Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Top Of The World  Dixie Chicks

I wish I was [D]smarter
I wished I was s[A]tronger
I wished I lo[Bm]ved Jesus
The way my w[G]ife does
I wished any of it w[D]ere easier
Instead of a[A]ny longer
I wish I could have s[Bm]tood
Where you would have p[G]roud
That won't happen n[D]ow, that won't happen [A]now
There's a w[G]hole lot of singing that's neve[A]r gonna be heard
Disappe[Bm]aring every day without [G]so much as a word
[G]Think I broke the wings off t[A]hat little song bird
She's n[Bm]ever gonna fly to the t[G]op of the world right n[D]ow
Top of the w[A]orld

I don't have to a[D]nswer
Any of these [A]questions
Don't have no [Bm]god to teach me n[G]o lessons
I come home in the e[D]vening
Sit in [A]my chair
One night they called me for[Bm] supper
But I never g[G]ot up
I stayed right t[D]here
In my [A]chair


n.c. D
I wished I would have known you

Wished I would have [A]shown you
All of the t[Bm]hings
I was on the in[G]side
I pretend to be s[D]leeping
When you come in in the [A]morning
To whisper g[Bm]oodbye
Go to work in the r[G]ain
I don't know w[D]hy
Don't know w[A]hy

Chorus 2:
Cause e[G]verybody's singing
We just w[A]ant to be heard
Disapp[Bm]earing everyday
Without so m[G]uch as a word
D -stop-
Some how
[G]Wanna grab a hold of t[A]hat little song bird
[Bm]Take her for a ride to the t[G]op of the world
D - stop -
Right now

- Instrumental -
Bm, G
- Vocal wailing -
O[Bm]h,  o[G]h...

To the top of the w[Bm]orld
To the top of the w[G]orld
Bm x 2
To the top of the world
To the top of the w[G]orld
