One summer day, she went away
She's gone off and left me, Now she gone to stay
My Baby's gone but I can't worry about that, now
Cuz' I'm sittin' on top of the world

Worked all the summer, yeah, and I worked all the fall
Had to take Christmas, wearing my ole' dirty overalls
But now she gone and I ain't gonna worry now
Cuz I'm Sittin' on top of the world

I'm going down to the freight yard, y'all
Gonna catch me a frieght train
Lord, I'm goin' to leave this town
Cuz' Things, things have got too hard
But now she gone and I don't worry about that
Cuz' I'm Sittin' on top of the world
