On Top of Old Smokie

On top of old smokie all covered with snow
I lost my true lover from courting too slow

For courting's a pleasure but pouting brings grief
A false hearted lover is worse than a thief

A thief they will rob you and take all you see
A false hearted lover will drive you to your grave

And the grave will enclose you and turn you to dust
Not a man in a million can a pretty girl trust

They swear that they love you then tell you more lies
Than cross ties on the railroad or stars in the skies

Come all you young maidens and listen to me
Don't place your affection underneath and evergreen tree

The leaves they will wither and the roots will all die
And you'll be forsaken and never know why

What's this song about?

    Superb blog post, I have book marked this internet site so ideally I’ll see much more on this subject in the foreseeable future!

    My partner and I really enjoyed reading this blog post, I was just itching to know do you trade featured posts? I am always trying to find someone to make trades with and merely thought I would ask.
