lyrics

Girl walked around
Found money on the ground today
Guy hitched a ride
Driver found that he had much to say

It seemed to be
A sunny Saturday afternoon
Smell in the blue air
Thinkin’ it might shower soon

A stranger said, “look son
You’re ruining my rainy fun”
Something’s begun
Thinkin’ we might finish one

On top of Old Smokey
A lonely meatball on the run
Waiting on that train coming round the mountain
Well she might not come

He likes to dance
With two left feet
She likes to sing
Like something in heat

He likes to walk,
She likes to talk
He keeps it open
She likes it locked

On top of Old Smokey
A lonely meatball on the run
Waiting on that train coming round the mountain
Well she might not come
