Intro.:  |(G) |(G) |(G) |(G) |(G) |(G) |(G)(D)|(G) |

(G)I grew up in a military town waiting on the sky to fall
Everybody I knew hanging around (D)wondering what to do when the (G)Draft Board called

To sing about living in a military town, (D)waiting on the sky to fall (G)

Chicken Little wasn't making nothing but noise, (D)waiting on the sky to fall (G)

Solo:  |(G) |(G) |(G) |(G) |(G) |(G) |(G)(D)|(G) |

(G)Spent a lonely lifetime rolling down the line, searching for the Holy Grail
Never once crossed my solitary mind that (D)any such consecrated (G)questfd fail
(G)Come upon an ocean and much to my chagrin, they told me that ship had sailed
Walking on the water cause I never learned to swing (D)searching for the Holy (G)Grail

(C)Searching for the Holy Grail, friends, (G)searching for the Holy Grail
Been across the oceans and now Ifm back again, (D)searching for the Holy Grail

(G)Been around enough to know a little bit now and Ifm sitting on tip of the world
Wanging on a guitar while the sun goes down and (D)singing a song about a (G)redheaded girl
(G)Was a time I would have said those days were gone, but Ifm giving it another whirl
Didn't know that I was gonna live this long, now Ifm (D)sittingf on top of the world (G)

(C)Sitting on top of the world, yfall, (G)sitting on top of the world
Eyes wide open until the Messenger calls, (D)sitting on top of the world (G)
