*(F) Smokey Mountain Memories, (Dm) 'bout my home in Tennessee

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

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
