He was born in Point Leavell, Garrard County, Kentucky but built a music career in the northern states. His debut radio performance came in 1926 on the National Barn Dance show on WLS-AM in Chicago, Illinois
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. It rolled off the table And onto the floor, And then my poor meatball Rolled right out the door.
