Sittin’ on top of the world

Sittin’ on top of the world (Walter Vinson)


Was all the summer, and all the fall,
Just trying to find my little all in all
But now she’s gone, and I don’t worry 
Lord I’m sitting on top of the world 

Was in the spring, one summer day
Just when she left me, she’s gone to stay

An’ you come runnin’, holdin’ up your hand
Can’t get me a woman, quick as you can get a man

Have been days, I didn’t know your name
Why should I worry or cry in vain

Went to the station, down in the yard
Gone get me a freight train, worked on your hard

The lonesome days, they have gone by
Why should you beg me oh say goodbye
