Lyrics for 'Sourwood Mountain'

Chicken crowin' on Sourwood Mountain,
Hey de-ing dang diddle alley day.
So many pretty girls I can't count em,
Hey de-ing dang diddle alley day.

My true love she lives in Letcher,
Hey de-ing dang diddle alley day.
She won't come and I won't fetch her,
Hey de-ing dang diddle alley day.
