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.
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
