Big Rock Candy Mountain


On a summer day in the month of May
A burly bum came hiking
Down a shady lane through the sugar cane
He was looking for his liking
As he roamed along, he sang a song
Of the land of milk and honey
Where a bum can stay for many a day
And he won't need any money
Oh, the buzzin?of the bees in the cool shade trees
Near the crystal water fountain
At the lemonade springs
Where the bluebird sings
On the big rock candy mountain
Oh, a farmer and his son, they were on the run
To the hayfield they were bounding
Said the bum to the son, "Why don't you come
To that big rock candy mountain?"
So the very next day they hiked away
The mileposts they kept counting
But they never arrived at the lemonade tide
On the big rock candy mountain
