Randy Newman
Lonely at the top (1972)
(Newman)
From: "Sail Away"

Here's my try at a guitar version. Such a great song to sing! Makes me feel 
good I didn't make it to the top after all. Seems to be a horrible place ...

SONG and arrangement

[Intro]

[Verse]
I've been around the world
Had my pick of any girl
You'd think I'd be happy
But I'm not

[Chorus]
Ev'rybody knows my name
But it's just a crazy game
Oh, it's lonely at the top

[Intro]

[Middle 8]
Listen to the band, they're playing just for me
Listen to the people paying just for me

[Chorus]
All the applause 'n'all the parades
And all the money I have made
Oh, it's lonely at the top 

[Link to solo]

[Solo]

[Chorus]
Listen all you fools out there
Go on and love me, I don't care
Oh, it's lonely at the top

[Outro]
       Oh, it's lonely at the top
