Bill Monroe – Sitting On Top Of The World lyrics

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
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
