BILL ANDERSON lyrics - Rocky Top

BILL ANDERSON
"Rocky Top"

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
Part bear the other part 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 ole Rocky Top, Rocky Top Tennessee
Rocky Top Tennessee.

Once two strangers climbed old Rocky Top
Lookin' for a moonshine still
Straingers ain't come down from Rocky Top
Reckon they never will

Corn won't grow at all on Rocky Top
Ground'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 ole 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 ole Rocky Top, Rocky Top Tennessee
Rocky Top Tennessee...
