Ballad of Davy Crockett Lyrics

Now, what do you think of that?

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 kilt him a b'ar when he was only three
Davy, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier!

Fought single-handed through the Injun War
Till the Creeks was whipped an' the peace was in store
An' while he was a-handlin' this risky chore
Made hisself a legend forevermore
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
An' lose hisself in the forests tall
But he answered instead his country's call
Davy, Davy Crockett, the choice of the whole frontier

He went off to Congress an' served a spell
Fixin' up the Government an' laws as well
Took over Washington so I've heared tell
An' patched up a crack in the Liberty Bell
Davy, Davy Crockett, seein' his duty clear!

When he come home, his politickin' done
Why, the big western march had just begun
So he packed his gear an' his trusty gun
An' lit out a-grinnin' to follow the sun
Davy, Davy Crockett, leadin' the pioneer!

His land is biggest, his land is best
From grassy plains to the mountain crest
He's ahead of us all and meetin' the test
And a-followin' his legend right into the West
Davy, Davy Crockett, the king of the wild frontier!
Davy, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier!
