On top of old smoky

(Little Mohee) Gl.Kentucky sang
Jeg har altid holdt meget af folkesange fra hele verden, og denne melodi er så enkel i sin opbygning, at man hurtigt kan nynne med på den, hvis man ikke kender den i forvejen.

ON TOP OF OLD SMOKEY

On top of old Smoky,
All cover'd with snow,
I lost my true lover,
Come a-courtin' too slow.

A-courtin's a pleasure,
A-flirtin's a grief,
A false-hearted lover,
Is worse than a thief.

A thief will but rob you,
of all that you save,
But a false-hearted lover
Will send you to grave.

Your grave will decay you
and turn you to dust:
Not a boy in ten thousand
a poor girl can trust

It's raining it's hailing,
the moon gives no light,
My horses can't travel
this dark road tonight.

Go put up your horses
and give them some hay,
And sit down beside me
as long as you stay

My horses ain't hungry, 
they won't eat your hay;
I'm headed for Georgia, 
I'll be on my way.
ON TOP OF OLD SMOKEY

On top of old Smoky,
All cover'd with snow,
I lost my true lover,
Come a-courtin' too slow. 

A-courtin's a pleasure,
A-flirtin's a grief,
A false-hearted lover,
Is worse than a thief. 

For a thief, he will rob you,
And take what you have,
But a false-hearted lover
Will send you to your grave. 

She'll (he'll) hug you and kiss you
And tell you more lies,
Than the cross-ties on the railroad,
Or the stars in the skies. 

On top of old Smoky,
All cover'd with snow,
I lost my true lover,
Come a-courtin' too slow.
