Molly chords Guitar Chords By John Denver

D
When I was a young man, I ran away from home
  Em                      (Em riff)
I went to join the circus
                G            A
Went to see the cotton candy whirl
                    D    D/C#    Bm
And make me lots of money on my own
    D       D/C#  Bm
For Molly, oh my pretty Molly
          G/D          D
But she's waiting all alone
G/D            D      G    A   D  Dmaj7
Someday soon I will return to her

D
Then I made the big time, Bright lights show biz!
     Em                  (Em riff)         
I'm really in the circus!
             G         A
There's only one thing wrong;
                  D     D/C#   Bm
I haven't saved a penny on my own
    D       D/C#  Bm    
For Molly, oh my pretty Molly
          G/D           D
But she's writing every day
G/D        D         G    A D Dmaj7
Molly understands so it's okay


(This section isn't entirely accurate to John Denver's version but it sounds fine)
Dm
Ride a windy box car
                        F#m
See a thousand children young and old
Em     
Oh that grease paint smile
    Bm
Can hide your soul
Dm
Here comes a carrousel

Guess which town it is
 F#m
Feel the thrill!
Em
Grease paint covers everything
     G
But winter's chill

D  Em G A D D/C# Bm D D/C# Bm G D G D Dmaj7

(Slowly)

     Em                   (Em riff)
I'm reading Molly's letter
           G
The ink is fading
A                       D
And the page is turning yellow
D/C#   Bm   D              D/C#  Bm
Long ago I promised Molly
               G   D
Don't you know I
G               D        G  A  D   Dmaj7 D
I will close my eyes and go to her
