Wish that I was on olí Rocky Top Lyrics


Tennessee State Song Lyrics

Wish that I was on olí Rocky Top Lyrics
Wish that I was on olí Rocky Top,
down in the Tennessee hills;
Ainít no smoggy smoke on Rocky Top;
Ainít 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;

Once two strangers climbed olí Rocky Top,
lookiní for a moonshine still;
Strangers ainít come down from Rocky Top;
Reckon they never will;
Corn wonít grow at all on Rocky Top;
Dirtís too rocky by far;
Thatís why all the folks on Rocky Top
get their corn from a jar;

Iíve had years of cramped-up city life
Trapped like a duck in a pen;
All I know is itís a pity life
Canít be simple again.

Chorus Rocky Top, youíll always be
home sweet home to me;
Good olí Rocky Top;
Rocky Top, Tennessee;
Rocky Top, Tennessee.
