Subject: TAB: SITTING ON TOP OF THE WORLD BY AMANDA MARSHALL

SITTING ON TOP OF THE WORLD -- Amanda Marshall
Written by: Amanda Marshall, Copyright Metatune Inc. (SOCAN)


This is a pretty simple but effective tune from Amanda's first release
entitled Amanda Marshall.  Rhythm guitar pattern is quite common and played
pretty much throughout.  I've included some tablature for the lead guitar
riff as well (used in the intro and a few places as well).  What really
makes the tune is Amanda's vocal phrasing.  I've tried to match the chord
changes to the way she phrases the lyrics but don't let that throw you--the
the rhythm guitar part is pretty steady and consistent throughout the
entire
tune.  Comments most welcome at kirkjc@ccnet.com, enjoy...Kirk C.

VERSE 1:
E    A      D     A      E    A   D   A
    Never seen a sky so blue
       E         A          D     A
I've never been happy with anyone
E      A       D         A
Like I am when I'm with you
E    A           D          A          E   A   D   A
    Look at the sun shining up in the sky
        E            A         D        A
And I feel a little closer to heaven, baby
E         A        D        A
When I'm looking into your eyes

CHORUS:
       C#m              D              C#m         D         E   A   D   A
And as long as we're together, boy I'm sitting on top of the world
       C#m              D            C#m(let ring)           E   A   D   A
Wanna feel this way forever, boy I'm sitting on top of the world


VERSE 2:
E    A           D           A              E         A
    Last night I lay in the dark tryin' to figure it out
           D          A
Tryin' to talk to my heart
   E  A        D             A                E   A   D   A
But now it's morning and I still don't know why
E              A               D          A
All I know is that you got me feeling so good baby
E              A                D               A
All I know is that it feels the way that true love should
E    A            D            A      E   A   D   A
    Ain't no one luckier than you and I

CHORUS    (with additional tag:  E   A   D   A)

BRIDGE:
    C#m                  A                            E   A   D   A
And everybody's got an opinion 'bout how this should be
    F#m                     G#m  A                      E   A   D   A
But they don't understand it,    No, no they just can't see
    F#m               G#m   A     D
That I belong with you and baby, baby.  Baby, you belong with me

GUITAR SOLO (OVER VERSE)

       C#m              D              C#m         D         E   A   D   A
And as long as we're together, boy I'm sitting on top of the world
       C#m              D              C#m         D         E   A   D   A
Wanna feel this way forever,   boy I'm sitting on top of the world
       C#m              D              C#m
