Sitting On Top Of The World

Lonesome River Band

 

                      G                         G7          

'Twas in the spring one sunny day

                        C                                 G

My good girl left me, lord, she went away

 

                                     G                       Em

And now she's gone and I don't worry

                    G            D               G

'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, stickin' out your hand

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