Asleep At The Wheel
"Ballad Of Davy Crockett" lyrics

Ballad Of Davy Crockett

Davy, Davy Crockett
King of the wild frontier

Born on a mountain top in Tennessee
The greenest state in the land of the free
Raised in the woods so he knew every tree
Killed him a bear when he was only three
Davy, Davy Crockett
King of the wild frontier

Off through the woods he's a marching along
Making up yarns and a singing a song
Itching for a fighting and righting a wrong
He's ringy as a bear and twice as strong
Davy, Davy Crockett
The buckskin buccaneer

He give his word and he give his hand
That his Indian friends could keep their land
And the rest of his life he took the stand
That justice was due every Indian band
Davy, Davy Crockett
Holding his promise dear

Now he's lost his love and his grief was gall
In his heart he wanted to leave it all
And lose himself in the forests tall
But he answered instead his country's call
Davy, Davy Crockett
Beginning his campaign

Needing his help they didn't vote blind
They put in Davy cause he was their kind
Sent up to Nashville the best they could find
A fighting spirit and a thinking mind
Davy, Davy Crockett
Choice of the whole frontier

The votes were counted and he won hands down
So they sent him off to Washington town
With his best dress suit still his buckskins brown
A living legend of growing renown
Davy, Davy Crockett
The Canebrake Congressman

He went off to Congress and served a spell
Fixing up the Government and laws as well
Took over Washington so we heared tell
And patched up the crack in the Liberty Bell
Davy, Davy Crockett
Seeing his duty clear

When he come home his politicking done
The western march had just begun
So he packed his gear and his trusty old gun
And lit out grinning to follow the sun
Davy, Davy Crockett
Leading the pioneers

He heard of Houston and Austin so
To the Texas plains he just had to go
Where freedom was fighting another foe
And they needed him there at the Alamo
Davy, Davy Crockett
The man who don't know fear

His land is biggest and his land is best
From the grassy plains to the mountain crest
He's ahead of us all meeting the test
Following his legend into the West
Davy, Davy Crockett
King of the wild frontier

Davy, Davy Crockett
King of the wild frontier
