I laid down took a little nap
Forty one miles from the Cumberland Gap

Cumberland Gap, Cumberland Gap
Forty one miles from the Cumberland Gap

I got a gal in Cumberland Gap,
She's got a baby calls me pap.

Daniel Boone on Pinnacle Rock
He killed injuns with an old flintlock.
Cumberland Gap's a mighty fine place
Can't get water to wash your face.

Cumberland Gap with It's cliffs and rocks
home of the panther bear and fox.

Me and my wife and my wifes pap,
Danced our way home to Cumberland Gap.
