American Studies Department Rutgers—The State University Ballad of Davy Crockett, Complete Lyrics Born on a mountain top 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! In eighteen thirteen the Creeks uprose, addin' redskin arrows to the country's woes Now, Injun fightin' is somethin' he knows, so he shoulders his rifle an' off he goes Davy, Davy Crockett, the man who don't know fear! Off through the woods he's a marchin' along, makin' up yarns an' a singin' a song Itchin' fer fightin' an' rightin' a wrong, he's ringy as a b'ar an' twic't as strong Davy, Davy Crockett, the buckskin buccaneer! Andy Jackson is our gen'ral's name, his reg'lar soldiers we'll put to shame Them redskin varmints us Volunteers'll tame, 'cause we got the guns with the sure-fire aim Davy, Davy Crockett, the champion of us all! Headed back to war from the ol' home place, but Red Stick was leadin' a merry chase Fightin' an' burnin' at a devil's pace, south to the swamps on the Florida Trace
