I LIKE MOUNTAIN MUSIC (Frank Weldon / James Cavanaugh) Hoosier Hot Shots - 1936 Roy Acuff - 1956 Also recorded by: Don Reno; Jimmy Martin; Jim Hendricks; Ray Budzilek. When the Sun goes down and the chores are through There ain't nothin' better I like to do Than sit around the house when the folks ain't home And listen to the music on a gramophone I like mountain music, good old mountain music, Played by a real hillbilly band Give me rural rhythm, let me sway right with 'em I think the melodies are grand I have heard Hawaiians play in the land of the wicki-wacki But I must say you can't beat "Turkey in the straw", by cracky! I like mountain music, good old mountain music Played by a real hillbilly band To the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee Came a hula girl from over the sea With sparkling eyes, lips so red She looked at me and then she said I like mountain music, good old mountain music, Played by a real hillbilly band Give me rural rhythm, let me sway right with 'em I think the melodies are grand I have heard Hawaiians play in the land of the wicki-wacki But I must say you can't beat "Turkey in the straw", by cracky! I like mountain music, good old mountain music Played by a real hillbilly band (Instrumental break) Her flashy clothes are really neat Flowing hair and dancing feet When she does the hula, she can drive you wild Swingin' and swayin' in the mountain style I like mountain music, good old mountain music, Played by a real hillbilly band Give me rural rhythm, let me sway right with 'em I think the melodies are grand I have heard Hawaiians play in the land of the wicki-wacki But I must say you can't beat "Turkey in the straw", by cracky! I like mountain music, good old mountain music Played by a real hillbilly band (Instrumental break) While the fiddles play and the guitars ring The people laugh, you can hear them sing This hula girl can swing and sway You can hear her shout to the break of day I like mountain music, good old mountain music, Played by a real hillbilly band Give me rural rhythm, let me sway right with 'em I think the melodies are grand I have heard Hawaiians play in the land of the wicki-wacki But I must say you can't beat "Turkey in the straw", by cracky! I like mountain music, good old mountain music Played by a real hillbilly band (Contributed by Mel - May 2008)
