[Intro]
D A G D [Verse]
D Well Tulsa’s last magician

D
Got his start at four
D Pulled a quarter from his
A
Own ear and spun it on the floor
Bm Since there’s no good tricks but

A D G
Old ones and lyin’ ain’t that hard
G He saved up all his quarters and
D
He bought a deck of cards
D And he learned ragtime piano,
D
Though his teacher thought him slow
D Got a black belt in karate
A
From a pawn shop video
Bm A And he’d practice all his worst mistakes
D G
In a dirty bathroom mirror
Em And when his mother drank,
D
He learned to disappear
[Chorus]
D And his classmates thought him funny
D
And good at sleight of hand
D He had this grand finale
A
They refused to understand
Bm A It’s hard to tell the whole truth

D G
Of a family sawed in half
D And that’s why Tulsa’s last
G D D A Bm G D
Magician left his home so fast
[Verse]
D Well down and out in Reno,
D
Broke in Santa Fe
D Turnin’ tricks on Los Sueñeros
A
Out in Californ-i-ay
Bm A Well they pushed him up against the
D G
Wall said buddy get a grip
G So he learned to set himself on fire
D
On the Las Vegas strip
D And he wandered down to Tampa,
G D
Blew everybody’s minds
D ‘Cause the crowd was

Cheap and easy there,
A
On beer and blow and wine
Bm A Said I wonder where my dollar went,
D G
How’d the flower bloom so fast
G Said I can’t reveal my secret,
D
Though they rarely failed to ask
[Chorus]
G D And the crowd all thought him funny,
G D
And good at sleight of hand
G D But he had this grand finale
A
They refused to understand
Bm A They demanded explanation when the
D G
Card pulled was their own
G And that’s why Tulsa’s last magician
D A G D
Lost his faith and headed home
[Verse]
D Well he said he’d learn computers,
G D
Like his second foster dad
D And free-range all the rabbits
A
That were livin’ in his hat
Bm A His investments all went swimmingly,
D G
He had the boss on hidden strings
G His promotions were a certainty,
D
He could make the numbers sing
D Now time and space is
G D
Easy for magic to control
D Still it was forty years of workin’
A
‘Fore he noticed he was old
Bm A Now his great escaping act is
D G
Just untying both his shoes
A And most days he’s in the
D
Easy chair, yellin’ at the news
[Chorus]
G D And the weatherman is funny
G D
And talkin’ with his hands
G D But black clouds are comin’ in,
A
And no one understands
Bm A That somebody’s true religion’s
D G
Always someone else’s joke
D G And that’s why Tulsa’s last magician
D D D
Pretty much went up in smoke
[Verse]
D So friend if you’re the

Kind that thinks no

G D
One quite gets quite what you are
D Like you’re a cobbler or mechanic
A
In this age of flying cars
Bm A If you think that you see right behind
D G
What’s right before our eyes
D You might be a small town’s
Bm D
Last magician in disguise
[Chorus]
G D Now we need you to be funny,
G D
Please be good at sleight of hand
G D ‘Cause there’s a grand finale
A
We can’t hope to understand
Bm A And there’s a 1 in 52 chance it’s
D G
All magic and it’s true
G So won’t you please help us
Bm D A G A D A D
Believe in you?
