Subject: Lyr Add: FOGGY MOUNTAIN TOP
From: Bert Hansell
Date: 04 Aug 97 - 04:12 PM

Bill,
Here is one version

CHORUS:
I wish I was on some foggy mountain top
I would sail away to the west
I'd sail right around this whole wide world
To the girl I love the best

You caused me to weep and you caused me to moan
You caused me to leave my home
It's a long lonesome road down to North Carolina
And I'm on my way back home

If you come around and you're looking for me
Won't you put on your navy blue
Cos that old gray dress that you always wear
It don't do a thing for you

If I had a ticket to heaven up above
I tell you what I would do
I'd trade that ticket so that I could be
On some foggy mountain top with you


Enjoy,

Bert.

This is an interesting version of Foggy MT. Top. I do a lot of Carter Family songs and have heard several redo's by Celtic musicians as of late. Where did this version come from?

I heard it on TV in England in the early sixties. I've got a feeling that it was sung by Steve Benbow but I wouldn't swear to it.

Bert.
