On top of old smokey.On top of old smokey all covered with snowI lost my true lover for courting too slowFor courting"s A pleasure and parting"s A griefAnd A false hearted lover is worse than A thiefFor A thief will just rob you and take all you saveBut A false hearted lover will lead you to the graveAnd the grave will decay you and turn you to dustNot one girl in A hundred A poor boy can trustThey"ll hug you and kiss you and tell you more liesThan cross lines on A railroad or stars in the skiesSo come all your maidens and listen to meNever place your affections on A green willow treeFor the leaves they will wither and the roots they will dieYou"ll all be forsaken and never know why.
