1. 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. cho: 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. 2. 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. cho.... 3. Oh, when you see that two-faced blonde, There's somethin' you can tell 'er; She need not fool her time away, A-tryin' to steal a feller. cho.... 4. 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. cho....
