Larry Sparks – Smoky Mountain Memories lyrics

Version 1-No capo
Intro
(F)//// // (Eb)/ (Bb)/ (F)//// // (Eb)/ (Bb)/ (F)//// ////

*(F) Smokey Mountain Memories, (Dm) 'bout my home in Tennessee
*(Bb) Yesterday keeps calling me, (C) calling me ho-oo-oo-oo-ome
(F) Mountains rising in my soul, (Dm) higher than the dreams I've known
(Bb) Misty eyes, they cling to me, like (C) Smokey Mountain Mem-o-(F)-ries

An old gray man with a dog a-(Dm)-sleep at his feet
Plays a (Gm) worn out fiddle, full of (Dm) mel-o-dies
He (F) smiles with his eyes, but the (Dm) lines on his face
(Gm) Told me as much as the (C) tunes he (F) played

Talkin' 'bout my:

(F) Smokey Mountain Mem-o-ries, (Dm) pretty girl's in Tennessee
(Bb) I was such a fool to leave, (C) leave her all alo-oo-oo-oo-one
(F) Think about her in my dreams, (Dm) wonder if she thinks of me
(Bb) I always hold her close to me, in my (C) Smokey Mountain Mem-o-(F)-ries

Instrumental: Follow pattern of first two lines of first verse*

(F)//// //// //

So mister, play your fiddle please, (Dm) play some mountain mem-o-ries
(Bb) I've been down a lonely road, (C) so far from ho-oo-oo-oo-ome
(F) Nothing left to hold onto, (Dm) I made some plans but they fell thru
(Bb) Now there's nothing left for me but my (C) Smokey Mountain Mem-o-(F)-ries

Repeat first verse

Instrumental: Follow pattern of first verse and fade out on last line
