Recorded by Jay Farrar (Uncle Tupelo)

Intro.:  | (Am) (F) | (C)  | (C)  | (G) ---

I (Am)am (F) a moon-(C)shiner for seventeen long (G)years
And I (Am)spent all (F) my (C)money on whiskey and (G)beer

And I go (F)to some (G)hollow and (C)set up my (F)still
If (Am)whiskey (F) don't (C)kill me, Lord, I don't know what (G)will

Inst.:  | (Am) (F) | (C)  | (C)  | (G)  |

And I go (Am)to (F) some (C)barroom to drink with my (G)friends
Where the (Am)women (F) they can't (C)follow to see what I (G) spend

God bless (F)them pretty (G)women, I (C)wish that they was (F)mine
With (Am)breath (F) as sweet (C)as the dew on the (G)vine

Inst.:  | (Am) (F) | (C)  | (C)  | (G)  |  x 2

Let me (Am)eat (F) when I'm (C)hungry, let me drink when I'm (G)dry
Two (Am)dollars (F) when I'm (C)hard up, religion when I (G)die

The whole (F)world is a (G)bottle and (C)life is but a (F)dram
When the (Am)bottle (F) gets (C)empty, Lord, it sure ain't worth a (G)damn
