SITTING ON TOP OF THE WORLD
WRITERS LONNIE CHATMAN, WALTER VINSON

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
