remember keys
C       
If you love somebody
F
Better tell them while they’re here ’cause
C                                  F
They may just run away from you


C
You’ll never know what went well
F
Then again it just depends on
C                               F
How long of time is left for you


C
I’ve had the highest mountains
F
I’ve had the deepest rivers
C                                       F
You can have it all but not til you prove it


C                                 G
Now take it in but don’t look down


                              F
‘Cause I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
                      C
I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
                        G
Waiting on this for a while now
                         Dm
Paying my dues to the dirt
                        F
I’ve been waiting to smile, ‘ay
                            C
Been holding it in for a while, ‘ay
                         G
Take it with me if I can
                                 Dm
Been dreaming of this since a child
                    C
I’m on top of the world.


C
I’ve tried to cut these corners
F
Try to take the easy way out
C                             F
I kept on falling short of something


C
I coulda gave up then but
F
Then again I couldn’t have ’cause
C                               F
I’ve traveled all this way for something


C                               G
Now take it in but don’t look down

                        
                              F
‘Cause I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
                      C
I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
                        G
Waiting on this for a while now
                         Dm
Paying my dues to the dirt
                        F
I’ve been waiting to smile, ‘ay
                            C
Been holding it in for a while, ‘ay
                         G
Take it with me if I can
                                 Dm
Been dreaming of this since a child
                    C
I’m on top of the world.


                              F
‘Cause I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
                      C
I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
                        G
Waiting on this for a while now
                         Dm
Paying my dues to the dirt
                        F
I’ve been waiting to smile, ‘ay
                            C
Been holding it in for a while, ‘ay
                         G
Take it with me if I can
                                 Dm
Been dreaming of this since a child


        F                               
And I know it’s hard when you’re falling down
C
And it’s a long way up when you hit the ground
G                       Dm
Get up now, get up, get up now.

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
