Story Behind the Song

old traditional

Lyrics

I am a moonshiner
for seventeen long years
and I spend all my money
on whiskey and beer
and I go to some hollow
and set my still
if whiskey don't kill me
lord I don't know what will

Well I go to some barroom
to drink with my friends
where the women won't follow
to see what I spend
God bless them, pretty women
I wish they was mine
with breath as sweet as
the dew on the vine

let me eat when I am hungry
let me drink when I'm dry
two dollars when I am hard up
and religion when I die
the whole world is a bottle
and life is but a dram
and when the bottle, it gets empty
life ain't worth a damn
