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

Once there was a girl on rocky top
Half bear the other half cat
Wild as a mink sweet as soda pop
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

Once two strangers climbed on rocky top
Lookin' for a moonshine still
Strangers ain't come back from rocky top
Guess 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

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

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

Rocky top Tennessee
Rocky top Tennessee
Yeah, rocky top Tennessee
