G                         C      G
Born on a mountain top in Tennessee,
G                       A          D
Greenest state in the land of the free.
G                         C          Am
Raised in the woods so he knew every tree
D7                                  G
Kil't him a "bar" when he was only three.
G      C      G        D           D7    G
Davey, Davey Crockett, king of the wild frontier.

G              C      G
In 1813 the Creeks uprose
G                       A          D
Adding redskin arrows to the country's woes.
G                        C          Am
Now, Indian fighting is something he knows,
D7                                  G
so he shoulders his rifle and off he goes.
G      C      G        D            D7    G
Davey, Davey Crockett, the man who don't know fear.
G                        C      G
Off through the woods he's a marchin' along.
G                    A         D
Making up yarns and singing a song.
G                        C          Am
Itchy for fightin' and rightin' the wrong,
D7                                  G
he's ringy as a bar and twice as strong!
G      C      G        D        D7    G
Davey, Davey Crockett, the buckskin buccaneer.

G                                C      G
He fought single handed through the Indian war,
G                                 A            D
Till' the Creeks were whipped and peace was in store,
  G                        C     Am
While he was handling this risky chore,
D7                            G
made hi'self a legend forever more.
G      C      G        D           D7       G
Davey, Davey Crockett, king of the wild frontier.

G                             C    G
He gave his work and he gave his hand,
G                                 A       D
that his Indian friends could keep their land.
G                            C        Am
And the rest of his life he took the stand,
D7                                  G
that justice was due every redskin band.
G      C      G        D           D7       G
Davey, Davey Crockett, holdin' his promise dear.
G                             C    G
He went off to Congress and served a spell,
G                              A      D
fixin' up the government and laws as well,
G                          C      Am
he took over Washington so I hear tell
D7                                 G   
and patched up the crack in the Liberty bell.
G      C      G        D           D7    G
Davey, Davey Crockett, seeing his duty clear.

G                          C        G
When he come home, his politickin' done, 
G                           A      D
why the westward march had just begun,
  G                           C      Am
so he packed his gear and his trusty gun 
D7                                 G
and lit out a grinnin' to follow the sun.
G      C      G        D         D7   G
Davey, Davey Crockett, a leadin' the pioneer.

G                           C       G
He heard of Houston and Austin and so,
G                            A     D
to the Texas plains he just had to go, 
G                          C     Am
their freedom was fightin' another foe
D7                            G
and they needed him at the Alamo!
G      C      G        D           D7       G
Davey, Davey Crockett, the man who don't know fear.

G                           C       G
His land is biggest and his land is best.
G                                  A       D
From the grassy plains to the mountain's crest.
G                          C     Am
He's ahead of us all meeting the test,
D7                            G
following his legend to the West
G      C      G        D           D7       G
Davey, Davey Crockett, king of the wild frontier.
