White Lightning

Credits: 
J. P. Richardson (Big Bopper)

Well in North Carolina way back in the hills
Me and my old pappy and he had him a still
He brewed white lightnin till the sun went down
Then he'd fill up a jug and he'd pass it around
Mighty mighty pleasin my pappy's corn squeezin (whew white lightnin)

Well the G men T men revenuers too
Searching for the place where he made his brew
They were looking tryin' to book him but my pappy kept on cookin'
(Whew 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
Light has started flashin thunder started crashing (whew white lightnin)

Well the G men T men revenuers too
Searching for the place where he made his brew
They were looking tryin' to book him but my pappy kept on cookin'
(Whew white lightnin)

Well a city slicker came and he said I'm tough
I think I want to taste that powerful stuff
He took one slug and he drank it right down
I heard him moanin' as he hit the ground
Mighty mighty pleasin you're pappy's corn squeezing (whew white lightnin)

Well the G men T men revenuers too
Searching for the place where he made his brew
They were looking tryin' to book him but my pappy kept on cookin'
(Whew white lightnin)

Written by the Big Bopper. this song was originally recorded by George Jones and was his first #1 single in 1959.
