Old Smoky may be a high mountain somewhere in the Ozarks or the central Appalachians, as the tune bears the stylistic hallmarks of the Scottish and Irish people who settled the region. Possibilities include Clingmans Dome, named "Smoky Dome" by local Scots-Irish inhabitants, but exactly which mountain it is may be lost to antiquity. It is unclear when, where and by whom the song was first recorded. Pete Seeger modified a version that he learned in the Appalachians, writing new words and banjo music. Christmas Album, Burl Ives. Burl Ives Sings for Fun, Burl Ives.
On top of old Smokey, I went for to weep, For a false-hearted lover Is worse than a thief. Is worse than a thief, dear, Is worse than a thief, For a false-hearted lover Is worse than a thief. For a thief, he will rob you, Of all that you have, But a false-hearted lover Will send you to your grave. There is a very popular kids ballad, known as On top of Spaghetti which uses the same tune as On top of Old Smokey. This was composed and first played in 1963 by Tom Glaze and the Do-Re-Mi Children group, and is a parody version of On Top of Old Smokey. On top of spaghetti, All covered with cheese, I lost my poor meatball When somebody sneezed.
