I've been a moonshiner,
For seventeen long years,
And I've spent all my money,
On whiskey and beer,
I go to some hollow,
And I sit at my still
And if whiskey dont kill me,
Then I dont know what will,

I go to some bar room,
And I drink with my friends,
Where the women cant follow,
And see what I spend,
God bless them pretty women,
I wish they was mine,
Their breath is as sweet as,
The dew on the vine,

Let me eat when I am hungry,
Let me drink when I am dry,
Give me a dollar when I am hard up,
Religion when I die,
The whole world's a bottle,
And life's but a dram,
When the bottle gets empty,
I know it aint worth a damn.
