Now, I've got a girl, she lives down on Shady Lane
Now, I've got a girl, she lives down on Shady Lane
I love that girl, but I'm scared to call her name

It's gonna be one of these mornin's, swear, and it won't be long
It's gonna be one of these mornin's, swear, and it won't be long
I'm gonna catch the first thing smokin', and down the road I'm goin'

Well, my home ain't here, baby, it's way out in the West
Well, my home ain't here, baby, it's way out in the West
In the Smoky Mountains, where the eagle builds his nest

Did you ever love a girl, a girl you hate to lose?
Did you ever love a girl, a girl you hate to lose?
Don't lose your temper when you've been drinking booze
