  • Song Lyrics:
    One evening as the sun went down and the jungle fire was burning
    Down the track came a hobo hiking and he said, "Boys I'm not turning
    I'm headin' for a land that's far away beside the crystal fountains
    So come with me we'll go and see the Big Rock Candy Mountain

    In the Big Rock Candy Mountain, there's a land that's fair and bright
    Where the handouts grow on bushes and you sleep out every night
    Where the boxcars are all empty and the sun shines every day
    On the birds and the bees and the cigarette trees
    Where the lemonade springs where the bluebird sings
    In the Big Rock Candy Mountain

    In the Big Rock Candy Mountain, all the cops have wooden legs
    And the bulldogs all have rubber teeth and the hens lay hard boiled eggs
    The farmer's trees are full of fruit and the barns are full of hay
    Oh, I'm bound to go where there ain't no snow
    Where the rain don't fall and the wind don't blow
    In the Big Rock Candy Mountain

    In the Big Rock Candy Mountain, you never change your socks
    And the little streams of alcohol come a-trickling down the rocks
    The brakemen have to tip their hats and the railroad bulls are blind
    There's a lake of stew and of whiskey too
    You can paddle all around 'em in a big canoe
    In the Big Rock Candy Mountain

    I'll see you all this coming fall in the Big Rock Candy Mountain
    (Stavro Arrgolus)
