White Lightning
Well, in North Carolina, way back in the hills
Me and my old pappy had a hand in a still
We brewed white lightnin' till the sun went down
Then he'd fill him a jug and he'd pass it around
Mighty, mighty pleasin, pappy's corn squeezin'
Whshhhoooh... white lightnin'.

Well, the G men, T men, revenuers, too
Searchin' for the place where he made his brew
They were looking, tryin' to book him,
But my pappy kept a-cookin'
Whshhhoooh... white lightnin'.

Well, I asked my old pappy why he called his brew
White lightnin' 'stead of mountain dew
I took a little sip and right away I knew
As my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue
Lightnin' started flashin' and thunder started crashin'
Shhhoooh... white lightnin'.

Well, the G men, T men, revenuers, too
Searchin' for the place where he made his brew
They were looking, tryin' to book him,
But my pappy kept a-cookin'
Whshhhoooh... white lightnin'.

Well, a city slicker came and he said I'm tough
I think I wanna taste that powerful stuff
He took one s-slug and drank it right down
And I heard him a moaning as he hit the ground
Mighty, mighty pleasin, pappy's corn squeezin'
Whshhhoooh... white lightnin'.

Well, the G men, T men, revenuers, too
Searchin' for the place where he made his brew
They were looking, tryin' to book him,
But my pappy kept a-cookin'
Whshhhoooh... white lightnin'...
