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.
