Earl Scruggs

Earl Eugene Scruggs (January 6, 1924 – March 28, 2012) was an American musician noted for perfecting and popularizing a three-finger banjo-picking style (now called "Scruggs style") that is a defining characteristic of bluegrass music. Although other musicians had played in three-finger style before him, Scruggs shot to prominence when he was hired by Bill Monroe to fill the banjo slot in his group, the Blue Grass Boys. more »

If I was on some foggy mountain top
I'd sail away to the West
I'd sail all around this old wide world
To the one I love the best

If I had listened t'what mama said
I would not have been here today
Wishing for things I'll never have
And weeping my sweet life away

You caused me to weep, you caused me to mourn
You caused me to leave my home
Oh, that lonesome pine and those good old times
I'm on my way back home

If I was on some foggy mountain top
I'd sail away to the West
I'd sail all around this old wide world
To the one I love the best

Oh, when you see that two-faced blonde
There's somethin' you can tell 'er
She need not to fool her time away
A-tryin' to steal a feller

She caused me to weep, she caused me to mourn
She caused me to leave my home
Oh, that lonesome pine and those good old times
I'm on my way back home

If I was on some foggy mountain top
I'd sail away to the West
I'd sail all around this old wide world
To the one I love the best

Oh, when you come to courtin' now
Put on you navy blue
That long tail "roust-a-bout" you wear
Don't do a thing for you
