Lyrics:

G7
One summer day, she went away
C7
Gone and left me, she's gone to stay


Chorus:
	       G7                D7
	She's gone but I don't worry

	I'm sittin on top of the world

	G7 C7 G7 D7

All the summer worked all this fall
had to take christmas in my overalls

Chorus

Solo

Goin down to the graveyard gonna catch me a freight train
gonna leave this town work done got too hard

Chorus

G#7 G7

The background in the intro's more like

|----------------------------|
|-----------10-10-10--9-10---|
|------------9--9--9--8--9---|
|------------8--8--8--7--8---|
|-----8-10---9--9--9--8--9---|

|---------------4-4-4-3-4---4-4-4-3-4---4----------|
