Lee O'Daniel's Hillbilly Boys: I like mountain music Good old mountain music Played by a real hillbilly band I like bread and biscuits Big, white fluffy biscuits My dear old Ma just makes 'em grand We like to sing and play And try to make folks happy We hope you'll say (What?) "Please pass the biscuits, Pappy" I like mountain music Good old mountain music Played by the real hillbilly band (Instrumental Break) I like mountain music Good old mountain music Played by a real hillbilly band I like bread and biscuits Big, white fluffy biscuits My dear old Ma just makes 'em grand We like to sing and play And try to make folks happy We hope you'll say (What?) "Please pass the biscuits, Pappy" I like mountain music Good old mountain music Played by the real hillbilly band ******************** As recorded by ROY ACUFF & The Smokey Mountain Boys: 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 (Instrumental Break) While the fiddles play, 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 ******************** Comedy section as used by Billy Cotton, Henry Hall and others in their recordings: Elmer (What?) Better sound your 'A' Your darned old fiddle's out of tune, I'd say Ezra (Here!) Let's hear your tone Why don't you play us somethin' on your old trombone Hiram (Here!) Get your gittar fixed Ev'rytime you play you get your chords all mixed Okay, Zeke (Well?) Throw away that chaw You can't chaw tobaccy and your jew's harp, too Now, boys, see, we all in key We gotta put some pep into this orchestry We aim to get a job on the radio soon But we won't get one if we ain't in tune One, two, three and four Come on now, boys, let's try once more (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2008)
