Rocky Top (Boudleaux Bryant and Felice Bryant) 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 and sweet as soda pop I still dream about that cho: Rocky Top, you'll always be Home sweet home to me; Good ol' Rocky Top Rocky Top, Tennessee Rocky Top, Tennessee. Once two strangers climbed ol' Rocky Top Lookin' for a moonshine still, Strangers ain't come down from Rocky Top Reckon they never will. Corn won't grow at all on Rocky Top Dirt's too rocky by far; That why all the folks on Rocky Top Get their corn from a jar. 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. Copyright 1967 House of Bryant Publications RG
