(The Dillards)

Dooley was a good old man, he lived below the mill
Dooley had two daughters and a forty gallon still
One gal watched the boiler, the other watched the spout
And mama poured the bottles when old Dooley fetched them out

cho: Dooley, [slippin'/steppin'] up a holler
Dooley, trying to make a dollar
Dooley, give me a swaller,
And I'll pay you back some day

The revenuers came for him, sniffing/slipping through the woods
Dooley kept behind them all and never lost his goods
Dooley was a trader, when into town he'd come
Sugar by bushle and molasses by the ton

I remember very well the day old Dooley died
The woman folk looked sorry and the men stood 'round and cried
Now Dooley's on the mountain, he lies there all alone
They put a jug beside him and a barrel for his stone

As heard on the TV ‘Andy Griffith' movie
