Burl Ives Big Rock Candy Mountain Lyrics

Oh, the buzzin' of the bees and the cigarette trees
The soda water fountain where the lemonade springs
and the bluebird sings in that Big Rock Candy Mountain

On a summer's day in the month of May
A burly b__ come ahiking
Down a shady lane through the sugar cane
He was looking for his liking

As he strolled along he sang a song
Of the land of milk and honey
Where a b__ can stay for many a day
And he won't need any money


In the Big Rock Candy Mountain
The cops have wooden legs
The bulldogs all have rubber teeth
And the hens lay soft-boiled eggs

The farmers' trees are full of fruit
The barns are full of hay
I want to go where there ain't no snow
Where the sleet don't fall and the wind don't blow
In that Big Rock Candy Mountain

Chorus ...
