"Rocky Top Y'all"

“Rocky Top Y’all”

Birmingham radio legend, Courtney Haden, produced this parody song for The Paul Finebaum Show several years ago.

In his production, Haden impersonated Alistair Cooke, the host of the Public Broadcasting Service’s Masterpiece Theater.

Haden narrates his version of a “Masterpiece Classic”, “The Meaning Of Rocky Top” to a backdrop of Lynn Anderson’s hit “Rocky Top” – The University of Tennessee’s adopted fight song.

“Rocky Top” was written by married songwriting duo Boudleaux Bryant (1920–1987) and Felice Bryant (1925–2003) in 1967.

I wonder if they have any relatives in Morro Bottom, Arkansas?

From Wikipedia.
With its good-natured regional references to a carefree lifestyle, the singing of “Rocky Top” by Tennessee college students and alumni at sports venues such as Neyland Stadium is well established. House of Bryant has granted the University of Tennessee a perpetual license to play the song as much and as often as success on the field dictates. Longtime director W. J. Julian created a marching band arrangement that was first played at Tennessee’s October 21, 1972, game against the University of Alabama.

The Girls of Rocky Top

Lyrics to “Rocky Top”
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, sweet as soda pop,
I still dream about that.Rocky top, you’ll always be
Home sweet home to me.
Good ole rocky top,
Rocky top Tennessee, rocky top Tennessee.

Once two strangers climbed on rocky top,
Lookin’ for a moonshine still.
Strangers ain’t come back from rocky top,
Guess 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,
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,
Rocky top Tennessee, rocky top Tennessee

Rocky top Tennessee, rocky top Tennessee.
Yeah rocky top Tennessee eee eee eee.

Herschel Walker

Herschel Walker

By Finebaum Fan.

Herschel Walker  joined Paul Finebaum today and talked about some of college football’s hottest topics.

The 1982 Heisman Trophy winner gave very candid answers to questions about  suspended University of Georgia running back, Todd Gurley, and not yet to be suspended Florida State quarterback, Jameis Winston.

Like Gurley, Walker played running back for the University of Georgia, where he was a three-time All-American and winner of the Maxwell Award.

“I know Jameis Winston…  is a young man who needs some guidance.  He’s a young man who needs someone to sit down and talk to him.” – Herschel Walker

We’ll pick up the conversation where it began after an aborted attempt to speak with Finebaum due to a bad phone connection:

Lane Kiffin (l) and Daniel Tosh (r)

Lane Kiffin (l) and Daniel Tosh (r)

By FinebaumFan.

It is said that everyone has a doppelganger – someone who looks exactly the same as another person.

In the case of University of Alabama offensive coordinator, Lane Kiffin,  Daniel Tosh fits the bill.

Tosh is a comedian, actor, and writer who hosts the Comedy Central television show – “Tosh.0.

This week, Tosh took advantage of his striking resemblance to Kiffin to reveal his impression of a Lane Kiffin “call in” television show.

Along with his stunning “wife”, played by UFC ring girl Chrissy Blair, “Kiffin” fielded calls from fans of the Alabama Crimson Tide, the Auburn Tigers, the USC Trojans, and the Tennessee Volunteers.

Watch as “Lane” takes calls from these unhappy fans on “Kiffin’s Krimson Korner”.

Nick Saban At Kent State

Nick Saban At Kent State

By Finebaum Fan.

In his weekly appearance on “Hey Coach”, Alabama Coach Nick Saban revealed that he had experienced the same injury that Alabama running back, Kenyan Drake, sustained in the October 4th game against The University of Mississippi.

Drake suffered a horrible leg injury in the second quarter against Ole Miss. During a tangled pileup, his left ankle twisted violently and he shouted so loudly that his voice was audible on CBS’ broadcast.

Saban played defensive back for the Kent State University football team under coach Don James.

Said Saban, “When I was a player in college, I got the SAME injury as he (Kenyan Drake) had…”

Here’s the audio with an update on Drake’s condition:

“Phyllis From Mulga” took exception to ESPN’s Colin Cowherd’s comments regarding her beloved Alabama Crimson Tide and Head Coach, Nick Saban.

This morning on his show, “In The Herd”, Cowherd made this comment on air immediately after Paul Finebaum had been interviewed:

Phyllis called into the Finebaum show today unaware of Cowherd’s comments.

It didn’t take long before Phyllis began her second scathing of Cowherd on the Finebaum Show.

Her first call was a classic and quickly went viral on social media.

Mississippi Territory

The Mississippi Territory

“Oh yeah, I laid in bed two days after that…”- “Randy In Mobile”

What we learned on Finebaum today:

On March 1, 1817, President James Monroe signed an act admitting Mississippi to The Union.  The western part of the Mississippi Territory became a state, and the eastern half became the Alabama Territory. In December of 1817, Mississippi became a state. Alabama followed in 1819.
