King 2009 - Carolina Chocolate Drops As Recorded By MISSISSIPPI SHEIKS: Worked all the summer, and all the fall, Just trying to find my little all in all. But now she's gone, I don't worry, 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, I don't worry, I'm sitting on top of the world. Don't you come here runnin', holdin' up your hand, Can't get me a woman, quick as you get a man. But now she's gone, I don't worry, I'm sitting on top of the world. It have been days, I didn't know your name, Why should I worry and pray in vain. But now she's gone, I don't worry, I'm sitting on top of the world. Went to the station, down in the yard, Gonna get me a freight train, work done got hard. But now she's gone, I don't worry, I'm sitting on top of the world. The lonesome days, they have gone by, Why should you beg me and say goodbye. But now she's gone, I don't worry, I'm sitting on top of the world. As recorded by JERRY REED: Well it was in the Spring one sunny day When my baby left me and she went away Oh, but now she's gone and I don't worry 'Cause I'm sittin' up here on top of the world Yeah, jump in there children Mississippi River is deep and wide That woman I love, love is on the other side Oh, but now she's gone, gone, I don't worry none 'Cause I'm sittin', sittin' on top of the world Yeah, get it cookin' Mississippi River is deep and wide That woman I love, love is on the other side Oh, but now she's gone, gone, gone and I don't worry none 'Cause I'm sittin', sittin' on top of the world Jump in there, boy (Guitar Solo) Swarm, boys, swarm! Well it was in the Spring, Lord, one sunny day When my woman left me and, Lord, she went away Oh, but now she's gone and I don't worry Because I'm sittin' up here on top of the world (Instrumental Break) I'm sittin' on top of the world Sittin' on top of the world I don't worry, I don't worry Sittin' up here on top of the world On top of the world right now, woh yeah As Recorded By HOWLIN' WOLF: One summer day, she went away, She gone and left me, she gone to stay. But now she gone, and I don't worry. 'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world. Worked all the summer, and worked all the fall, I had to take my Christmas, in my overall. But now she gone, and I don't worry, Because I'm sitting on top of the world. Goin' down to the freight yard, just to meet a freight train, I'm gonna leave this town, well it's just got too hard. But now she gone, and I don't worry, Because I'm sitting on top of the world. One summer day, she went away, She gone and left me, she gone to stay. But now she gone, and I don't worry, 'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world. (Contributed by Mel Priddle - November 2012 Updated - July 2014 =Ae=)
