I’ve been a moonshiner for seventeen long years
I spent all my money on whiskey and beer
I go to some hollow and set up my still
And if whiskey don’t kill me, then I don’t know what will

I go to some barroom and drink with my friends
Where woman cannot follow and see what I spend
God bless them pretty women, how I wish they was mine
Their breath is as sweet as, the dew on the vine

Let me eat when I’m hungry, let me drink when I’m dry
Give me dollars when I’m hard up, religion when I die
The whole world’s a bottle, and life is but a dram
When a bottle gets empty, it sure ain’t worth a damn
