Wish that I was on old Rocky Top

Down in the Tennessee hills

Ain’t no smoggy smoke on Rocky Top

Ain’t no telephone bills

 

Once I had a girl on Rocky Top

Half bear the other half cat

Wild as a mink but sweet as soda-pop

I still dream about that

 

Rocky Top you’ll always be

Home sweet home to me

Good ol’ Rocky Top

Rocky Top Tennessee, Rocky Top Tennessee

 

 

Once two strangers climbed ol’ Rocky Top

Looking for a moonshine still

Strangers ain’t come down from Rocky Top

Reckon they never will

 

The corn won’t grow at all on Rocky Top

Dirt’s too rocky by far

That’s why all the folks on Rocky Top

Get their corn from a jar

 

Rocky Top you’ll always be

Home sweet home to me

Good ol’ Rocky Top

Rocky Top Tennessee, Rocky Top Tennessee

 

 

I’ve had years of cramped up city life

Trapped like a duck in a pen

All I know is it’s a pity

Life can’t be simple again

 

Rocky Top you’ll always be

Home sweet home to me

Good ol’ Rocky Top

Rocky Top Tennessee, Rocky Top Tennessee

Rocky Top Tennessee
