On Top of Old Smokey

Song Author Eddy Arnold Lyrics by: Eddy Arnold Performer: Eddy Arnold Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]On top of old [F]Smokey all covered in [C]snow
I lost my true [G7]lover by courting too [C]slow
But courting’s [F]pleasure but parting is [C]grief
For a false hearted [G7]lover is worse than a [C]thief

A thief he will just [F]rob you take what you [C]have
But a false hearted [G7]lover will take you to your [C]grave
A grave will [F]decay you turn you into [C]dust
And there just isn’t [G7]one girl a poor boy can [C]trust

So come all you [F]lover’s and listen to [C]me  
Don’t place your [G7]affection on a green willow [C]tree
The leave will all [F]wither the roots will all [C]die  
Then you’ll be for[G7]gotten but you’ll never know [C]why  

[C]On top of old [F]Smokey all covered in [C]snow
I lost my true [G7]lover by courting too [C]slow
But courting’s [F]pleasure but parting is [C]grief
For a false hearted [G7]lover is worse than a [C]thief

On top of old Smokey all covered in snow
I lost my true lover by courting too slow
But courting’s pleasure but parting is grief
For a false hearted lover is worse than a thief

A thief he will just rob you take what you have
But a false hearted lover will take you to your grave
A grave will decay you turn you into dust
And there just isn’t one girl a poor boy can trust

So come all you lover’s and listen to me
Don’t place your affection on a green willow tree
The leave will all wither the roots will all die
Then you’ll be forgotten but you’ll never know why

On top of old Smokey all covered in snow
I lost my true lover by courting too slow
But courting’s pleasure but parting is grief
For a false hearted lover is worse than a thief
