(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) barroom
And the lure of the gayness takes the (A7) place of our (D) dream.
(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 and 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 win you.
