Smoky Mountain Memories


Smokey Mountain memories about my home in Tennessee.
Yesterday keeps calling me; calling me home.
Mountains rising in my soul higher than the dreams I've known.
Empty eyes they cling to me; my Smokey Mountain memories.

An old gray man with a dog asleep at his feet
Plays a worn out fiddle full of melodies.
He smiles with his eyes but the lines on his face
Told me as much as the tunes he played.

Talking bout Smokey mountain memories pretty girl in Tennessee
I was such a fool to leave  leave her all alone
Think about her in my dreams I wonder if she thinks of me
I always hold her close to me in my Smokey Mountain memories


So mister play your fiddle please. Play some mountain memories.
I've been down a lonely road so far from home.
Nothing left to hold onto. I made some plans but they fell through.
Now there's nothing left for me but my Smokey Mountain memories.
