On Rocky Top

 

She left her home for a long shot

He brought her to where a civil war was fought

It’s over now except her blue and grey thoughts

On Rocky Top – On Rocky Top

 

All alone on Rocky Top

Where she comes from the cold just don’t drop

Used to the chill now but her mind wants hot

On Rocky Top – On Rocky Top

 

The sky’s so low it’s on the tree tops

Her eyes don’t know when the weather stops

These days go slow waiting for the rain to drop

On Rocky Top – On Rocky Top

 

And she don’t know where the boy’s gone

Word is he lit out way before dawn

She just knows that he’s been away so long

From Rocky Top - All alone and it just won’t stop

 

Nashville Skyline shadows in her mind

A closer friend she may never find

Three hundred miles is a long way back in time

From Rocky Top – From Rocky Top

 

That four hour drive is an uphill climb

The grade’s not bad when the weather’s fine

He could make it back if the sun would shine

On Rocky Top – On Rocky Top

 

And she don’t know where the boy’s gone

Word is he lit out way before dawn

She hears his voice in the same old songs

On Rocky Top - All alone and it just won’t stop

 

She left that day when she heard him say

Our time is up and he walked away

When she came back there was no case to be made

On Rocky Top – On Rocky Top

 

You hear that wind through the tall pines

It’s going to blow past the Winter time

When spring returns will it all be fine

On Rocky Top – All alone and it just won’t stop

All alone on Rocky Top – praying for hope and the prayers don’t stop

Don’t ever walk away before you say what you have to say

On Rocky Top – All alone and it just won’t stop
