stripped him of his [D]man[G]hood
    [A]Signs of [G]Venus and of [D]Mars[G]

    [A]The cynics [G]left him weeping
    And the [D]jackals have left him [G]torn
    And the [A]Jester reaches [G]out blind hands
    He can [D]touch the stars[G]
    No [A]more(/G-2-3-4-/D-2-3-4-/G-2-3-

    And he [A]took the stars[G]in his hands
    And as he [D]scattered them he’d sho[G]ut
    “I’m the [A]joker of the [G]universe
    I’m [D]what it’s all abo[G]ut�
    Now he’s [A]dying in his [G]grief
    And the[D] hard men drag him [G]down
    They have [A]killed the wild-eyed [G]jester
    They have [D]killed the [G]fire [A]clown
    [G-2-3-4/D-2-3-4/G-2-3-4/]

    [A]Now his [G]blind eyes seek the [D]star[G]light
    [A]And his [G]fingers seek con[D]trols[G]
    [A]To [G]take him into [D]space a[G]gain
    [A]Where he [G]was both young and [D]old [G]

    [A]The dancer’s [G]stiff with pain
    And they’ve [D]made him kneel too [G]long
    And the [A]madness they have[G]driven out
    They’ve [D]left him co[G]ld and [A]sane(G-2-3-4-/D-2-3-4/G-2-3-4-/
    A-2-3-4/G-2-3-4-/D-2-3-4-/G-2-3)

    And he [A]took the stars [G]in his hands
    And as he [D]scattered them he’d sho[G]ut
    “I’m the [A]joker of the [G]universe
    I’m [D]what it’s all abo[G]ut�
    Now he’s [A]dying in his [G]grief
    And the[D] hard men drag him [G]down
    They have [A]killed the wild-eyed[G]jester
    They have[D] killed the [G]fire [A]clown(/G-2-3-4/
    D-2-3-4/G-2-3-4/)

    [A]He’ll never [G]sing his songs a[D]gain [G]
    [A]He’ll never [G]dance between the stars a[D]gain [G]
    [A]He’ll never [G]laugh a[D]gain [G]
    [A]No he’ll never, ever [G]laugh a[D]gain [G]
    Oh [A]no! (G-2-3-4-/D-2-3-4-/G-2-3-4-/
    A-2-3-4-/G-2-3-4-/D-2-3-4-/
    [G]He’ll never laugh a[A]gain (G/D/
    [G]He’ll never laugh a[A]gain
    repeat and fade . . .
