moonshiner lyrics – punch brothers

“moonshiner”

i’ve been a moonshiner for seventeen long years
i spend all of my money on whiskey and beer
i’ll go down to some hollow and set up my still
i’ll sell you a gallon for a ten dollar bill.

i go to some bar room and drink with my friends
where the women can’t follow and see what i spend
god bless that pretty women, i wish she was mine
cuase her breath is as sweet as the dew on the vine.

let me eat when i’m hungry, let me drink when i’m dry
a dollar when i’m hard up, religion when i die
the whole world’s a bottle and life’s but a dram
when the bottle gets empty it sure ain’t worth a d*mn.

i’ve been a moonshiner for seventeen long years
i spend all of my money on whiskey and beer
i’ll go down to some hollow and set up my still
and if whiskey dont kill me then i don’t know what will.
