Lyrics

Troop and Duke and Famous Amos
Lulubelle and Flop
Preacher, Black and Bud
All buried on the mountain top
Their hunting days are over
But I swear I hear them still
On a star lit southern night
Up there in the Freedom Hills

It's a coon dog cemetery
On the Alabama line
When midnight comes around
They have a big ole time
Barking and a baying
Underneath the Long Leaf Pines
In a coon dog cemetery
On the Alabama line

Night champions, Timberchoppers
Blood like kings and queens
Those who came from common stock
But every bit as keen
On the trail through raging rivers
Every briar patch and plot
They earned their final resting place
In this hallowed spot

It's a coon dog cemetery
On the Alabama line
When midnight comes around
They have a big ole time
Barking and a baying
Underneath the Long Leaf Pines
In a coon dog cemetery
On the Alabama line

English Blueticks, Treeing Walkers
Redbones, Black and Tans
Loyal to a fault
Best friend to any man
Three hundred of the finest dogs
Laid into the ground
But I tell you friend they come alive
When the full moon comes around

It's a coon dog cemetery
On the Alabama line
When midnight comes around
They have a big ole time
Barking and a baying
Underneath the Long Leaf Pines
In a coon dog cemetery
On the Alabama line
