Cream - Sitting On Top Of The World 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 sittin' on top of the world

All the summer, worked on this farm
Had to take Christmas in my overalls
She's gone, but I don't worry
I'm sittin' on top of the world

Going down to the freight yard
Gonna catch me a freight train
Gonna leave this town
Work done got too hard
She's gone, but I don't worry
I'm sittin' on top of the world

[Goodbye Cream:]

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

All last summer, worked on this farm
Had to take Christmas in my overalls
She's gone, gone, but I don't worry, no
Cause I'm sittin', sittin' on top of the world

Going down to the freight yard, yeh, yeh, yeh
Gonna catch me a freight train
Gonna leave this town, yeh, yeh, yeh
Work done got too hard
She's gone, but I don't worry
Cause I'm sittin', I'm sittin'on top of the world

Cream Sitting On Top Of The World Comments
  1. mojojtp

    C’mon, under 100K views, what’s wrong here? Blues, vocals, bass, drums and “gods” guitar...you all still have much to learn...

  2. ChewbaccaFetus

    If anyone could point me in the right direction on finding how to achieve that glorious, crunchy guitar tone on the lead in this song that would be sooo awesome :D

    The Unlucky Logan

    SG Standard with some removed binding there is also a picture of Eric using a fender amp while recording this song

  3. Trev0r98

    why was this such a holllow-sounding, crappy recording? Lousy production. This seemed to be the norm around 1968. Same with Jimi Hendrix' records... all very empty, "rinsed-out" kinda empty sound (even tho Jimi was a complete & total genius).

    Paul R.

    Hey this was over fifty years ago! You sound like you're young and stupid.

  4. us and them

    I take my coffee black, but always take Cream in my ears!

  5. Joe Jach

    Kiss my [email protected] good

  6. Alexandros Papadopoulos

    one of the most badass rock/blues songs ever

  7. Henry Frost

    Brilliant out of this world band

  8. if6was929

    "Sitting on top of the world", old time heroin users used to say it when describing how they feel after getting off.

    Mike Koenig

    Getting off as in getting high? Or getting off as in getting sober? Thats super interesting

  9. Kyle Cline

    3:31 - 3:36 on repeat
    Dirty

  10. teriakamoto

  22. Alex Wajnerman

    RIP GInger ...

  23. Dwayne Wladyka

    A great version of a Howlin' Wolf tune. This is a great album. Cheers!

  24. C Synch

    Cream kept the heart of rock n roll close to the blues during those psychedelic years. Rock owes them, Taj Mahal and Paul Butterfield a tremendous thanks for being the standard bearers of blues then, Allman's took that torch.

  25. ldognz

    The anthem of my life

  26. jr 55

    Cover of the 1930s song by the Mississippi Sheiks.

  27. rod morris

    1968 was a magical time and this wonderful album takes me right there

  28. ldognz

    my life is in this album

  29. Bob

    Best song in the world!

  30. jernt dood

    cant imitate jack

  31. László Levente Kis

    One summer day she went away
    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

  32. Paul R.

    This just gives my goose bumps! Suddenly it's 1968 again and I just sit there with my mouth open! What a band!

  33. AlienAir

    Thank my cousin Dave Armstrong for spoon-feeding me this album at age 14. I had to eat the whole record and still havent digested it all up to 46

  34. guitarguy382

    That chugging rhythm guitar at the beginning...........words fail me.

    MrTeamTactical

    one of my favourite song intro's, along with Punk and the Godfather by the who!

  35. Nick Hernandez

    wow the guitar riff at the top of the song brings me to the top of the world

  36. Louise F.

    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!

    Paul R.

    You and me both!

    Bob

    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.

    ldognz

    me too mate:):)

    Mark Teele

    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.

  37. Mike Ervin

    Wheels of fire was the epitome of rock period!

  38. Rob Martin

    Gibson HB guitar. Marshall amp. Wah pinned somewhere. Heavy deep Reverb. And You'll be close IMO.

    Mike Helbert

    Make sure that the Marshall volume is on 11.

    Zane McGahee

    This sounds more like a dimed champ to me

    Colin Mcnab

    No wah used to get this tone. Check out the 68 Albert Hall farewell concert when Clapton demonstrates his tone on the Fool SG. He kicks the wah on to play a wah wah bit then kicks it off for his normal and woman tone. When a wah is in the off position it does not have any effect on the tone at all.

  39. jernt dood

    its like jacks 'pop-perfection' vox on top of the blues madness music, the contrast was so great

  40. Rob Butler Guitar

    Love this album

  41. dominic heslop

    This is one of those Clapton tones I just can’t reproduce

    Carole Donald

    This was our parrots favourite track and she used to whistle along with Eric!

    dogguitarbluesman

    the reverb on 10 masks some things but it's strange brew tone with a shitload of reverb. Reverb can drastically change the percipienced tone.

  42. Royce Lowe

    Wow, no kudos for Cream, on this the 50th anniversary of this album? This is great stuff.

    Paul R.

    You got that right!
