This World Goes Round And Round

Chords and lyrics for This World Goes Round And Round by Tom Paxton

G 
This world goes round  
C 
and 
 
 
G 
round.
 
Green leaves will turn  
D7 
to
G 
brown.
D7 
What goes up must come down.
C 
It all comes back to  
G 
you.
 
D7 
Just like a spinning wheel,
C 
the world goes round and  
G 
round.
 
G 
People knocking on the golden door.
D7 
They got plenty but they all want more.
C 
They don’t know what they’re looking for.
G 
And the world goes  
D7 
round 
 
and
G 
round.

Marvellous Toy

Chords and lyrics for Marvellous Toy by Tom Paxton

 
When  
D 
I was just a  
A7 
wee little lad,  
D 
full of health and  
A7 
joy,
 
My  
G 
father homeward  
D 
came one night and  
E 
gave to me a  
A7 
toy.
 
A  
D 
wonder to be
A7 
hold it was, with  
D 
many colors  
G 
bright,
 
And the moment I lay  
D 
eyes on it, it be
E 
came my  
A7 
heart’s 
 
delight.
 
It went  
D 
zip when it moved and  
A7 
pop when it stopped,
 
And  
D 
whirrrrrr when it stood  
G 
still.
 
{end_of_chorus}
D 
A7 
D 
 
The  
D 
first time that I  
A7 
picked it up, I  
D 
had a big  
A7 
surprise,
 
‘Cause  
G 
right on the bottom were  
D 
two big buttons that  
E 
looked like big green  
A7 
eyes.
 
I  
D 
first pushed one and  
A7 
then the other,  
D 
then I twisted its  
G 
lid,
 
And when I set it  
D 
down again,  
E 
here is what it  
A7 
did.
 
It  
D 
first marched left and  
A7 
then marched straight,  
D 
then marched under a  
A7 
chair,
 
And  
G 
when I looked where  
D 
it had gone it  
E 
wasn’t even  
A7 
there.
 
I  
D 
started to cry but my  
A7 
daddy laughted ’cause he  
D 
knew that I would  
G 
find,
 
When I turned around my  
D 
marvelous toy would be  
E 
chugging on be
A7 
hind.
 
The  
D 
years have gone by too  
A7 
quickly it seems, now  
D 
I have my own little  
A7 
boy,
 
And  
G 
yesterday I  
D 
gave to him my  
E 
marvelous little  
A7 
toy.
 
His  
D 
eyes nearly popped right  
A7 
out of his head and he  
D 
gave a squeal of  
G 
glee,
 
Neither one of us knows just  
D 
what it is but he  
E 
loves it just like  
A7 
me.
