Please visit my www.OceanOfSongs.com site I’ve just
started.

(NOTE: I can spell, but I ran some words together on
long lines to try and prevent “word wrap”.)

CHORUS:
[Em] Rocky Top you’ll [D]always be [F]home sweet home
to [C]me
[C]Good ole [G]Rocky Top, Rocky Top [F]Tennes-[G]see,
Rocky Top [F]Tennes-[G]see

Verses:
1.
G / C / G / Em / D / G
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 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

2.
Once 2strangers climbed ol RockyTop lookin for a
moonshine still
Strangers ain’t come down from Rocky Top, reckon they
never will
Corn don’t grow at all on Rocky Top, ground’s too
rocky by far
That’s why all the folks on RockyTop drink their corn
from a jar

3.
I’ve had years of crampedup city life trapped likea
duck ina pen
All I know is it’s a pity life can’t be simple a-gain

Ending on the last chorus:
[G]Rocky Top Tenn-e-seee [F]-eeeeeee [C]-eeeeeeee
[G]-eeeee
