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
Half bear, the other half 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 old Rocky Top, Rocky Top, Tennessee.
Rocky Top, Tennessee.
Once two strangers climbed old 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's why all the folks on Rocky Top
Get their corn from a jar. Chorus
I've had years of cooped up city life,
Trapped like a dog in a pen.
All I know is it's a pity life
Can't be simple again. Chorus
