King Of The Cannon County Hills Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Folks tell me I should go to the city
Go to school and learn a lot of things
But I already know what makes the fox fire glow
And just what time the robin redbreast sings
I know that the possum likes persimmons
I know that fishes breathe out through their gills
While I can kill a squirrel and court the sweetest girl
I'm the king of the Cannon County hills

[Chorus]
Let the señor have his señorita
Let the hippy have his LSD and pills
But when I'm with my darling in the mountees
I'm the king of the Cannon County hills

[Verse 2]
Well I know just where the groundhog sleeps in the winter
I can tell you by its leaf what kind of tree
I can tell you in a minute the kind of nest and what is in it
And I know just how to line a honey bee
Things I know you cannot learn in college
And I don't need cash 'cause I ain't got no bills
I can tell you in a flash how long to cook your mash
And the best comes from the Cannon County hills

[Chorus]
Oh let the señor have his señorita
Let the hippy have his LSD and pills
But when I'm with my darling in the mountees
I'm the king of the Cannon County hills

[Verse 3]
Well I know just how the crickets do their singing
I know how the firefly makes his light
I know how to spot ginsing and how to make a banjo twang
And how the wise old owl can see at night
Now I'm not saying don't go to college
Cause knowledge it can cure a lot o' ills
But I know this little song is gettin' way o'way too long
Come and see me in the Cannon County hills

[Chorus]
Oh let the señor have his señorita
Let the hippy have his LSD and pills
But when I'm with my darling in the mountees
I'm the king of the Cannon County hills
