1. The Moonshiner

From the recording The Moonshiner


I'm a Rambler I'm a Gambler
I'm a Long way from home
And if you don't like me, well leave me alone
I'll eat when I'm hungry, I'll drink when I'm dry
If the moonshine don't kill me, I'll live 'till I die

I've been a moonshiner for many a yaer
I've spent all me money on whiskey and beer
I'll go to some hollow, I'll set up my still
And I'll make you a gallon for a ten shilling bill

I'll go to some hollow in this country
Ten gallons of wash, I can go on a spree
No woman to callow, the world is all mine
I love them so well as I love the monshine

Oh moonshine, dear moonshine oh how I love thee
You killed me own father, dare you try me
Now bless all moonshiners, and bless all moonshine
Their breath is as sweet as the dew on the vine
