Wish that I was on old 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 mink, but sweet as soda pop, I still dream about that;
Rocky Top, you'll always be Home sweet home to me;
Good ol' Rocky Top; Rocky Top Tennessee;
Rocky Top Tennessee.
