SEC- Tennessee Volunteers

So Miss Sarah sent this over FOREVER ago, and for some reason I didn't see if for some reason. She is talking about the Tennessee Volunteers. 

Hey everyone! I'm Sarah from Venus Trapped in Mars. There are few things in this world that get me more excited than college Tennessee football season. The smell of smokey dogs on tailgate grills, mimosas for noon time kickoffs, snagging 50 yard-line seats last minute from a scalper, losing your voice from screaming as your running back tip toes through the end zone to win the game late in the fourth quarter... ok well I haven't had the luxury of seeing that last one in a few years.
Which leads me to the point of this post.
Although winning has not been at the top of our priority list in the past few years, this year, fingers crossed, should change all of that! We have a new coach and since the season hasn't started, and the losing depression hasn't set in, I can still make statements like, "This is our year"!! 
My favorite thing about the University of Tennessee is screaming, chanting and singing with the Pride of the Southland marching band the best fight song in all the land....
I bet if you asked everyone in the SEC what the most annoying fight song is, they would say Rocky Top. 
They say annoying, I say heavenly music to my ears. 
As a student, you are required to know every word to Rocky Top. There is a test. Am I kidding, well, I'll let you decide. Today, I'm here to share the lyrics to Rocky Top along with some of my favorite pictures and memories from the University of Tennessee baby! I said it's great to be a Tennessee Vol! 
Rocky Top -- as sung and celebrated by Venus Trapped in Mars
Wish that I was on ole Rocky Top,
 down in the  Tennessee hills.
Ain't no smoggy smoke on Rocky Top
Ain't no telephone Bills
Once there was a girl on Rocky Top
Half bear the other half cat.
Wild as a mink, but sweet as soda pop
I still dream about that
Rocky top you'll always be, 
home sweet home to me.
Good ole Rocky Top (Whoo!)
Rocky Top Tennessee, Rocky Top Tennessee
Once two starngers climbed ole Rocky Top
Lookin for a moonshine still
Strangers ain't come down from Rocky Top
Reckon they never will
Corn won't grow at all on Rocky Top,
Dirt's too rocky by far.
That's why all the folks on Rocky Top 
Get their corn from a jar.
Rocky top, you'll always be
Home sweet home to me.
Good ole Rocky top (WHOO!)
Rocky top Tennessee, Rocky top Tennessee
Now I've had years of cramped up city life,
 Trapped like a duck in a pen.
Now all I know is it's a pity life 
Can't be simple again
Rocky top you'll always be Home sweet home to me! Good ole Rocky Top (WHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!) Rocky Top Tennessee, Rocky Top Tennessee Rocky Top Tennesseeee eeeee eeeeeeeeeee eeeeee!! GO BIG ORANGE! TWITTER  FACEBOOK Pinterest Instagram Image Map
