Intro:
D A G E F#m G A

Verse:

  D         G       D
The month of October, nights drawing in


        A      D
A crescent moon hung in the sky


             G      D
Smoke out of chimneys, a frost on the ground


G     Em7    A G
Nothing is passing us by..


Verse:

D                  G
Me and a friend, with an evening to spare


  D            G
My shirt collar whiter then white


         A      D     G
We talked our way down to the middle of town


     D     A      D
With the music and movement and light


Verse:

               G      D
I rode the big wheel and got stuck at the top


          A      D
With the loveliest girl at the fair


                G       D
We had a different view of the old town hall clock


   G      Em7    A G
As we swung to-and-fro in the air..


Verse:

D                     G
Shot on the rifle range, knocked them all down


D           G
Missed at the coconut shy


         A       D      G
Closed eyes on the waters, we're spinning so fast


  D        A    D
We thought we were going to die


Chorus:

    A            G
At the Talk Of The Town, you've got to be old enough


D             G     A
Down by the boxing booth, acting all rough and tough


  D                   G
The thrills and the spills of it, I had my share


    D    Bm7    A    D
We were coming together for Banbury Fair


Instrumental:
D A G E F#m G A

Verse:

    D         G     D
To the Teller Of Fate, we both had a go


       A      D
To see if she proved to be wrong


                G    D
We palmed her with silver, held onto our breath


  G      Em7     A G
She gazed in her huge crystal ball..


Verse:

 D               G
"Seeing an animal, seven hands high


D         G
Galloping wild and free


          A     D      G
Now the picture is fading, I see nothing more


   D     A      D
But a very good omen, you'll see"


Instrumental:
D A G E F#m G A
D  G D  A D
D  G D G Em7 A G

Verse:

  D
We bet on a horse, promised another win


D
With the name on our ticket, Live Duck


             G      D
So slow, even slower, she was the last post


D
I thought we were in with some luck


Verse:

D
Jumping into the air, "Damn, you bet mine"


             G
A winner right out of the blue


          A       D    G
Our hearts were in laughter as we both realised


D        A    D
That's what the old gypsy knew


Chorus:

    A            G
At the Talk Of The Town, you've got to be old enough


D             G     A
Down by the boxing booth, acting all rough and tough


  D                   G
The thrills and the spills of it, I had my share


    D    Bm7    A    D
We were coming together for Banbury Fair


Chorus:

    A            G
At the Talk Of The Town, you've got to be old enough


D             G     A
Down by the boxing booth, acting all rough and tough


  D                   G
The thrills and the spills of it, I had my share

We were coming together for Banbury Fair


 D    Bm7    A    D
(Coming together for Banbury Fair)
