White Lightnin'
(Written by S. Wooley)

Well in North Carolina, way back in the hills
Lived my old pappy and he had him a still
He brewed white lightnin' 'til the sun went down
Then he'd fill him a jug and he'd pass it around
Mighty, mighty pleasin, pappy's corn squeezin'
Whshhhoooh. .. White lightnin'

[Chorus:]
Well the "G" men "T" men revenuers, too
Searchin' for the place where he made his brew
They were looking, tryin to book him,
But my pappy kept a-cookin'
Whshhhoooh. .. White lightnin'

Well I asked my old pappy why he called his brew
White lightnin' 'stead of mountain dew
I took a little sip and right away I knew
As my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue
Thunder started flashin', lightnin' started clashin'...
Whshhhoooh. .. White lightnin'

(Repeat chorus)

Well a city slicker came and he said "I'm tough"
I think I wanna taste that powerful stuff
He took one slug and drank it on down
And I heard him a moanin' as he hit the ground
Thunder started flashin', lightnin started clashin'
Mmmmm.... White lightnin'

(repeat chorus)
