F                         F      F
Born on a mountain top in Tennessee,
F                       G          G
Greenest state in the land of the free.
F                         F          Dm
Raised in the woods so he knew every tree
G7                                  F
Kil't him a "bar" when he was only three.
F      F      F        G           G7    F
Davey, Davey Crockett, king of the wild frontier.

F              F      F
In 1813 the Creeks uprose
F                       G          G
Adding redskin arrows to the country's woes.
F                        F          Dm
Now, Indian fighting is something he knows,
G7                                  F
so he shoulders his rifle and off he goes.
F      F      F        G            G7    F
Davey, Davey Crockett, the man who don't know fear.
F                        F      F
Off through the woods he's a marchin' along.
F                    G         G
Making up yarns and singing a song.
F                        F          Dm
Itchy for fightin' and rightin' the wrong,
G7                                  F
he's ringy as a bar and twice as strong!
F      F      F        G        G7    F
Davey, Davey Crockett, the buckskin buccaneer.

F                                F      F
He fought single handed through the Indian war,
F                                 G            G
Till' the Creeks were whipped and peace was in store,
  F                        F     Dm
While he was handling this risky chore,
G7                            F
made hi'self a legend forever more.
F      F      F        G           G7       F
Davey, Davey Crockett, king of the wild frontier.

F                             F    F
He gave his work and he gave his hand,
F                                 G       G
that his Indian friends could keep their land.
F                            F        Dm
And the rest of his life he took the stand,
G7                                  F
that justice was due every redskin band.
F      F      F        G           G7       F
Davey, Davey Crockett, holdin' his promise dear.
F                             F    F
He went off to Congress and served a spell,
F                              G      G
fixin' up the government and laws as well,
F                          F      Dm
he took over Washington so I hear tell
G7                                 F   
and patched up the crack in the Liberty bell.
F      F      F        G           G7    F
Davey, Davey Crockett, seeing his duty clear.

F                          F        F
When he come home, his politickin' done, 
F                           G      G
why the westward march had just begun,
  F                           F      Dm
so he packed his gear and his trusty gun 
G7                                 F
and lit out a grinnin' to follow the sun.
F      F      F        G         G7   F
Davey, Davey Crockett, a leadin' the pioneer.

F                           F       F
He heard of Houston and Austin and so,
F                            G     G
to the Texas plains he just had to go, 
F                          F     Dm
their freedom was fightin' another foe
G7                            F
and they needed him at the Alamo!
F      F      F        G           G7       F
Davey, Davey Crockett, the man who don't know fear.

F                           F       F
His land is biggest and his land is best.
F                                  G       G
From the grassy plains to the mountain's crest.
F                          F     Dm
He's ahead of us all meeting the test,
G7                            F
following his legend to the West
F      F      F        G           G7       F
Davey, Davey Crockett, king of the wild frontier.
