Revenooer Man

This song is by George Jones and appears on the album The Novelty Side of George Jones (1963).

This song has been covered by Alan Jackson under the title "Revenooer Man".
Well, I was sent to a place in North Carolina
To check up on a moonshine still
When I got there to my suprise
I could see a little light on the hill
Well, the fire was glowing and really I was knowing
I was really hot on the track
But in D.C. they said it couldnt' be
But I'll be the one to bring 'em back.

'Cause I'm a revenooer man
Hey, I'm a revenooer man
I got a badge in my pocket
And a gun on my hip
And them moonshiners
Better never make a slip
'Cause I'm a revenooer man
Yeah, I'll get 'em if I can.

Well the moon was shining bright
As I looked down the river
I noticed on the side of the hill
I can see a red light that was glowing bright
I knew it had to be a still
Well, the people down the road said it wasn't far
But I better know someone
'Cause when the moonshiners know I carry a star
I'll bet my bottom dollar I'll have 'em on the run.

'Cause I'm a revenooer man
Yeah, I'm a revenooer man
I got a badge in my pocket
And a gun on my hip
Them moonshiners better never make a slip
'Cause I'm a revenooer man
Yeah, I'll get 'em if I can.

Well when I got back the woods were bare
Must've knew I was on my way
Well, I heard the branches shatter
And they started to scatter
I heard two or three of them say
It's the revenooer man
It's revenooer man
He's got a big 45 and loads to fill
Dragging and shagging to another hill
It's the revenooer man
And he'll get us if he can.

Yeah, I'm the revenooer man
And I'll get 'em if I can...
