Ballad Of Davy Crockett Lyrics

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!

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 Fronteir.

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 Fronteir!

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 Fronteir!

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 Fronteir!

His land is biggest an' his land is best
From grassy plains to the mountain crest
He's ahead of us all an' meetin' the test
Followin' his legend right into the West
Davy, Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier!
