High On A Hilltop

Merle Haggard

 DGD
 High on a hilltop overlooking the city
 A7DA7
I can see the bright lights as they gleam 
 DGD
And somewhere you're dancing in some dingy bar room
 A7D
And the lure of the gay life takes the place of our dream.

CHORUS
 GD
 High on a hilltop my heart cries, Oh Lord
 A7
Forgive her she knows not the way
 DGD
And give me the power to believe that some day
 A7D
High on a hilltop together we'll pray.

I can vision a rounder with a line so smooth
And a promise of riches for you
But you see not the danger, 'cause you're silly with booze
And high on a hilltop I see the devil in you.

CHORUS
