Big Rock Candy Mountain", first recorded by Harry McClintock in 1928, is a folk song about a hobo's idea of paradise, a modern version of the medieval concept of Cockaigne. It is a place where "hens lay soft boiled eggs" and there are "cigarette trees. McClintock claimed to have written the song in 1895, based on tales from his youth hoboing through the United States, but some believe that at least aspects of the song have existed for far longer. It is catalogued as Roud Folk Song Index No. 6696.

In the Big Rock Candy Mountain The cops have wooden legs The bulldogs all have rubber teeth And the hens lay soft-boiled eggs The farmers' trees are full of fruit The barns are full of hay I want to go where there ain't no snow Where the sleet don't fall and the wind don't blow In that Big Rock.

Also during check in the lady at the desk had to keep stopping to ring up ice cream, gas etc while we had to keep waiting. She also couldn't answer some of the questions we had including if the resort does AAA discount (we never got an answer) Also the store seems to have random hours because we tried to come a few times and found them closed.

Like Honaloochie and Sukarita, the Big Rock Candy Mountain is - or rather was - a mythical place, but as often happens, life imitated art, in this case the name has been given to some hills near Marysvale, Utah, and a couple of other places.
