Sitting on Top of the World

G

Twas in the spring, one sunny day

C G

My good gal left me, Lord she went away


G Em

But now she’s gone, and I don’t worry

G D G

‘Cause I’m sittin’ on top of the world


She called me up, from El Paso

Sayin’, come back Daddy, I need you so


Chorus


Don’t like my peaches, don’t shake my tree

Stay outta my orchard, let my peaches be


Chorus


Mississippi River, long, deep and wide

The woman I’m loving is on the other side


Chorus


Was in the summer, One early fall,

Just tryin’ to find my Little Gal and all


Chorus


Now don’t come runnin’ Holdin’ up your hand.

Can get me a woman Quick as you can get a man.


Chorus


Happen for days, Didn’t know your name.

Oh, why should I worry Or crave you in vain?.


Chorus


Went to the station, Down in the yard,

Gonna get me a freight train, Work’s done got hard.


Chorus


The lonesome days, They have gone by,

Why should I beg you? You said good-bye.


Chorus
