Mississippi Sheiks – Sitting On Top Of The World lyrics

Was all the summer, and all the fall
Just tryin' to find my, little Lenore
But now she's gone, I don't worry
'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world

Was in the spring, one summer day
Just when she left me, she's gone to stay
But now she's gone, I don't worry
I'm sitting on top of the world

Then you come here runnin'
Holdin' up your hand
Can get me a woman
Quick as you can get a man
But now she's gone, I don't worry
I'm sitting on top of the world

(Instrumental)

It have been days
I didn't know your name
Why should I worry and prayer in vain?
But now she's gone, I don't worry
I'm sitting on top of the world

Goin' to the station, down in the yard
Gon' get me a freight train
Worked some, got hard
But now she's gone, I don't worry
I'm sitting on top of the world

The lonesome days, they have gone by
Why should you beg me and say goodbye?
But now she's gone, I don't worry
I'm sitting on top of the world
