Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Wish that I was on ol’ Rocky Top
Down in the Tennessee hills
Ain’t no smoggy smoke up on Rocky Top
Ain’t no telephone bills
Once I had a girl on ol’ Rocky Top
Half bear, the other half cat
Wild as a mink but sweet as soda pop
I still dream about that

[Chorus]
Rocky Top, you’ll always be
Home sweet home to me
Good ol’ Rocky Top
Rocky Top, Tennessee
Rocky Top, Tennessee

[Verse 2]
Once two strangers climbed ol’ Rocky Top
Lookin’ for a moonshine still
Strangers ain’t come down from ol’ 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]

Home sweet home to me
Good ole Rocky Top
