Trad., arr. by the Stillwater Hobos

lyrics

I've been a moonshiner for seventeen long years
And I've spent all my money on whiskey and beer
I go to some hollow, and I set up my still
If whiskey don't kill me, then I don't know what will.

I go to some bar room, just to drink with my friends
Where the women cannot follow for to see what I spend
God bless them pretty women, how I wish they was mine
Their breath is as sweet as the dew on the vine.

Let me eat when I'm hungry, give me drink when I'm dry
Two dollars when I'm hard up, and religion when I die
The whole world is a bottle, and life is but a dram
When the bottle goes empty, it sure ain't worth a damn.

The whole world is a bottle, and life is but a dram
When the bottle goes empty, it sure ain't worth a damn.
