The Ballad of Davy Crockett

Borned on a mountaintop in Tennessee
Greenest state in the land of the free
Raised in the woods so's he knew ev'ry tree
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
While he was handlin' this risky chore
Made hisself a legend for evermore
Davy, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier
 
He give his word an' he give his hand
That his Injun friends could keep their land
The rest of his life he took the stand
That justice was due ever redskin band
Davy, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier
 
He went off to Congress an' served a spell
Fixin' up the government an' laws as well
Took over Washin'ton so we heered tell
An' patched up the crack in the Liberty Bell
Davy, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier
 
When he come home his politickin' done
The western march had just begun
So he packed his gear an' his trusty gun
An' lit out grinnin' to follow the sun
Davy, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier
 
His land is biggest an' his land is best
From grassy plains to the mountain crest
He's ahead of us all, meetin' the test
Followin' his legend into the West
Davy, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier
 
Davy, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier
 
King of the wild frontier.
