Ballad Of Davy Crockett
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
Gold watch, diamond ring
I ain’t missin’ not a single thing
Cufflinks, stick pin
When I step out I’m gonna do you in
