Ballad of Davey Crockett Lyrics - Smokey River Boys


Kentucky Headhunters & Smokey River Boys

Rock-a-billy throughout
[1] Born on a mountain top in Tennessee
The greenest state in the land of the free
Raised in the woods so's he knew every tree
Killed him a bear when he was only three

[cho] DAVY, DAVY CROCKETT,
KING OF THE WILD FRONTIER!
DAVY, DAVY CROCKETT,
KING OF THE WILD FRONTIER

Music Channel
[2] Up through the woods he's a marchin' along
A’makin' up yarns and ‘a singin' a song
Itchin' fer a fightin' and rightin' a wrong
Crazy as a bear and twice as strong

[cho] DAVY, DAVY CROCKETT,
KING OF THE WILD FRONTIER!
DAVY, DAVY CROCKETT,
KING OF THE WILD FRONTIER

INSTRUMENTAL TURN-A-ROUND

[3] This land is biggest and this land is best
From the grassy plains to the mountain crest
He's ahead of us all a’meetin' the test,
We follow his legend into the West

[cho] DAVY, DAVY CROCKETT,
KING OF THE WILD FRONTIER!
DAVY, DAVY CROCKETT,
KING OF THE WILD FRONTIER

TAG: DAVY, DAVY CROCKETT,
KING OF THE WILD FRONTIER
