[1] Wish that I was... On old Rocky Top
Down in the Tennessee hills.
Ain't no smoggy-smoke... On old Rocky Top
Ain't no telephone bills.

[A] 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.

The Chorus

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

[2] Once two strangers... Climbed old Rocky Top
Lookin' for a moonshine still
Strangers ain't... Come down from Rocky Top
Reckon they never will.

[B] 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

Repeat the chorus:
Rocky Top, you'll always be
Home sweet home to me
Good old Rocky Top
Rocky Top, Tennessee
Rocky Top, Tennessee

[3] 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.

Repeat the chorus:
Rocky Top, you'll always be
Home sweet home to me
Good old Rocky Top
Rocky Top, Tennessee
Rocky Top, Tennessee
