Wish that I was on ol' 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;
Once two strangers climbed ol' Rocky Top,
lookin' for a moonshine still;
Stangers ain't come down from Rocky Top
Reckon they never will;
Corn don'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 cooped-up city life
Trapped like a duck in a pen;
All I know is it's a pity life
Can't be simple again.
