Moonshine In The Mountains - Lyrics by Calvert Robert


Lyrics
You can call me a hog-drunken swinebecause I like drinking winebut I'm really not drunk all the time
I was sober when I made up this rhyme.
There's Moonshine in the mountainsand it's going so cheapso grab yourself a bucketa still's water runs deep.
There's an injun who married a squaw'cause her feet were size twenty four
I'll tell you what he marridged her forif you help me get up from this floor.
There's Moonshine in the mountainsand it's going so cheapso grab yourself a bucketa still's water runs deep.
Well the reason this redskin got wedto his freak-footed bride like I saidhas completely gone out of my headwon't you please pass that bottle instead.
There's Moonshine in the mountainsand it's going so cheapso grab yourself a bucketa still's water runs deep.I remember it much better nowit had something to do with a cowshe could milk it with one foot and ploughwith the other ... no that ain't right somehow
There's Moonshine in the mountainsand it's going so cheapso grab yourself a bucketa still's water runs deep.I recall that they both came to townshe was wearing a Buffalo gownand the old man when he saw my frownsaid she's great when she treads them grapes down
There's Moonshine in the mountainsand it's going so cheapso grab yourself a bucketa still's water runs deep.
