Top Of The World
Performed by The Dixie Chicks
From the album "Home"
Tabbed by Izzylou

Capo 2

             D
I wish I was smarter
                A
I wished I was stronger
             Bm
I wished I loved Jesus
            G
The way my wife does
                    D
I wished any of it were easier
            A
Instead of any longer
                     Bm 
I wish I could have stood
                      G 
Where you would have proud
                   D                     A
That won't happen now, that won't happen now

Chorus:
           G                              A
There's a whole lot of singing that's never gonna be heard
       Bm                      G 
Disappearing every day without so much as a word
     D
Somehow
G                            A
Think I broke the wings off that little song bird
       Bm                     G                      D
She's never gonna fly to the top of the world right now
            A
Top of the world

                 D
I don't have to answer
             A
Any of these questions
              Bm               G
Don't have no god to teach me no lessons
                    D
I come home in the evening
       A
Sit in my chair
                            Bm
One night they called me for supper
             G
But I never got up
                D
I stayed right there
      A
In my chair

Chorus

n.C.                   D
I wished I would have known you
                    A
Wished I would have shown you
            Bm
All of the things
               G
I was on the inside
                 D
I pretend to be sleeping
                        A
When you come in in the morning
            Bm
To whisper goodbye
                   G 
Go to work in the rain
              D
I don't know why
            A
Don't know why

Chorus 2:
       G
Cause everybody's singing
         A
We just want to be heard
      Bm     
Disappearing everyday
            G
Without so much as a word
      D    -stop-
Some how
G                     A
Wanna grab a hold of that little song bird
Bm                          G
Take her for a ride to the top of the world
       D - stop -
Right now

- Instrumental -
  Bm, G
- Vocal wailing -
 Bm   G
Oh,  oh...  

                   Bm
To the top of the world
                   G
To the top of the world
                   Bm          x 2
To the top of the world
                   G
To the top of the world

Couple of minor lyric errors, otherwise looks fine to me. Strumming pattern seems to be Down Down Up Up.

For the benefit of novices, use the transpose box to drop it 2 semitones, Capo on 4th Fret keeps you in original Key.
