Rocky Top:
Rocky Top
By Boudleaux and Felice Bryant

Wish that I was on old Rocky Top,
Down in the Tennessee hills.
Ain’t no smoggy smoke on Rocky Top,
Ain’t no telephone bills.
Once I had a girl on Rocky Top,
Half bear other half cat.
Wild as a mink but sweet as soda pop,
I still dream about that.
Rocky Top, you’ll always be,
Home sweet home to me,
Good ol’ Rocky Top
Rocky Top Tennessee.
Rocky Top Tennessee.
Once two strangers climbed ol’ Rocky Top,
Lookin’ for a moonshine still.
Strangers ain’t come down from Rocky Top,
Reckon they never will.
Corn won’t grow at all on Rocky Top,
Dirt’s too rocky by far.
That’s why all the folks on Rocky Top,
Get their corn from a jar.

I’ve had years of cramped-up city life,
Trapped like a duck in a pen.
All I know is it’s a pity life
Can’t be simple again.

Felice Bryant died Tuesday in Gatlinburg: Knoxville News obituary.

Going to Rocky Top this weekend. Will do the Saturday morning update tomorrow but then probably no postings for a week. Got to get away from this cramped-up city life.

In library blog news
Jessica Baumgart has a Weblog. It's a baby blog so far, but the news librarian who works for Harvard's news service is getting the best of advice, from Harvard's Dave Winer, and considering the work Jessica has done in the past (she's Webmaster of the News Division of SLA), this will be a doozy.

And: Christian Crumlish is at the Jazz Fest. Nice photos.
