lyrics

Sitting On Top Of The World - Traditional

Was in the spring one sunny day,
My good gal left me, she went away,
And now she's gone but I don't worry,
'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world.

She called me up, down in El Paso,
Said come back daddy, I need you so
But now she's gone, and I don't worry,
'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world.

Mississippi river, long deep and wide,
The woman I'm loving, is on the other side,
And now she's gone, but I don't worry,
'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world.

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust,
Show me a woman, a man can trust,
And now she's gone, but I don't worry,
'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world.

You don't like my peaches, don't shake my tree,
Get outta my orchard, let my peaches be,
And now she's gone, but I don't worry,
'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world.

Don't you come running, holding out your hand,
I get me a woman, like you got your man,
And now she's gone, but I don't worry,
'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world.

Went to the station, down in the yard,
Gonna get me a freight train, worked and got to home,
And now she's gone, but I don't worry,
'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world.

Those lonesome days, they have gone by,
Why should you beg me, oh say goodbye,
And now she's gone, but I don't worry,
'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world.
