K:G [G]Once I was [E7]happy, but [A7]now I'm forlorn, Just [D7]like an old coat that's [G]tattered and torn. Left in this [E7]wide world to [A7]fret and to mourn, Be-[D7]trayed by a maid in her [G]teens. Now this [Em]girl that I [B7]loved she was [Em]hand-some, And I tried all I [B7]knew her to [Em]please. But I never could [B7]please her one [Em]quarter so well As the [B]man on the [Em]flying tra-[B7]peze. [D7]Oh! {i}He'd [G]float through the [E7]air with the [A7]greatest of ease,{/i} {i}This [D]daring young man on the [G]flying trapeze.{/i} {i}His movements are [E7]graceful, all [A7]girls he does please,{/i} {i}And my [D7]love he has purloined a-[G]way.{/i}
