Sittin’ On Top Of The World

It was [G]in the spring one sunny day

My [C]good gal left me Lord she went [G]away

And now she’s gone but I don’t [Em]worry

‘Cause I’m [C]sitting on [D7]top of the [G]world


She called me up from down in El paso

Said come back, daddy, Lord I need you so


Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

Show me a woman a man can trust


Mississippi River, long, deep and wide

The woman I’m loving is on the other side


You don’t like my peaches, don’t you shake my tree

Get out of my orchard, let my peaches be


Don’t you come here running, holding out your hand

I’ll get me a woman like you got your man
