"Sitting on Top of the World" as written by and Walter Jacobs 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
