[Intro]

C F G Dm


[Verse 1]

C                     F
If you love somebody, better tell them while they’re here cause
G                           Dm
They just may run away from you
C                                 F
You'll never know what went well, then again it just depends on
G                            Dm
How long of time is left for you
C                               F
I've had the highest mountains, I've had the deepest rivers
G                                  Dm
You can have it all but life keeps moving
Am                            G
Now take it in but don't look down

(First Chorus)
                        F
Cause I'm on top of the world, ay
                  C
I'm on top of the world, ay
                      G
Waiting on this for a while now
                      Dm
Paying my dues to the dirt
                     F
I've been waiting to smile, ay
                         C
Been holding it in for a while, ay
                    G
Take you with me if I can
                              Dm
Been dreaming of this since a child
                  C    F    C
I'm on top of the world.


[Verse 2]

C                                F
I've tried to cut these corners, tried to take the easy way out
G                          Dm
I kept on falling short of something
C                            F
I could've gave up then but, then again I couldn't have cause
G                              Dm
I've traveled all this way for something
Am                            G
Now take it in but don't look down


[Chorus 2]

                        F
Cause I'm on top of the world, ay
                  C
I'm on top of the world, ay
                      G
Waiting on this for a while now
                      Dm
Paying my dues to the dirt
                     F
I've been waiting to smile, ay
                         C
Been holding it in for a while, ay
                    G
Take you with me if I can
                              Dm
Been dreaming of this since a child
                  C    F    C    G-
I'm on top of the world.

                        F
Cause I'm on top of the world, ay
                  C
I'm on top of the world, ay
                      G
Waiting on this for a while now
                      Dm
Paying my dues to the dirt
                     F
I've been waiting to smile, ay
                         C
Been holding it in for a while, ay
                    G
Take you with me if I can
                              Dm
Been dreaming of this since a child


[Bridge]

      F
And I know it's hard when you're falling down
           C
And it's a long way up when you hit the ground
       G                   Dm
So get up now, get up, get up now.
      F
And I know it's hard when you're falling down
           C
And it's a long way up when you hit the ground
       G                   Dm     G-
So get up now, get up, get up now.


[Chorus 3]

                        F
Cause I'm on top of the world, ay
                  C
I'm on top of the world, ay
                      G
Waiting on this for a while now
                      Dm
Paying my dues to the dirt
                     F
I've been waiting to smile, ay
                         C
Been holding it in for a while, ay
                    G
Take you with me if I can
                              Dm
Been dreaming of this since a child
                  C    F    C---
I'm on top of the world.

For the verses- down, down, down, down, then only on the top 3 strings down, up, down, up, down, up. So its 1 2 3 4 1+ 2+ 3+ then repeat.

The tag is just 1 slow down strum on each chord. (take it in but don't look down)

For the chorus- strike bottom 3 strings down, then 1 down strum on all, rest, only on the top 3 strings up, down, up. So its + 1 2(rest) 3+ 4 and repeat
