It was in the spring one sunny day

My good girl left me, lord, she went away

And now she's gone and I don't worry

'Cause I'm sitting on top of the world

She called me up from down in El paso

Said come back, daddy, lord I need you so

* Refrain

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

Show me a woman a man can trust

* Refrain

Mississippi River, long, deep and wide

The woman I'm loving is on the other side

* Refrain

You don't like my oeaches, don't you shake my tree

Get out of my orchard, let my peaches be

* Refrain

Don't you come here running, porking out your hand

I'll get me a woman like you got your man

* Refrain
