Wish that I was on ol' Rocky Top
 Down in the Tennessee hills
Aint' 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,
 but sweet as soda pop 
I still dream about that.

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

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



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

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



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

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

Beautiful Tennessee
