Enjoy! I love playin' this song. Doug "'Bama rules" Smith P.S. in the live version on CD, they do an extra verse in the middle the lyrics to it are: This mountain king, 's done left his throne On the Tennessee River and his mountain home But I'm goin' back, leavin' today to my homeland, so far away Drivin' down to Dixie, wastin' no time Back to the good life I left behind Goin' to the river with my fishin' line I'm on Lookout Mountain about suppertime (chorus, last verse, etc.)
