Van Morrison Feat. Carl PerkinsSitting On Top of the World

You come here running
Holding out your hand
I'm gonna get me a woman, baby
And you can have that man

Lord, I'm gone, gone, gone
I don't worry
Lord, I am sitting on top of the world
Yes, I am
How you think about it, Van?

I worked all summer and all the fall
I even spent Christmas in my overalls
But now, child's gone, yeah, she is
And I don't worry, boy, don't worry
'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world
Lord, I reckon

That Mississippi River
So deep and wide
My baby's standing, Lord
On the other side

Oh, but now she's gone, gone, gone
And I don't worry
'Cause I am sitting on top of this world
Can you blow me some of that horn, cat now?

One summer day
She went away
She went and left me
For good to stay

And now she's gone
And I don't worry
'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world, yeah

You come here running
Holding out your hand
I'm gonna get me a woman
And you can have your man

Well, though she's gone, gone, gone
And I don't worry
'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world
