Played frequently by the Grateful Dead in their earliest days, but then more rarely until the final performances on their European tour in 1972. These are the lyrics as on their first album.

Lyrics

Mississippi river, so big and wide
Blonde-headed woman on the other side
Now she's gone, gone, gone and I don't worry
'Cause I'm sittin' on top of the world

I worked all summer, spring and fall
Blonde-headed woman, she's the cause of it all
Now she's gone, gone, gone and I don't worry
'Cause I'm sittin' on top of the world

Saw her in Dallas, in El Paso
So come back baby, I need you so
Now she's gone, gone, gone and I don't worry
'Cause I'm sittin' on top of the world

Mississippi river, so big and wide
Blonde-headed woman on the other side
Now she's gone, gone, gone and I don't worry
'Cause I'm sittin' on top of the world

  • Sittin' On Top Of The World

    Mississippi river, so big and wide
    Blonde-headed woman on the other side
    Now she's gone, gone, gone and I don't worry
    'Cause I'm sittin' on top of the world

    I worked all summer, spring and fall
    Blonde-headed woman, she's the cause of it all
    Now she's gone, gone, gone and I don't worry
    'Cause I'm sittin' on top of the world

    Saw her in Dallas, in El Paso
    So come back baby, I need you so
    Now she's gone, gone, gone and I don't worry
    'Cause I'm sittin' on top of the world

    Mississippi river, so big and wide
    Blonde-headed woman on the other side
    Now she's gone, gone, gone and I don't worry
    'Cause I'm sittin' on top of the world
