Sittin' on Top of the World

Sittin' on Top of the World
(Lonnie Carter and Walter Jacobs)

It was in the spring, one sunny day
My sweetheart left me, Lord, she went away

cho: And now she's gone, and I don't worry
Oh Lord, I'm sittin' on top of the world.

She called me up from El Paso
Sayin', "Come back Daddy, I need you so."

Don't like my peaches, don't shake my tree
Stay outa my orchard, leave my peaches be.

Don't you come here runnin', holdin' out your han'
Gonna get me a woman, like you got your man.

Recorded by Doc Watson, Bill Monroe
