Buck Owens — High On A Hilltop lyrics

High on a hilltop overlooking a city
I watched the bright lights as they gleam
For somewhere you're dancing in some dingy bar room
And the lure of the g** life takes the place of our dream

High on a hilltop my heart cries, Oh Lord
Forgive her she knows not the way
And give me the power to believe and some day
High on a hilltop together we'll pray

--- Instrumental ---

I can vision a rounder with a line so smooth
With a promise of riches for you
But you see not the danger for you're silly with booze
And from high on a hilltop I see the devil in you

High on a hilltop my heart cries, Oh Lord
Forgive her she knows not the way
Just give me the power to believe and some day
High on a hilltop together we'll pray...
