What I wish that I was on ole rocky top
Down in the Tennessee hills
Ain't no smoggy smoke on rocky top
Don't be telephone bills

And now corn don't grow at all on rocky top
Dirt's too rocky by far
And that's why all the folks on rocky top
Drink their corn from a jar

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

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

Once I had appeared on rocky top
Half bear the other half cat
Wild as a mink, but sweet as soda pop
But 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
