"Rocky Mountain"

  1. Rocky mountain, rocky mountain, rocky mountain high,
When you're on that rocky mountain, hang your head and cry.


Do, do, do, do, Do remember me.
Do, do, do, do, Do remember me.

Stormy ocean, stormy ocean, stormy ocean wide,
When you're on that stormy ocean, there's no place to hide.
  3. Sunny valley, sunny valley, sunny valley low,
When you're in that sunny valley sing it soft and low.
