Back on Top  Van Morrison

...BACK ON TOP... by Van Morrison
 
 -----------------................

*from 'Back On Top' (1999)*
Intro:
Em C (x3)
Am7 Bm7 Cmaj7 (x2)
[Am7] [Bm7] [G]  
Verse 1:
[Em] You came to see me,
When the [C]moon was new,
[Em] Saw you standin',
In the [C]pouring rain,
[Em] Left my message,
On the [C]window pain;
[Am7] Back on the [Bm7]street a-[Cmaj7]gain,
[Am7] Back on the [Bm7]beat a-[Cmaj7]gain,
I'm [Am7]back on the [Bm7]top a-[G]gain.
Verse 2:
[Em] Saw me climbing to,
The [C]top of the hill,
[Em] You saw me meeting with,
The [C]fools on the hill.
[Em] Learned my lesson,
And I [C]had my fill.
[Am7] Learnt it [Bm7]all in [Cmaj7]vain,
[Am7] Went through it [Bm7]all a-[Cmaj7]gain,
Now I'm [Am7]back on the [Bm7]top a-[G]gain.
Bridge 1:
[D] Always strivin', always climbing,
Way be-[C]yond my will.
[D] Same old sensation;
Isolation at the [C]top of the bill.
[D] Always seeming, like I'm moving,
But I'm [C]really going slow.
[D] What do you do,
When you get to the top
And there's [C]nowhere to go?
Verse 4:
[Em] Just how I get there,
Will be [C]anybody's guess,
[Em] With all the so called,
Trappings [C]of success.
[Em] Left all the deadbeats,
On the [C]top of the hill.
[Am7] Too busy [Bm7]raisin' [Cmaj7]Cain,
I'm [Am7]back on the [Bm7]street a-[Cmaj7]gain,
I'm [Am7]back on the [Bm7]top a-[G]gain.
Sax Solo:
Em C (x3)
Am7 Bm7 Cmaj7 (x2)
[Am7] [Bm7] [G]  
Bridge 2:
[D] Always strivin', always climbing,
Way be-[C]yond my will.
[D] Same old sensation;
Isolation at the [C]top of the bill.
[D] Always seeming, like I'm moving,
But I'm [C]really going slow.
[D] What do you do,
When you get to the top
And there's [C]nowhere to go?
Verse 5:
[Em] Just how I get there,
Will be [C]anybody's guess,
[Em] With all the so called,
Trappings [C]of success.
[Em] Left all the deadbeats,
On the [C]top of the hill.
[Am7] Too busy [Bm7]raisin' [Cmaj7]Cain,
I'm [Am7]back on the [Bm7]street a-[Cmaj7]gain,
I'm [Am7]back on the [Bm7]top a-[G]gain.
