Lyrics

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
