The Moonshiner
 
Traditional
 
I’m a rambler, I’m a gambler, I’m a long way from home  
and if you don’t like me then leave me alone. 
I’ll eat when I’m hungry, I’ll drink when I’m dry
and if the Moonshine don’t kill me I’ll live ’til I die.
 
I’ve been a Moonshiner for many’s a year
and I’ve spent all my money on whiskey and beer. 
I’ll go to some hollow and set up my still and I’ll make
you a gallon for a two dollar bill.
 
I’ll go to some hollow in this country,
ten gallons of wash and I’ll go on a spree.
No woman to follow and the world is all mine,
I love none so well as I love the Moonshine.
 
Moonshine, dear Moonshine, oh how I love thee.  
You killed my poor father but dare you try me. 
Bless all the Moonshiners and bless all the Moonshine,
its breath smells as sweet as the dew on the vine.
