Big Rock Candy Mountain.


Big Rock Candy Mountain.

American Folk Song which was showcased on the Easter Holiday Classic: The Easter Bunny is Coming to Town.


1) On a summer day

In the month of May

A burly bum came hiking

Down a shady lane

Through the sugar cane

He was looking for his liking

As he roamed along

He sang a song

Of the land of milk and honey

Where a bum can stay

For many a day

And he won't need any money.


* * *


Oh the buzzin' of the bees

In the peppermint trees

Near the soda water fountain!

At the lemonade springs

Where the bluebird sings

On the big rock candy mountain!

* * *

2) There's a lake of gin

We can both jump in

And the handouts grow on bushes.

In the new-mown hay

We can sleep all day

And the bars all have free lunches.

Where the mail train stops

And there ain't no cops

And the folks are tender-hearted.

Where you never change your socks

And you never throw rocks

And your hair is never parted.


* * *

3) Oh, a farmer and his son,

They were on the run

To the hay field they were bounding

Said the bum to the son,

"Why don't you come

To that big rock candy mountain?"

So the very next day

They hiked away,

The mileposts they were counting

But they never arrived

At the lemonade tide

On the big rock candy mountain!
