Capo 1st fret

G
 I'm on my way from misery to happiness today
D
 I'm on my way from misery to happiness today
G                 C
 I'm on my way to what I want from this world
G                          C
 And years from now you'll make it to the next world
G                    C
 And everything that you receive up yonder
G                    D
 Is what you gave to me the day I wandered

G
 I took a right, I took a right turning yesterday
D
 I took a right, I took a right turning yesterday
G                     C
 I took the road that brought me to your home town
G                  C
 I took the bus to streets that I could walk down
G                        C
 I walked the streets to find the one I'd looked for
G                         D
 I climbed the stair that led me to your front door

C             D                G        G7
 And now that I don't want for anything
C            D                G                     D
 I'd have Al Jolson sing "I'm sitting on top of the world"

G
 I'll do my best, I'll do my best to do the best I can
D
 I'll do my best, I'll do my best to do the best I can
G                     C
 To keep my feet from jumping from the ground dear
G                      C
 To keep my heart from jumping through my mouth dear
G                      C
 To keep the past, the past and not the present
G                      D
 To try and learn when you teach me a lesson

C             D                G        G7
 And now that I don't want for anything
C            D                G                     D
 I'd have Al Jolson sing "I'm sitting on top of the world"

G
 I'm on my way from misery to happiness today
D
 I'm on my way from misery to happiness today
G                 C
 I'm on my way to what I want from this world
G                          C
 And years from now you'll make it to the next world
G                    C
 And everything that you receive up yonder
G                    C
 Is what you gave to me the day I wandered
G                 C
 I'm on my way to what I want from this world
G                          C
 And years from now you'll make it to the next world
G                    C
 And everything that you receive up yonder
G                    D
 Is what you gave to me the day I wandered

G
 I'm on my way (repeat and fade)
