Foggy Mountain Top

print

If I’d only listened to what my mama said
I would not be here today
A lying around this old jailhouse
Wasting my poor life away

   If I was on some foggy mountain top
   I’d sail away to the West
   I’d sail all around this whole wide would
   To the girl I love the best

Oh she caused me to weep and she caused me to mourn
She caused me to leave my home
Oh the lonesome pines and the good old times
I’m on my way back home

Now if you see that girl of mine
There’s something you can tell her
She need not fool her time away
To court some other feller
