Sitting On Top of the World
Howlin' Wolf Lyrics

One summer day
She went away
She gone and left me
She gone to stay
But now she gone
And I can't worry
Because I'm sittin' on top of the world

Worked all the summer
Worked all the fall
Had to take my Christmas
In my overalls
But now she's gone
And I don't worry
Sittin' on top of the

Goin' down to the freight yard
Catch me a freight train
I'm gon' leave this town
Work done got hard
But now she gone
And I don't worry
Sittin' on top of the world

The Wolf was a monster bluesman --- his music will never die

Robert Niemi

You got that right.


you know when you forget a song exists until you see the title again and then you remember how awesome that song is? that's me right now

Shane Felkel

Such a great club feel to this song. Dont think it is live, but the drums really resonate and the whole vibe seems imperative and immediate.

Conor Kennedy

I feel like that drum kit is in my living room

Conor Kennedy

the drums are wild on this. it's really well recorded.


I became a Howlin Wolf Fan in Fall of 1993. Highway 49 got me hooked!

David Stowell

This man Chester Burnett created an entire world with his music. Today I went down to the freightyards at 39th and Halsted in Chicago just because I woke up this morning with this song on my mind. "Gonna leave this town
Work done got hard."

Diego Andrés
