The Carpenters - Top of the world


Seemed like the other tabs were way off so I'm help'n out here.
Its not really a guitar tune but these are the chords & it sounds pretty good.

"A" is the correct key.

standard tune

A               E      D    A
Such a feelin's comin' over me
         C#m            Bm           A    A7
There is wonder in most everything I see
      D            E
Not a cloud in the sky
        C#m       F#m
Got the sun in my eyes
      Bm          Dm               E      E7
And I won't be surprised if it's a dream

A            E        D        A
Everything I want the world to be
       C#m           Bm           A     A7
Is now coming true especially for me
        D         E
And the reason is clear
       C#m           F#m
It's because you are here
           Bm               Dm               E      Esus4
You're the nearest thing to heaven that I've seen

           A                        D
I'm on the top of the world lookin' down on creation
        A         Bm           A       A7
And the only explanation I can find
       D              E          A                  D
Is the love that I've found ever since you've been around
            A             E          A
Your love's put me at the top of the world

A                E        D          A
Something in the wind has learned my name
         C#m             Bm                 A      A7
And it's tellin' me that things are not the same
       D             E
In the leaves on the trees
        C#m          F#m
And the touch of the breeze
          Bm                Dm            E     E7
There's a pleasin' sense of happiness for me

A             E        D     A
There is only one wish on my mind
          C#m              Bm               A     A7
When this day is through I hope that I will find
       D           E
That tomorrow will be
         C#m              F#m
Just the same for you and me
      Bm           Dm              E      Esus4
All I need will be mine if you are here

Repeat Chorus

theres some detials I can't do here but:

1) the intro is similar to chorus
2) in the verses 2nd bm's lift middle finger on/off to make Bsus2
3) on the dm's lift ring finger on/off to make dm6
4) Esus4 seems to make more sence then E7 right before chorus
5) & some of the bm's are bm7's & same for some of the f#m's ?

This is my 1st tab, hope you liked...need more? send requests to realcygnus@live.com & 
see what I can do.

great song Enjoy !
