The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Foggy Mountain Top

If I had listened to what 4 mama 1 said
I would not be here to- 5 day
A 1 lying around this 4 old jail 1 house
Just a-weeping my 5 sweet life a 1 way

If I was on some 4 foggy mountain 1 top
I'd sail away to the 5 West
I'd 1 sail all around this 4 whole wide 1 world
To the girl I 5 love the 1 best

She's caused me to weep and she's caused me to moan
She caused me to leave my home
Oh the lonesome pines and the good ol' times
I'm on my way back home

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

It’s on Strum Machine!
