Sitting on Top of the World
Cream Lyrics


One summer day, she went away;
Gone and left me, she's gone to stay.
She's gone, but I don't worry:
I'm sitting on top of the world.

All the summer, worked all this fall.
Had to take Christmas in my overalls.
She's gone, but I don't worry:
I'm sitting on top of the world.
Going down to the freight yard, gonna catch me a freight train.
Going to leave this town; worked and got to home.
She's gone, but I don't worry:
I'm sitting on top of the world.

She's gone, but I don't worry
I'm sitting on top of the world
Going down to the freight yard
Gonna catch me a freight train
Going to leave this town
Worked and got to home
She's gone, but I don't worry
I'm sitting on top of the world

Lyric on third line of last verse is "Work done got too hard".

Knuteboy37

I believe this is my all-time favorite Clapton recorded solo. It just dips and soars so beautifully and the tone is awesome. Gives me goosebumps every time.

Brer Wolf

YES!!

chaz wittman

Another gem I think is "catch me if you can"

Renfro Picken

@Bob Who? Cooke? Dam right.

Laurence Cooper

the tone yes brilliant he used to call it woman tone:)

Bob

Yes, tone is unbelievable. So is Jack's.

Ten Minute Drum Solo

Jack Bruce had an absolutely magnificent(!) voice. I was 16 when they first landed and I played Fresh Cream until it was worn paper thin. Cream are the inspiration for my username, one day a friend ran up to me and said very excitedly, "Oh man you gotta hear this Cream album, Ginger Baker does a TEN MINUTE DRUM SOLO!" Of course it wasn't really ten minutes, it was Toad and it was actually five minutes, but it seemed longer because until then radio songs were only 2 minutes 30 seconds long.

John Lancaster

his bass playing was pretty good too.
