The fog rolls in the morning
And I can hardly find my way
Home to where the heart is
That words can't begin to say
Enough about the gentle way
You always take me in
The long and narrow one way roads
Got to take me home again

Go down, go down to Knoxville, girl
With that dark and roving eye
Go down, go down to Knoxville, girl
Cause I know you'll never be my bride

I met a little girl down in Knoxville town
And I've known her well
Feelin' good like I should
Into her love I fell
The night was long
She lay there by my side
We made love and in her arms
She keeps me satisfied



So on it goes
And no one knows
Where heartache ever ends
Trouble friend, you'll get exactly what it lends
The time is come
To steal my love from me
In this pain, I will remain
And sing this misery
