Roy Clark performs "Rocky Top" live video.

"Rocky Top" is an American country and bluegrass song written by Felice and Boudleaux Bryant in 1967 and first recorded by the Osborne Brothers later that same year. The song, which is a city dweller's lamentation over the loss of a simpler and freer existence in the hills of Tennessee, is one of Tennessee's ten official state songsand has been recorded by dozens of artists from multiple musical genres worldwide since its publication. In U.S. college athletics, "Rocky Top" is associated with the Tennessee Volunteers of the University of Tennessee (UT), whose Pride of the Southland Band has played a marching band version of the song at the school's sporting events since the early 1970s


Roy Clark Rocky Top lyrics

I 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 a mink but sweet as soda pop

I still dream about that


Rocky Top you'll always be

Home sweet home to me

Good old Rocky Top

Rocky Top Tennessee Rocky Top Tennessee


Once two strangers climbed old 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


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
