High On A Hilltop  Merle Haggard

[D]High on a hilltop over[G]looking the[D] city
I can see the [A7]bright lights as they [D]gleam [A7]
And [D]somewhere you're dancing in [G]some dingy[D] bar room
And the lure of the gay life takes the [A7]place of our [D]dream.

CHORUS
[G]High on a hilltop my heart cries, Oh [D]Lord
Forgive her she knows not the [A7]way
And [D]give me the power to be[G]lieve that some [D]day
High on a hilltop to[A7]gether we'll [D]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
