Daniel Boone (Larry W. Jones 01/09/2007) (song#4304)

Back when the country was very new
There came a man folks knew as Boone
He wore mocassins and a coonskin hat
Folks just called hin Dan, Daniel Boone

A man of big adventure the legends say
Rebecca Bryan made him glance her way
But the Cumberland Gap was calling soon
To this famed explorer Dan, Daniel Boone

Trails that Daniel blazed are still there
Not many since have matched his fame
And those few that have are well aware
Of the Wilderness Road of Daniel's name

In the legends of the Indians of the East
A name still lives, though long deceased
A man whose hat was from a wilderness coon
Folks just called him Dan, Daniel Boone
