Intro: D6 D6

D6              Em
day after day, alone a hill
    D6                               Em
the man with foolish grin is keeping perfectly still
    Em7             A7                 D                    Bm
but nobody wants to know him, they can see that he's just a fool
    Em7               A7
and he never gives an answer
        Dm                      
but the fool on the hill sees the sun going down
        C7                       Dm             Dm7   D6
and the eyes in his head see the world spinning round


D6                   Em
well on his way, his head in a cloud
    D6                               Em
the man of a thousand voices talking perfectly loud
    Em7         A7                D6                  Bm
but nobody ever hears him, or the sound he appears to make
    Em7               A7
and he never seems to notice
        Dm                      
but the fool on the hill sees the sun going down
        C7                       Dm             Dm7   D6
and the eyes in his head see the world spinning round

Interlude -x2-: D6  Em

    Em7             A7                 D6                    Bm
and nobody seems to like him, they can tell what he wants to do
    Em7                A7
and he never shows his feelings
        Dm                      
but the fool on the hill sees the sun going down
        C7                       Dm             Dm7
and the eyes in his head see the world spinning round
D6    Em         D6                   Em
oh    oh  round, round, round, round, round


       Em7              A7       D6                     Bm
and he never listens to them, he knows that they're the fool
Em7             A7
they don't like him
        Dm                      
but the fool on the hill sees the sun going down
        C7                       Dm             Dm7
and the eyes in his head see the world spinning round


D6    Em         D6                   
oh    oh  round, round, round, round, round

  1. I believe you’re missing a Bb on the “sees the sun going down part,” other than that, great chords!

    Dm Bb
    but the fool on the hill sees the sun going down
    C7 Dm Dm7 D6
    and the eyes in his head see the world spinning round
