Verse 1:
G CI've been a moonshiner
GFor seventeen long years
D EmI've spent all my money
DOn whiskey and beer
D7 GI'll go to some hollow
G/E DAnd set up my still
Bm CAnd I'll sell you a gallon
Am D7/D D7/C D7/B D7/AFor a ten dollar bill
Then I'll go to a bar room And drink with my friends Where the women can't follow And see what I spend God bless them pretty women I wish one was mine Because their breath is as sweet As the dew on the vine Give me food when I'm hungry Give me drink when I'm dry A dollar when I'm hard up Religion when I die (and only then) If this whole world's a bottle And life's but a dram When the bottle is empty It sure ain't worth a damn I've been a moonshiner For seventeen long years I've spent all my money On whiskey and beer I'll go to some hollow And set up my still If the whiskey don't kill me
Am DI don't know what will
