Moonshiner

lyrics

I've been a moonshiner for seventeen long years.
I spent all my money on whiskey and beers.
And I'll go to some hollow and set up my still.
And I'll sell you a gallon for a ten dollar bill.

Then I'll go to some bar room and drink with my friends,
Someplace where the women can't see what I spend.
God bless them pretty women, I wish one were mine,
Cause Their breath is as sweet as the dew on the vine,

Give me food when I am hungry and drink when I am dry;
a dollar when I'm hard up, religion when I die.
If the whole world's a bottle and life's but a dram,
when the bottle is empty, it sure ain't worth a damn.

I've been a moonshiner for seventeen long years.
I spent all my money on whiskey and beers.
And I'll go to some hollow and set up my still;
and if the whiskey don't kill me, I don't know what will.
