The Man on Top of the Mountain G,falsetto... or capo 9 E © Lightning Lucas 2015

HARP
G,D: When he was a little kid he said “I'm gonna climb that peak”
G,D: But when he was a little kid he couldn't make it yet his legs were too weak,
C,G: But he had a treasure, yes he had a treasure he was gonna seek
C,G: He could see the treasure x2, ... and he was no thief

G,D: And in his youth he said “I'm gonna scale that peak”
G,D: But in his youth he couldn't make it yet his lungs were weak,
C,G: But he had a treasure, still he had treasure he was gonna seek
C,G: He could see the treasure, almost feel the treasure underneath his feet...

G,D: The Man on Top of the Mountain did not fall there!! x2

G,D: And as a young adult, day by day without a fault he trained and trained,
G,D: And as a young adult, he proved he's worth his salt, he trained and trained,
C,G: He could see the treasure, he could feel the treasure in his mind's grasp,
C,G: He could see the treasure, he could feel the pressure every step and gasp.

G,D: The Man on Top of the Mountain did not fall there!! x2
HARP

G,D: So you have a goal in mind, are you going to such heights,
G,D: Take the road until it ends, then get out and set your sights,
C,G: You can see the treasure, You can taste the treasure but it will take time
C,G: If you want the treasure, You can have treasure but you'll have to climb!

G,D: The Man on Top of the Mountain did not fall there!! x4
