Smokey Don't Go  (John Charles Lewis/John Sebastian)


I can recall your voice exactly
And I still can bring your words back to me
And every now and then in my Memory
I hear a love song sung so tenderly... you got me cryin'
"Oh no...Smokey don't go
I don't want to fall in love without the miracles"
I said "Oh no...Smokey don't go
I don't want to fall in love without the miracles"

In my life I been lonely and I've been in love
But you always seemed to know what I was thinkin' of
You advised me and kept me smilin' 
Yeah, you glided through my life with such a smooth,
cool style

Now Smokey...Oooh Smokey don't go
I don't want to fall in love without the miracles

Like a cool breeze on a soft, soft summer day
Smokey you put my mind at ease
And carried all my cares away
Oooh, Smokey...you sang the secrets of my heart
How can you tell me that it's time to part now
Smokey oh...Smokey don't go
I don't want to fall in love without the miracles
I said, "Oh no...Smokey don't go!"
