    Ok, I'm really liking the song "Life by the Drop" by SRV. The only problem is that I can't figure out what the first line of the chorus is. I looked online and actually came up with 3 different versions from three different lyrics sites. Personally, I don't think any of them fit the song that well. Anybody have any clue?

    Here are the three variations I've found:

    "You're livin' a dream, wo you on top"

    "You're livin' out dreams of you on top"

    "You're livin our dream oh you on top"

    Hmm, thats a good question.

    I think it's, "You're livin our dreams, oh you on top."

    Of course, I could be wrong. I suggest trying to find another version of it somewhere on the internet and listening for yourself. The only version I've ever heard was an acoustic song and the vocals have a lot of reverb. I don't know if this is the studio version or not.
