Rocky Top

Felice and Boudleaux Bryant

    Bm               A         C                  G
Rocky Top you'll always be home sweet home to me
         D                    C     D              C     D
Good ole Rocky Top, Rocky Top Tennessee, Rocky Top Tennessee

Wish that I was on ole   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   other half cat
Wild as a mink  but sweet as soda pop I still dream about that

2:
Once 2 strangers climbed ole Rocky Top looking for a moonshine still
Strangers ain't come down from Rocky Top reckon they never will
Corn don't grow at all on Rocky Top ground's too rocky by far
That's why all the folks on Rocky Top drink their corn from a jar

3:
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
