​Moonshine

This song is by Lindisfarne and appears on the album Roll On, Ruby (1973).

Give me moonshine
Got to have that old moonshine
Give me moonshine
Got to have that old moonshine

This is the life and times
Of a man who almost made it
Ace, king to ten in hearts
The perfect hand, he almost played it

Give me moonshine
Got to have that old moonshine

This the plan, the lived-in dream
This the scheme within a scheme
With eyes that ran and legs that faltered
The morning found that old corn jar empty

Give me moonshine
Got to have that old moonshine

Give me moonshine
Got to have that old moonshine
Give me moonshine
Got to have that old moonshine

And at his still, a new batch cooking
One hundred proof, the perfect blend
Three barrels gone and he's still looking
Because he said, because it's just because

Give me moonshine
Got to have that old moonshine
Give me moonshine
Got to have that old moonshine
Give me moonshine
Got to have that old moonshine
