On Top of Old Smokey Recorded by Eddy Arnold [3/4 time]
C On top of old Smokey all covered in snow
C I lost my true lover by courting too slow
C But courting’s pleasure but parting is grief
C For a false hearted lover is worse than a thief
C A thief he will just rob you take what you have
C But a false hearted lover will take you to your grave
C A grave will decay you turn you into dust
C And there just isn’t one girl a poor boy can trust
C So come all you lover’s and listen to me
C Don’t place your affection on a green willow tree
C The leave will all wither the roots will all die
C Then you’ll be forgotten but you’ll never know why Repeat #1
