ROCKY TOP

Written by: Felice and Boudleaux Bryant in 1967

Originally recorded by The Osborne Brothers in 1967

CAPO 4 (chords related to capo)
Of course, you can play it with or without the capo depending on your singing range!


(G)            (C)    (G)       (Em)        (D)       (G)
Wish that I was on ole Rocky Top down in the Tennessee hills

(G)            (C)      (G)        (Em)     (D)       (G)
Ain't no smoggy smoke on Rocky Top, ain't no telephone bills

(G)         (C)     (G)        (Em)          (D)        (G)
Once I had a girl on Rocky Top, half bear the other half cat

(G)              (C)      (G)       (Em)    (D)         (G)
Wild as a mink as sweet as soda pop, I still dream about that

Chorus:

(Em) 	          (D)       (F)                (C)
Rocky Top, you'll always be home sweet home to me

        (G)                   (F)   (G)            (F)   (G)
Good ole Rocky Top - Rocky Top Tennessee, Rocky Top Tennessee

(Break)

Once two strangers climbed ole Rocky Top lookin' for a moonshine still.
Strangers ain't come down from 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)
(Break)

I've had years of cramped up city life; stuck like a duck in a pen.
All I know is it's a pity life can't be simple again.

(Chorus)

Thanks for the album cover and the video Ray!

Also, the Osborne Brothers play this with Capo 4 - according to the video and most recordings I've heard.
