  Bob Dylan's Garage Studio, Malibu, CA - late july -- early august 1992  

Was in the summer, one early fall
Just trying to find my baby all in all
Now she's gone, I don't worry, Lord I'm sittin' on top of the world

Was in the spring, one summer's day
That's when she left me, she gone to stay
Now she's gone, I don't worry, Lord I'm sittin' on top of the world

Now don't come runnin' holdin' up your hands
Can't get me a woman quick as you can get a man
Now she's gone and I don't worry, Lord I'm sittin' on top of the world

Had been for days, didn't know your name
Why should I worry, I'll crave you in vain
Now she's gone, I don't worry, Lord I'm sittin' on top of the world

Went to the station down in the yard
Got me a freight train when the goin' got hard
Now she's gone, I don't worry, Lord I'm sittin' on top of the world

The lonesome days they have gone by
Why should I beg you, you said goodbye
Now she's gone, I don't worry, Lord I'm sittin' on top of the world
