BALLAD OF DAVY CROCKETT.


__________*__________

1) Born on a mountain top in Tennessee;

Greenest state in the land of the free;

Raised in the woods so he knew ev'ry tree;

Kilt him a b'ar when he was only three.

Davy, Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier!

_______________________________________________________

2) Off through the woods he was marchin' along;

Makin' up yarns an' singin' a song;

Itchin' for some fightin' and rightin' of wrongs.

Ringy as a bar and twice as strong.

Davy Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier.

_______________________________________________________

3) He went off to Congress an' served a spell;

Fixin' up the Govern'ments an' laws as well;

Took over Washin'ton so we heered tell;

An' patched up the crack in the Liberty Bell!

Davy, Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier!

_______________________________________________________

4) 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, King of the Wild Frontier!

_______________________________________________________

5) He heard of Houston an' Austin 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, King of the Wild Frontier!

_______________________________________________________

6) 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!
