Bob Dylan's
Lyrics
Bob Dylan and Suze

Sittin' on Top of the World

1. Was in the summer,

One early fall,

Just tryin' to find my

Little all and all

Now she's gone,

An' I don't worry.

Lord, I'm sittin' on top of the world.

.

2. Was in the spring,

One summer's day.

Just when she left me,

She gone to stay.

Now she's gone.

An' I don't worry.

Lord, I'm sittin' on top of the world.

.

3. Now don't come runnin'

Holdin' up your hand.

Can get me a woman

Quick as you can get a man.

Now she's gone.

An' I don't worry.

Lord, I'm sittin' on top of the world.

.

4. Happen for days,

Didn't know your name.

Oh, why should I worry

Or crave you in vain?

Now she's gone.

An' I don't worry.

Lord, I'm sittin' on top of the world.

.

5. Went to the station,

Down in the yard,

Gonna get me a freight train,

Work's done got hard.

Now she's gone.

An' I don't worry.

Lord, I'm sittin' on top of the world.

.

6. The lonesome days,

They have gone by,

Why should I beg you?

You said good-bye.

Now she's gone.

An' I don't worry.

Lord, I'm sittin' on top of the world.

.
