Merle Haggard — High On A Hilltop lyrics

High on a hilltop overlooking the city
I can see the bright lights as they gleam
And somewhere you're dancing in some dingy bar room
And the lure of the gayness takes the place of our dream
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/merle-haggard-high-on-a-hilltop-lyrics.html ]
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

I can vision a rounder with a line so smooth
With a promise of riches for you
But you see not the danger 'cause 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
And give me the power to believe and some day
High on a hilltop together we'll pray
