Wish that I was on old Rock -y Top, Down in the Ten -nes -see hills;
Ain't no smog -gy smoke on Rock -y Top, Ain't no tel -e -phone bills;
Once I had a girl on Rock -y Top, Half bear, the oth -er half cat;
Wild as mink, but sweet as so -da pop, I still dream a -bout that;
Rock -y Top, you'll al -ways be Home sweet home to me;
Good ol' Rock -y Top; Rock -y Top Ten -nes -see;
Rock -y Top Ten -nes -see.
