copper kettle lyrics – joan baez

get you a copper kettle
get you a copper coil
cover with new made corn mash
and never more you’ll toil

[chorus:]
you just lay there by the juniper
while the moon is bright
watch them jugs a-fillin
in the pale moonlight

build your fires of hickory
hickory or ash or oak
don’t use no green or rotten wood
they’ll catch you by the smoke

[chorus]

my daddy he made whiskey
my granddaddy did too
we ain’t paid no whiskey tax
since seventeen ninety two

[chorus]
