On Top of Old Smokey 歌詞

On Top of Old Smokey (在老護林熊的頭頂) - Josh White (喬什·懷特)/Brownie McGhee

On top of old smokey

 

All covered with snow

 

I lost my true lover

 

From a courting too slow

 

Now courting's a pleasure

 

But parting is grief

 

And a false hearted lover

 

Is worse than a thief

 

A thief will but rob you

 

And take what you have

 

But a false hearted lover

 

Will send you to your grave

 

The grave will decay you

 

And turn you to dust

 

There's no girl in twenty

 

A poor man can trust

 

She'll tell you she loves you

 

And tell you more lies

 

Than cross-ties on a railroad

 

Or stars in the skies

 

Come all you pair maidens

 

Take warnings from me

 

Never place your affection

 

On a green willow tree

 

The leaves they will wither

 

The roots they will die

 

Your lover will leave you

 

And you never know why

 

Your lover will leave you

 

 

And you never know why
