THE BALLAD OF DAVY CROCKETT
Written by TOM BLACKBURN and GEORGE BRUNS

[D] Born on a mountain top in [G] Tennes-[D] see
Greenest state in the [A] Land of the Free
[D] Raised in the woods so's he [G] knew ev'ry [A] tree
Kilt him a b'ar when he was only [D] three.

Davy, [G] Davy [D] Crockett, King of the [A] wild front-[D] ier!

ln eighteen thirteen the Creeks uprose
Addin' redskin arrows to the country's woes
Now, Injun fightin' is somethin' he knows
So he shoulders his rifle an' off he goes.

Davy, Davy Crockett, The man who don't know fear!

Off through the woods he's a marchin' along
Makin' up yarns an' a singin' a song
Itchin' for fightin' an' rightin' a wrong
He's ringy as a b'ar an twict as strong.

Davy, Davy Crockett, The buckskin buccaneer!

Andy Jackson is our gen'ral's name
His reg'lar soldiers we'll put to shame
Them redskin varmints us volunteers 'll tame
'Cause we got the guns with the sure-fire aim.

Davy, Davy Crockett, The champion of us all!

Headed back to war from the ol' home place
But Red Stick was leadin' a merry chase
Fightin' an' burnin' at a devil's pace
South to the swamps on the Florida Trace.

Davy, Davy Crockett, Trackin' the redskins down!

Fought single-handed through the Injun War
Till the Creeks was whipped an' peace was in store
An' while he was handlin' this risky chore
Made hisself a legend for evermore.

Davy, Davy Crockett, King of the wild frontier!

He give his word an' he give his hand
That his Injun friends could keep their land
An' the rest of his life he took the stand
That justice was due every redskin band.

Davy, Davy Crockett, Holdin' his promise dear!

Home fer the, winter with his family,
Happy as squirrels in the ol' gum tree,
Bein' the father he wanted to be,
Close to his boys as the pod an' the pea.

Davy, Davy Crockett, Holdin' his young 'uns dear!

But the ice went out an' the warm winds came
An' the meltin' snow showed tracks of game
An' the flowers of Spring filled the woods with flame
An' all of a sudden life got too tame.

Davy, Davy Crockett, Headin' on West again!

Off through the woods we're ridin' along
Makin' up yarn's an' singin' a song
He's ringy as a b'ar an' twict as strong
An 'knows he's right 'cause he aint often 'wrong.

Davy, Davy Crockett, The man who don't know fear?

Off through the woods we're ridin' along
Makin' up yarns an' singin' a 'song
He's ringy as a b'ar an' twict as strong
An' knows  he's right 'cause be ain't often wrong.

Davy, Davy Crockett, The man who don't know fear!

Lookin' fer a place where the air smells clean
Where the trees is tall an' the grass is green
Where the fish is fat in an untouched stream
An' the teemin' woods is a hunter's dream.

Davy, Davy Crockett, Lookin' fer Paradise!

Now he'd lost his love an his grief was gall
In his heart he wanted to leave it all
An' lose himself in the forests tall
But he answered instead his country's call.

Davy, Davy Crockett, Beginnin' his campaign!

Needin' his help they didn't vote blind
They put in Davy 'cause he was their kind
Sent up to Nashville the best they could find
A fightin' Spirit an' a thinkin' mind.

Davy, Davy Crockett, The man who don't know fear!

The votes were counted an' he won hands down
So they sent him off to Washin'ton town
With his best dress suit still his buckskins brown
A livin' legend of growin' renown.

Davy, Davy Crockett, The Canebrake Congressman!

He went off to Congress an' served a spell
Fixin' up the Gover'ment an' laws as well
Took over Washin'ton so we heered tell
An' patched up the crack in the Liberty Bell.

Davy, Davy Crockett, Seein' his duty clear!

Him an' his jokes travelled all through the land
An' his speeches made him friends to beat the band
His politickin' was their favorite brand
An' everyone wanted to shake his hand.

Davy, Davy Crockett, Helpin' his legend grow!

He knew when he spoke he sounded the knell
Of his hopes for White House and fame as well
But he spoke out strong so hist'ry books tell
An' patched up the crack In the liberty Bell.

Davy, Davy Crockett, Seein' his duty clear!

When he come home his politickin' done
The western march had just begun
So he packed his gear an' his trusty gun
An' lit out grinnin' to follow the sun.

Davy, Davy Crockett, Leadin' the pioneer!

He heard of Houston an' Austin an' so
To the Texas plains he jest had to go
Where freedom was fightin' another foe
An' they needed him at the Alamo.

Davy, Davy Crockett, The man who don't know fear!

His land is biggest an' his land is best
From grassy plains to the mountain crest
He's ahead of us all meetin' the test
Followin' his legend into the West.

Davy, Davy Crockett, King of the wild frontier!
