On Top Of Old Smokey

 4  4   5  6   7     -6   -6  -5     6   -6    6
On top of old Smo – key, all cov – ered with snow

4   4   5   6   6  -4    5   -5    5   -4   4
I lost my true lov-er, from court-ing too slow.

 4    4    5   6   7    -6   -6  -5   6  -6   6
Now court-ing is pleas-ure, and part-ing is grief,

 6  6   4     5    6  6  -4  5   -5    5 -4   4
And a false heart-ed lov-er is worse than a thief.

4   4     5    6   7   -6   -6  -5    6   -6   6
A thief will just rob you, and take what you have

4   4     5    6  6  -4   5   -5   5  -4  4
A false heart-ed lov-er will lead you to the grave

 4    4    5    6  7   -6   -6  -5   6  -6   6
The grave will de-cay you, and turn you to dust

 6   6   4   5 6  6   -4  5  -5    5   -4   4
Not one boy in a hun-dred a poor girl can trust

  4   4   5   6    7   -6   -6  -5   6   -6   6
They hug you and kiss you, and tell you more lies

  4    4    5    6  6   -4    5
Than cross-ties on the rail-road,

-5   5   -4  4
or stars in the sky

 4   4   5    6     7   -6   -6  -5   6 -6  6
So come all young maid-ens, and list-en to me

 6  6    4     5   6   6   -4
Ne-ver place your af-fect-ions

 5 5   -5   5   -4   4
on a green will-ow tree

 4     4     5    6    6   -4
The leaves they will whit-her,

 5   -5     5   -4   4
the roots they will die

   4    4   5  6   6  -4   5   -5  5  -4   4
You’ll all be for-sa-ken, and nev-er know why.
