"Sitting on Top of the World" as written by and Walter Jacobs Vinson....
Was in the summer
One early fall
Just tryin' to find my
Little all and all
Now she's gone
An' I don't worry
Lord, I'm sittin' on top of the world

Was in the spring
One summer's day
Just when she left me
She gone to stay
Now she's gone
I don't worry
Lord, I'm sittin' on top of the world

Now don't come runnin'
Holdin' up your hand
Can't get me a woman
Quick as you can get a man
Now she's gone
An' I don't worry
Lord, I'm sittin' on top of the world

Happen for days
Didn't know your name
Oh, why should I worry?
Or crave you in vain?
Now she's gone
I don't worry
Lord, I'm sittin' on top of the world

Went to the station
Down in the yard
Gonna catch me a freight train
Work's done got hard
Now she's gone
An' I don't worry
Lord, I'm sittin' on top of the world

The lonesome days
They have gone by
Why should I beg you?
You said good-bye
Now she's gone
I don't worry
Lord, I'm sittin' on top of the world
