...BACK ON TOP... by Van Morrison
-----------------................

*from 'Back on Top' (1999)*


Intro:

Em  C (x3)
Am7  Bm7  Cmaj7 (x2)
Am7  Bm7  G

Verse 1:

Em                           C
 You came to see me when the moon was new.
Em                       C
 Saw you standin' in the pouring rain.
Em                      C
 Left my message on the window pain;

Am7          Bm7      Cmaj7
 Back on the street a-gain,
Am7          Bm7    Cmaj7
 Back on the beat a-gain,
       Am7         Bm7    G
I'm... back on the top, a-gain.

Verse 2:

Em                      C
 Saw me climbing to the top of the hill,
Em                           C
 You saw me meeting with the fools on the hill.
Em                        C
 Learned my lesson, and I had my fill.

Am7        Bm7    Cmaj7
 Learnt it all in vain,
Am7              Bm7   Cmaj7
 Went through it all a-gain.
        Am7         Bm7    G
Now I'm back on the top, a-gain.

Bridge 1:

D                                        C
 Always strivin', always climbing way be-yond my will.
D                                     C
 Same old sensation; isolation at the top of the bill.
D                                        C
 Always seeming like I'm moving, but I'm really going slow.
D                                                    C
 What do you do, when you get to the top and there's nowhere to go?

Verse 4:

Em                            C
 Just how I get there will be anybody's guess,
Em                                C
 With all the so called trappings of success.
Em                             C
 Left all the deadbeats on the top of the hill.

Am7       Bm7     Cmaj7
 Too busy raisin' Cain,
    Am7         Bm7      Cmaj7
I'm back on the street a-gain.
       Am7         Bm7    G
I'm... back on the top, a-gain.

Solo:

Em  C (x3)
Am7  Bm7  Cmaj7 (x2)
Am7  Bm7  G

Bridge 2:

D                                        C
 Always strivin', always climbing way be-yond my will.
D                                     C
 Same old sensation; isolation at the top of the bill.
D                                        C
 Always seeming like I'm moving, but I'm really going slow.
D                                                    C
 What do you do, when you get to the top and there's nowhere to go?

Verse 5:

Em                            C
 Just how I get there will be anybody's guess,
Em                                C
 With all the so called trappings of success.
Em                             C
 Left all the deadbeats on the top of the hill.

Am7       Bm7     Cmaj7
 Too busy raisin' Cain,
    Am7         Bm7      Cmaj7
I'm back on the street a-gain.
       Am7         Bm7    G
I'm... back on the top, a-gain.

Interlude:

Em  C (x3)

Coda:

Am7          Bm7      Cmaj7
 Back on the street a-gain,
Am7          Bm7    Cmaj7
 Back on the beat a-gain.
       Am7         Bm7    G
I'm... back on the top, a-gain.
