SOA Lyrics

 

"Moonshiner"

Traditional


Verse:
Iíve been a moonshiner for many a year,
Iíve spent all my money on whiskey and beer.
Iíll go to some hollow, Iíll set up my still,
And Iíll make you a gallon for a ten-shilling bill.

Chorus:
I'm a Rambler and a gambler' I'm a long way from home;
And if you don't like me then leave me alone.
I'll eat when I'm hungry, I'll drink when I'm dry,
And if moonshine don't kill me, I'll live till I die.
Verse:
Iíll go to some hollow in this coun-tery,
Ten gallons of wash, I can go on a spree.
No woman to follow, the world is all mine;
And I love none so well as I love my moonshine.
Well its cornbread when I'm hungry, corn likker when I'm dry
And its greenbacks when I'm hard up and religion when I die
The world's but a bottle and life's but a dram
When the bottle is empty, it ain't worth a damn
