Sittin’ On Top Of The World

Sittin’ On Top Of The World – Missisippi Sheiks

Original:

The Sheiks plays in Gb, but here it’s rendered i G, but you can easily put a capo on 2nd fret and play E-shape:

 

[G]Was all the summer, and all the [G7]fall,

Just trying to [C]find my little all in [G]all

But now she’s gone, I don’t [Em]worry

I’m [G]sitting on [D]top of the [G]world

 

[G]Was in the spring, one sunny [G7]day

My good gal [C]left me, she’s gone to [G]stay

But now she’s gone, I don’t [Em]worry

Cause I’m [G]sitting on [D]top of the [G]world

 

An’ you come here runnin’, holdin’ up your hand

Can’t get me a woman, who can just kill a man

But now she’s gone, I don’t worry

I’m sitting on top of the world

 

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

Gone 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
