Big Rock Candy Mountain Lyrics

Tex Ritter
Big Rock Candy Mountain
One evening as the sun went down and the circus it was over
The tent came down and the funny old clown said, “Boys, I'm now in clover”
I headed for a land that's far away beside the popcorn fountain
Now I'll see you all this coming fall in the Big Rock Candy Mountain

In the Big Rock Candy Mountain there's a land that's bright and fair
Where the doughnuts grow on bushes and there's lots of cookies there
Where the dogs and cats are happy and the sun shines everyday
Where there's birds and bees in the bubble-gum trees by the lemonade springs
And the whippoorwill sings in the Big Rock Candy Mountain

In the Big Rock Candy Mountain the houses are built of blocks
And the little steams of soda pop come trickling down the rocks
The soldiers there are made of lead and they are very brave
There's a lake of stew and ice cream too you can paddle all around in a paper canoe
In the Big Rock Candy Mountain

In the Big Rock Candy Mountain the frogs have wooden legs
And the bulldogs all have rubber teeth and the hens lay hard-boiled eggs
There's chocolate pie in all the trees and jam in all the lakes
Well I'm gonna go where the wind don't blow there's a big free show
And there's candy snow in the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

So come with me and you're gonna see the Big Rock Candy Mountain
