Ballad Of Davy Crockett
[Music by George Bruns and Words by Tom Blackburn]


Davy, Davy Crocket
The 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 ev'ry tree
Kilt him a b'ar when he was only three
Davy, Davy Crockett, the king of the wild frontier

He fought single-handed through the Injun War
Till the Creeks was whipped an' peace was in store
An' while he was handlin' this risky chore
He made hisself a legend for evermore
Davy, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier

Oh when he lost his love his grief was gall
In his heart he wanted to leave it all
And 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 and served a spell
Fixin' up the Govern'ments and laws as well
Took over Washington so we heered tell
And patched up the crack in the Liberty Bell
Davy, Davy Crockett, serving his country well

When he come home his politickin' done
Why the big western march had just begun
He packed up his gear and his trusty gun
And lit out grinnin' to follow the sun
Davy, Davy Crockett, a leadin' the pioneer

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

King of the wild frontier

Title:Greenfields
Artist: Brothers Four - Contributor:Webmaster
Once there were green fields kissed by the sun.
Once there were valleys where rivers used to run.
Once there were blue skies with white clouds high above.
Once they were part of an everlasting love.
We were the lovers who strolled through green fields.

Green fields are gone now, parched by the sun.
Gone from the valleys where rivers used to run.
Gone with the cold wind that swept into my heart.
Gone with the lovers who let their dreams depart.
Where are the green fields that we used to roam ?

I'll never know what made you run away.
How can I keep searching when dark clouds hide the day.
I only know there's nothing here for me.
Nothing in this wide world, left for me to see.

Still I'll keep on waiting until you return.
I'll keep on waiting until the day you learn.
You can't be happy while your heart's on the roam,
You can't be happy until you bring it home.
Home to the green fields and me once again.
