Sittin' on Top of the World

Trad.
Released by Bob Dylan on Good As I Been To You (1992)
Tabbed by Eyolf Østrem

It seems that the B is played with an open E string: x24400, but the full B chord x24442 is fine too; you don't really need those high strings anyway, since mostly the song is played only on the bass strings.

The E4 chord (E on the fourth fret) = xxx454. Could be played on the seventh fret as well (079990)

Standard blues accompaniment:

Was in the summer,

One early fall,
               A
Just tryin' to find my
               E
Little all and all
          E4
Now she's gone,
            B
An' I don't worry.
          A                     E
Lord, I'm sittin' on top of the world.

[this is the model also for the remaining interludes]
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
