Very long listed one that I couldn't  bring the whole bunch on up
Sitting On Top of the World
Was all the summer, and all the fall,
Just trying to find my little all in all
But now she's gone, and I don't worry
Lord, 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, and I don't worry
Oh, I'm sitting on top of the world

An' you come runnin', holdin' up your hand
Can't get me a woman, cranky you can get a man
But now you're gone, and now I don't worry
Lord I'm sitting on top of the world

Have been days, I didn't know your name
Why should I worry or cry in vain
But now she's gone, now I don't worry
Lord, I'm sitting on top of the world

Went to the station, down in the yard
Gonna get me a freight train, worked and got to home
But now she's gone, and I don't worry
Oh, I'm sitting on top of the world

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