Tiger Lyr Req: The Moonshiner (Daw Henson) (13) Lyr Add: THE MOONSHINER (Clancy Brothers) 16 Jun 03

Here's the Clancy's version.

The Moonshiner Clancy Brothers

I've been a moonshiner for many a year.
I spent all my money on whiskey and beer.
I'll go to some hollow and I set up my still,
And I'll make you a gallon for a ten-shillin' bill.
    CHORUS (each stanza)
    I'm a rambler, I'm a gambler,
    I'm a long ways from home,
    And if you don't like me,
    Well, leave me alone.
    I'll eat when I'm hungry,
    And I drink when I'm dry,
    And if moonshine don't kill me,
    I'll live 'til I die.

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,
And I love none so well as I love the moonshine.

Oh, moonshine, dear moonshine, Oh, how I love thee.
You killed my old father, but you are good by me.
Oh, bless all moonshiners and bless all moonshine,
Oh, their breath smells as sweet as the dew on the vine.
