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 But now she's gone, and I don't worry Oh I'm sitting on top of the world An' you come runnin', holdin' up your hand Can't get me a woman, cranky you can get a man But now you're gone, and now I don't worry Lord I'm sitting on top of the world Have been days, I didn't know your name Why should I worry or cry in vain But now she's gone, now I don't worry Lord 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 But now she's gone, and I don't worry Oh I'm sitting on top of the world The lonesome days, they have gone by Why should you beg me oh say goodbye But now she's gone, and I don't worry Oh cause I'm sitting on top of the world ***** Version as recorded by: Bill Monroe It was in the spring one sunny day My good gal left me Lord 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 from down in El Paso Said come back, daddy, Lord I need you so 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 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 You don't like my peaches, don't you shake my tree Get out of 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 here running, holding out your hand I'll 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 ***** Version as recorded by Eric Clapton: One summer day, she went away; Gone and left me, she's gone to stay. She's gone, but I don't worry: I'm sitting on top of the world. All the summer, worked all this fall. Had to take Christmas in my overalls. She's gone, but I don't worry: I'm sitting on top of the world. Going down to the freight yard, gonna catch me a freight train. Going to leave this town; worked and got to home. She's gone, but I don't worry: I'm sitting on top of the world. ***** Version as recorded by The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band: Now she's gone and I don't worry Lord, I'm a-sittin' on top of the World Was in the Spring, one sunny day My good girl left me, she went away Now she's gone and I don't worry Lord, I'm a-sittin' on top of the World She called me from Dallas and El Paso Said come back, Daddy, I need you so Now she's gone and I don't worry Lord, I'm a-sittin' on top of the World Well, my pal, he done me wrong He stole my Darlin' with his ol' dobro Now she's gone and I don't worry Lord, I'm a-sittin' on top of the World Don't like my peaches, don't shake my tree Stay out o' my orchard, let my peaches be Now she's gone and I don't worry Lord, I'm a-sittin' on top of the World Don't come here runnin', holdin' out your hand I can't get a woman, like you got a man Now she's gone and I don't worry Lord, I'm a-sittin' on top of the World Now she's gone and I don't worry Lord, I'm a-sittin' on top of the World (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2004) ***** Version as recorded by Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee: No need 'a runnin', holdin' up your hand, I can get me a woman, quick as you can a man, But now she's gone, and I don't worry, 'Cause I'm sittin' on top of the world. I'm on top of the world, with my leg hanging down, My baby done quit me, gone out 'a this town. But now she's gone, and I don't worry, 'Cause I'm sittin' on top of the world. Work all the summer and all the fall, Now, they wanna take my Christmas, and my overalls. But now she's gone, and I don't worry, 'Cause I'm sittin' on top of the world. Bye, bye, baby, honey if you call it gone, It may worry me some, baby, but it won't last long. But now she's gone, and I don't worry, 'Cause I'm sittin' on top of the world.
