WHITE LIGHTNIN' (J.P. Richardson) George Jones Well in North Carolina, way back in the hills Me and my old pappy had a hand in a still We brewed white lightnin' 'til the sun went down Then he'd fill him a jug and he'd pass it around Mighty, mighty pleasin, pappy's corn squeezin' Whshhhoooh . . . white lightnin' (Chorus) Well the "G" men "T" men revenuers, too Searchin' for the place where he made his brew They were looking, tryin to book him, but my pappy kept a-cookin' Whshhhoooh . . . white lightnin' Well I asked my old pappy why he called his brew White lightnin' 'stead of mountain dew I took a little sip and right away I knew As my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue Mighty, mighty pleasin, pappy's corn squeezin' Shhhoooh . . . white lightnin' (Repeat chorus) Well a city slicker came and he said "I'm tough" I think I wanna taste that powerful stuff He took one s-s-sip and drank it right down And I heard him a moaning as he hit the ground Mighty, mighty pleasin, pappy's corn squeezin' Whshhhoooh . . . white lightnin' (Repeat chorus) (Contributed by Nancy - October 2003)
