I’ve been a moonshiner
For seventeen long years
I’ve spent all my money
On whiskey and beer
I go to some hollow
And set up my still
And if whiskey don’t kill me
I don’t know what will

I go to some bar room
And drink with my friends
Where the women can’t follow
To see what I spent
God bless them pretty women
I wish they was mine
Their breath is as sweet as
The dew on the vine

Let me eat when I’m hungry
Let me drink when I’m dry
Lend me dollars when I’m hard up
Religion when I die
Cause the whole world’s a bottle
And life is but a dram
When the bottle gets empty
It sure ain’t worth a damn
