“Rocky Top,” Words to

The words to “Rocky Top” are:

Wish that I was on ol’ Rocky Top, down in the Tennessee Hills; / Ain’t no smog or 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.

Refrain: 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; / 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.”
