'Twas in the Spring one sunny day,
My sweetheart left me. Lord, she went away,
And now she's gone, and I don't worry,
A- Lord I'm sittin' on top of the world.

She called me up from down in El Paso
She said, "Come back daddy, I needs you so."
And now she's gone, and I don't worry,
A- Lord I'm sittin' on top of the world.

If 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, and I don't worry,
A- Lord I'm sittin' on top of the world.

And don't you come here running, holding out your hand
I'm gonna get me a woman, like you got your man.
And now she's gone, and I don't worry,
A- Lord I'm sittin' on top of the world.

'Twas in the Spring one sunny day,
My sweetheart left me. Lord, she went away,
And now she's gone, and I don't worry,
A- Lord I'm sittin' on top of the world.
