  • Well I got friends from Colorado
    I got friends from Tennessee
    So I got something in a bottle
    And I got something from a seed
    Since you said you didn't love me
    Since hung me out to dry
    I've been drunk up in the Smokies
    On a Rocky Mountain high

    Made the plans, booked the day, spent the money too
    Nothing sweet 'bout a paid-for honeymoon
    Million dollar view to see but she won't
    Since "I do" turned right into "I don't"
    So I'm chillin' in a cabin at the tip-top
    Lookin' at a holler full of hemlocks
    No cars, no bars or my phone
    And just when you think I'm all alone

    I got friends from Colorado
    I got friends from Tennessee
    So I got something in a bottle
    And I got something from a seed
    Since you said you didn't love me
    Since hung me out to dry
    I've been drunk up in the Smokies
    On a Rocky Mountain high

    These Appalachian folks
    Probably think I'm losing it in these trees
    Yeah, but they don't know
    What kind of company I keep, yeah

    Well I got friends from Colorado
    I got friends from Tennessee
    So I got something in a bottle
    And I got something from a seed
    Since you said you didn't love me
    Since hung me out to dry
    I've been drunk up in the Smokies
    On a Rocky Mountain high
    I've been drunk up in the Smokies
    On a Rocky Mountain high

    Jack's still on the hill 'cause Jill ran away
    But Jill's got nothin' on Jack and Jane Writer/s: Drew Faron Green, Hunter Michael Phelps, Michael Wilson Hardy
