...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
 You came to see me,
         C
When the moon was new,
Em
 Saw you standin',
       C
In the pouring rain,
Em
 Left my message,
       C
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
 Saw me climbing to,
    C
The top of the hill,
Em
 You saw me meeting with,
    C
The fools on the hill.
Em
 Learned my lesson,
      C
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
 Always strivin', always climbing,
       C
Way be-yond my will.
D
 Same old sensation;
                 C
Isolation at the top of the bill.

D
 Always seeming, like I'm moving,
        C
But I'm really going slow.
D
 What do you do,
When you get to the top
            C
And there's nowhere to go?

Verse 4:

Em
 Just how I get there,
        C
Will be anybody's guess,
Em
 With all the so called,
          C
Trappings of success.
Em
 Left all the deadbeats,
       C
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.

Sax Solo:

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

Bridge 2:

D
 Always strivin', always climbing,
       C
Way be-yond my will.
D
 Same old sensation;
                 C
Isolation at the top of the bill.

D
 Always seeming, like I'm moving,
        C
But I'm really going slow.
D
 What do you do,
When you get to the top
            C
And there's nowhere to go?

Verse 5:

Em
 Just how I get there,
        C
Will be anybody's guess,
Em
 With all the so called,
          C
Trappings of success.
Em
 Left all the deadbeats,
       C
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.

 Back on the street a-gain,

    Am7         Bm7   G
I'm back on the top a-gain.
