I like mountain music,

good ole mountain music,

played by a real hillbilly band.

Give me rural rhythem,

let me sway right with them,

I think their melody is grand.

lol--that's all I remember

(fiddle and banjo intro of turkey in the straw)

I like mountain music

good ol mountain music

played by a real hillbillie band

Jimmy rules the rythem

let me sway right with em'

I think the melody is grand

I heard hawaiian played

from the land of wicky wacky

I must say you can't beat turkey

in the straw by crackey

I like mountain music

good ol mountain music

played by a real hillbillie band

(instrumental banjo guitar mandolin fiddle round house)

I like mountain music

good ol mountain music

played by a real hillbillie band

Jimmy rules the rythem

let me sway right with em'

I think the melody is grand

I heard hawaiian played

from the land of wicky wacky

I must say you can't beat turkey

in the straw by crackey

I like mountain music

good ol mountain music

played by a real hillbillie band

(banjo and fiddle finish with turkey in the straw and

shave and a haircut two bits)

(Jimmy Rules is a refrance to Jimmy Martin

and his bluegrass band)

Wow, this is great. But I still have one more question. Who sings the darn thing?

You got to love google! Here are some pages that I found about "I Like Mountain Music". The first is a list of the different people who have released that song. None of them look old enough to be the original.

However, there appears to be a short or cartoon with the same name which probably has the original song on it. At lease the date is right.

I'm not positive, but I think the line "Jimmy rules the rhythm" is wrong. I think the true line is: "Gimme rural rhythm".

I recall the intro to the song:

When the sun goes down and the chores are through

There ain't nothin better that I like to do

Than to sit around the house when the folks ain't home

And listen to the music on the gramaphone.

I like mountain music good ol mountain music

Played by a real hillbilly band.

etc etc etc

The old 78 recording I have of the tune was played and sung by "The Hoosier Hotshots", sometime back in the 1930s.
