To the tune of Rocky Top

Wish that I was in ole Rocky Hill,

Down on the D&R Canal,

Ain’t no polluters on the towpath

Ain’t nothing bad about that

Once I rode a bike through Rocky Hill

It was such a breeze

No red lights and no speed humps

Ain’t that something else

Rocky Hill, you’ll always be,

Home sweet home to me.

Good ole Rocky Hill

Once two cyclists climbed Route 518

Looking for Washington’s house

Cyclists ain’t come down from that site

Reckon they never will

George’s house has been gone a long while

They moved it long ago

That’s why all the folks in Rocky Hill

Keep on asking why

Rocky Hill, you’ll always be,

Home sweet home to me.

Good ole Rocky Hill

I’ve had years of biking up hills

Never thought 518 would end

All I know is there’s just

One too many

One too many a bend

Rocky Hill, you’ll always be,

Home sweet home to me.

Good ole Rocky Hill
