Davy Crockett Stew

Do you know all about Davy Crockett and his stew making capabilities? You don’t?? Well, time to be informed:

Born on a mountain top in Tennessee
Greenest state in the land of the free
Raised in the woods so he knew how to cook

Stirrin’ or’ a f’ar an’ feedn’ his foes
He carries him a pot where ere he goes
Davy, Davy Crockett, the stew makin’ buccaneer
