Lyrics

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 there was a girl on Rocky Top,
Half bear the other half cat.
Wild as a mink, sweet as soda pop,
I still dream about that.

(Chorus)

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 on Rocky Top,
Lookin' for a moonshine still.
Strangers ain't come back from Rocky Top,
Guess 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.

(Chorus)

Now I've had years of cramped up city life,
Trapped like a duck in a pen.
Now all I know is it's a pity life,
Can't be simple again.

(Chorus)

Rocky Top, you'll always be,
Home sweet home to me,
Good ol' rocky top, rocky top Tennessee.
Rocky Top Tennessee.
