One summer day
She went away
She gone an left me
She gone to stay

But now she gone
An' I don't worry
'Cause I'm sittin' on top of the world
Works all the summer

And worked all the fall
I had to take my Christmas
In my over-halls* 
But now she's gone

An' I don't worry
Because I'm sittin' on top of the world
 
Goin' down to the freight yard 
Just to meet a freight train
I'm gon' leave this town
Work has done gotten too hard

But now she's gone
And I don't worry
Because I'm sittin' on top of the world
One summer day

She went away
She gone an left me
She gone to stay
But now she gone

And I don't worry
Because I'm sittin' on top of the world
