The Ballad Of Davy Crockett by Tennessee Ernie Ford


Born on a mountain in Tennessee
Greenest state in the land of the free
Raised in the woods so's he knew every tree
He killed him a b'ar when he was only three
Davy, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier
Fought single-handed thru the Injun war
'Till the Creeks was whipped and the peace was in store
And while he was a'handlin' this risky chore
Made hisself a legend forever more
Davy, Davy Crockett, the man who don't know fear
When he lost his love, his grief was gall
In his heart, he wanted to leave it all
And lose hisself in the forest tall
But he answered, instead, his country's call
Davy, Davy Crockett, the choice of the whole frontier
He went off to Congress and served a spell
Fixin' up the government and laws as well
Took over Washington, so I hear tell
And patched up a crack in the Liberty Bell
Davy, Davy Crockett, seein' his duty clear
When he came home, his politickin' done
Why, the big western march had just begun
So he packed his gear and his trusty gun
And lit out a'grinnin' to follow the sun
Davy, Davy Crockett, leadin' the pioneer
His land is the biggest, his land is the best
From grassy plaines to the mountain crest
He's ahead of us all and meetin' the test
And a'follern' his legend right into the west
Davy, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier
Davy, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier
