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.

Gone and left me, she's gone to stay
She's gone, 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

IMO some of Clapton's best playing the far away miking, tone and phrasing. Never mentioned but incomparable.

Yeah, this hits deep in a person's soul.

Gabe Morehouse

This. Room mic a cranked marshall in a concert hall and this is what you get.

I'm suddenly 13 again and hearing Cream for the first time...never, ever lost my love for their music. What a powerful feeling of nostalgia...at 65, I still totally dig these guys...life is always better with Cream!

Mark Teele Hey, Mark, is your other favorite Jimi?

ToddtheExploder

Louise F. You and me both, Louise! We lived through the apogee of modern musical creativity, and are extremely lucky to've done so.

I'm also 65 and starting with Fresh Cream I became and remain a Cream fanatic. This version of Sitting on top of the World can never be topped. My brain is try to keep up with Gingers insane drumming and Jack's growling bass playing, unreal, but then there's Eric, Holyshit! The way these three come together it's no exaggeration to say, one of my top two groups of all time.

Yup, 65 here too, I've loved Cream since they were new, I have all the LP's but just bought the box set "Those Were The Days" So I can play them in my car, nobody's ever topped them.
