Pack of whiskey on my back,
and the sheriff's on my track
I'm gonna make it through this world if I can

I take a walk to go my bail,
brother took off to the county jail
You better make it through the world if you can

If you can
If you can
You better make it through the world if you can

If you want to have to leave home,
you just stick with a bottle of corn
You got to make it through the world if you can

You may think they're doin' you wrong,
but they'll send you to the county farm
You better make it through the world if you can

If you can
If you can
You better make it through the world if you can

When you go out for a load,
the sheriff will stop you on the road
You have to make it through this world if you can

It's a real surprising thing,
that to hear those boys will drink
You better make it through the world if you can

If you can
If you can
You better make it through the world if you can

...they sure got to hear about liquor

Ever since this state went dry,
the bootleggers have their shine
They gonna keep out of the way of the jail if they can

If they can
If they can
They gonna keep out of the way of the jail if they can
