Here are the guitar chords and lyrics for 'Maybe the Madman?' by The Troggs:

Maybe the Madman? (C. Britton, 1968)

VERSE

B-A-B-A throughout

Study [B] your affection [A]
Trace the mines of [B] thoughts and untapped [A] wisdom
Trapped behind your eyes
How can you release the tension
Caused by your imagination
Camouflaged by knowing that the images you dwell upon
Conflict with the reality of life

CHORUS

[G#m}Maybe the [B]madman was {F#m]right
The [F#m]sun travels [Am] on round the [Em]world and keeps [B]shining while we sleep at [F#m]night
[G#m]Maybe the [B]sky doesn't [F#m]cry
The [F#m] raindrops are [Am] just conden [Em] sation, not tears cried for [B] children that lied [F#m]

VERSE

Building fairy castles in a hostile space of undiscovered skies
Expressing childhood fantasies and sense of all security explaining time and dreams of heathen life

CHORUS

Maybe the madman was right
The sun travels on round the world and keeps shining while we sleep at night
Maybe the sky doesn't cry
The raindrops are just condensation not tears cried for children that lied

VERSE

Helplessly I search in vain to find the reasons for all the pain and happiness
A reason why we live today, the purpose and uncertainty of why we keep on living for tomorrow
