On Top Of Old Smokey
On top of old smokey
All covered with snow
I lost my true lover
By courtin' so slow
For courting`s a pleasure
(For courting`s a pleasure)
But parting is grief
(But parting is grief)
And a false-hearted lover
(And a false-hearted lover)
Is worse than a thief
(Is worse than a thief)
A thief will just rob you
(A thief will just rob you)
And take what you have
(And take what you have)
But a false hearted lover
(But a false hearted lover)
Will lead you to the grave
(Will lead you to the grave)
And the grave will decay you
(And the grave will decay you)
Turn you to dust
(And turn you to dust)
Not one boy in a hundred
(Not one boy in a hundred)
A poor girl can trust
(A poor girl can trust)
How True
They hug you and kiss you
(They hug you and kiss you)
Tell you more lies
(And tell you more lies)
Then cross-ties on the railroad
(then cross-ties on a railroad)
Or stars in the sky
(Or stars in the sky)

---- Instrumental Interlude ----

So come all you young maidens
(come all you young maidens)
And listen to me
(and listen to me)
Never place your affections
(never place your affections)
On a green willow tree
(on a green willow tree)
For the leaves they will whither
(for the leaves they will whither)
The roots will die
(the roots will die)
You'll all be forsaken
(you'll all be forsaken)
And never know why
(and never know why)

Pick of the Week
Title:Greenfields
Artist: Brothers Four - Contributor:Webmaster
Once there were green fields kissed by the sun.
Once there were valleys where rivers used to run.
Once there were blue skies with white clouds high above.
Once they were part of an everlasting love.
We were the lovers who strolled through green fields.

Green fields are gone now, parched by the sun.
Gone from the valleys where rivers used to run.
Gone with the cold wind that swept into my heart.
Gone with the lovers who let their dreams depart.
Where are the green fields that we used to roam ?

I'll never know what made you run away.
How can I keep searching when dark clouds hide the day.
I only know there's nothing here for me.
Nothing in this wide world, left for me to see.

Still I'll keep on waiting until you return.
I'll keep on waiting until the day you learn.
You can't be happy while your heart's on the roam,
You can't be happy until you bring it home.
Home to the green fields and me once again.
