Lyrics

Well in North-a Carolina Way back in the hills Me and my old pappy And he had him a still He brewed white lightning 'Til the sun went down And then he'd fill him a jug And he'd pass it around Mighty mighty pleasin' Pappy's corn squeezin's Shhhhheeeeewwwwwwwww White lightning Well the G-men, T-men, revenuers too Searching for the place where he made his brew They were lookin' Tryin' to book him But my pappy kept on cookin'

Shhhheeeeewwwwwwww Oh, white lightning Well I asked my ol' pappy why he called his brew White lightning instead of Mountain Dew I took a lil slip and right away I knew As my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue Lightning started flashing Thunder started clashing Shheeewwwwww White Lightning Well the G-men, T-men, revenuers too Searching for the place where he made his brew They were lookin' Tryin' to book him But my pappy kept on cookin' Shhhheeeeewwwwwwww White lightning Well a city slicker came and he said 'I'm tough. I think I wanna taste that powerful stuff.' He took one g-glug and drank it right down And I heard him a moanin' as he hit the ground Mighty mighty pleasin' Pappy's corn squeezin's Shhhhheeeeewwwwwwwww White lightning Well the G-men, T-men, revenuers too Searching for the place where he made his brew They were lookin' Tryin' to book him But my pappy kept on cookin' Shhhheeeeewwwwwwww White lightning
