Four ladies promenade go once inside and then
You get on home and swing there with that man
You join hands circle to the left go walkin' round
Do a left allemande now weave that ring and go
Rocky Top you'll alway be
Swing the lady round and then you promenade for me
You promenade that lady to Tennessee for me
Rocky Top Tennessee

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head two couples square thru go 4 hands around
All the way around and then you dosado
You touch 1/4 now, do a walk & dodge somehow
Do a partner trade, you pass the ocean now
Recycle here, you pass to the center
Square thru 3 hands, swing and promenade
Good old Rocky Top
Rocky Top Tennessee

Rocky Top  (1965)

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.


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.


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.


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

Lyrics by Boudleax and Felice Bryant.
Recorded by The Osborne Brothers.
