THE MOONSHINER

Chorus:

Well [G]I’m a rambler, I’m a gambler. I’m a [C]long ways from [Am]home

And [D7]if you don’t like me well leave me [G]alone

I’ll eat when I’m hungry and I’ll [C]drink when I’m [Am]dry

And the [D7]moonshine don’t kill me I’ll live till I [G]die

Well I’ve been a moonshiner for many’s a year
I’ve spent all me money on whiskey and beer
I’ll go to some hollow and I’ll set up my still
And I’ll make you a gallon for a ten shilling bill(chorus)

I’ll go to some hollow in this country
Ten gallons of wash I can go on a spree
No women to follow, the world is all mine
I love none so well as I love the moonshine(chorus)

Oh moonshine, dear moonshine, oh how I love thee
You killed me old father, but dare you try me
Oh bless all moonshiners and bless all moonshine
Their breath smells as sweet as the dew on the vine(chorus)
