Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I've been a moonshiner
For seventeen long years
I've spent all my money
On whiskey and beer
Verse 2
I go to some hollow
And sit at my still
And if whiskey don't kill me
Then I don't know what will
Verse 3
I go to some barroom
And drink with my friends
Where the women can't follow
And see what I spend
Verse 4
God bless them pretty women
I wish they was mine
Their breath is as sweet
The dew on the vine
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
The whole world's a bottle
And life's but a dram
When the bottle gets empty
It sure ain't worth a damn
