Moonshine Whiskey - Outta be a crime
When I start drinkin' - I'm bound to lose my mind
Oh Brother got to get it a few more time

Now what's that smokin' - Yonder cross the hill
Looks like our secret hideaway - We had so many years
John Law done come and run us way from here

Chorus
------
He burned down the liquor store
He burned down the liquor store
John Law burned down the liquor store
John Law burned down the liquor store
Well, that bootleg whiskey - Where we gonna go?

Workin' in the fields - All the hot long day
Looks like our secret hideaway - Gone by the way
And now I feel I'm drinkin'my own tears

He turned water to whiskey - That's what the preacher say
Lord I need a miracle - To get me thru the day
Muddy water come and wash my blues away

Chorus
------

John law didn't mind us - Having a little fun
Cause when we made money - He would get him some
The joint will rock un - til the morning comes

But when the money got low - He took me off to jail
Cauee I drink all my corn liquor - And had no more to sell
I ain't had no one - To get me out on bail - oh no

Chorus
------

Good morning judge - What may be my fine
When the judge taste my whiskey - He didn't give me no time
He said could you make me some more of your moonshine - oh yeah

Chorus
