                Lonely at the Top - Randy Newman
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Randy Newman
Lonely at the Top (1972)
(Newman)
From: "Sail Away"

Here's my try at a guitar version. Such a great song to sing! Makes me feel 
good I didn't make it to the top after all. Seems to be a horrible place ...

Em          B7
 I've been around the world
Em              B7
 Had my pick of any girl

Am         B7
 Ev'rybody knows my name
Em               C
 But it's just a crazy game
Em       B7
Oh, it's lonely at the top

Listen to the people paying just for me  (instrumental)

Am                   B7
 All the applause 'n'all the parades
Em                 C
 And all the money that I've made
Em       B7           [Em]
Oh, it's lonely at the top
