G C GBorn on a mountain top in Tennessee,
G A DGreenest state in the land of the free.
G C AmRaised in the woods so he knew every tree
D7 GKil't him a "bar" when he was only three.
G C G D D7 GDavey, Davey Crockett, king of the wild frontier.
G C GIn 1813 the Creeks uprose
G A DAdding redskin arrows to the country's woes.
G C AmNow, Indian fighting is something he knows,
D7 Gso he shoulders his rifle and off he goes.
G C G D D7 GDavey, Davey Crockett, the man who don't know fear.
G C GOff through the woods he's a marchin' along.
G A DMaking up yarns and singing a song.
G C AmItchy for fightin' and rightin' the wrong,
D7 Ghe's ringy as a bar and twice as strong!
G C G D D7 GDavey, Davey Crockett, the buckskin buccaneer.
G C GHe fought single handed through the Indian war,
G A DTill' the Creeks were whipped and peace was in store,
G C AmWhile he was handling this risky chore,
D7 Gmade hi'self a legend forever more.
G C G D D7 GDavey, Davey Crockett, king of the wild frontier.
G C GHe gave his work and he gave his hand,
G A Dthat his Indian friends could keep their land.
G C AmAnd the rest of his life he took the stand,
D7 Gthat justice was due every redskin band.
G C G D D7 GDavey, Davey Crockett, holdin' his promise dear.
G C GHe went off to Congress and served a spell,
G A Dfixin' up the government and laws as well,
G C Amhe took over Washington so I hear tell
D7 G and patched up the crack in the Liberty bell.
G C G D D7 GDavey, Davey Crockett, seeing his duty clear.
G C GWhen he come home, his politickin' done,
G A Dwhy the westward march had just begun,
G C Amso he packed his gear and his trusty gun
D7 Gand lit out a grinnin' to follow the sun.
G C G D D7 GDavey, Davey Crockett, a leadin' the pioneer.
G C GHe heard of Houston and Austin and so,
G A Dto the Texas plains he just had to go,
G C Amtheir freedom was fightin' another foe
D7 Gand they needed him at the Alamo!
G C G D D7 GDavey, Davey Crockett, the man who don't know fear.
G C GHis land is biggest and his land is best.
G A DFrom the grassy plains to the mountain's crest.
G C AmHe's ahead of us all meeting the test,
D7 Gfollowing his legend to the West
G C G D D7 GDavey, Davey Crockett, king of the wild frontier.
