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 sit at my still

And drink with my friends
Where the women can't follow 
And see what I spend

God bless them pretty women
I wish they was mine
Their breath is as sweet
The dew on the vine

Let me eat when I am hungry
Let me drink when I am dry 
A dollar when I am 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 damn
