The Lyrics

Kentucky Moonshine

You're goin' to church and I'm invited
You think my soul will get excited
But I was raised on Kentucky Moonshine

I was raised on Kentucky Moonshine
Sour mash beneath my feet
Runnin' it through stills in secret
Sellin' it across the creek

You're goin' to church and I'm invited
You think my soul will get excited
But I was raised on Kentucky Moonshine

I was raised on Kentucky Moonshine
I'm happy with the simple things
A fast hot rod, a field of corn
And the money white lightnin' brings

I love you, please believe me
I wouldn't want you to ever leave me
But I was raised on Kentucky Moonshine

There's just somethin' about the moonshine
That makes each day a joy to see
The night time brings quite a feeling
When the cops can't catch up with me

I love you, please believe me
I wouldn't want you to ever leave me
But I was raised on Kentucky Moonshine

Yes you're goin' to church and I'm invited
You think my soul will get excited
But I was raised on Kentucky Moonshine
Mm-hmm, I was raised on Kentucky Moonshine
Oh-oh, I was raised on Kentucky Moonshine
Mm-hmm, I was raised on Kentucky Moonshine


Moonshine On My Shoulders

Moonshine on my shoulders makes my shirt wet,
Moonshine, hope the cops don't see it in my trunk,
Moonshine in the water kills the fishies,
Moonshine almost always makes me drunk.

If I had a gift that I could give you,
I'd give to you a bottle of Kentucky Straight.
If I had a song that I could sing for you,
I'd sing a song to make you want a date!

Moonshine on my shoulders my shirt wet,
Moonshine, hope the cops don't see it in my trunk,
Moonshine in the water kills the fishies,
Moonshine almost always makes me drunk.

If I had advice that I could give to you,
I'd tell you to lighten up and live.
If I had a wish that I could wish for you,
I'd wish for all the love that you can give.

Moonshine on my shoulders my shirt wet,
Moonshine, hope the cops don't see it in my trunk,
Moonshine in the water kills the fishies,
Moonshine almost always makes me drunk.

Moonshine almost all the time.



Good Day Moonshine

Good day moonshine, good day moonshine, good day moonshine

I start to laugh, when the bottle's out
I'm sniffin' something I can laugh about
I feel good, and my head is light
I'm havin' fun and it's a wild night

Good day moonshine, good day moonshine, good day moonshine

We take a walk, we're out on the town
Can't feel my feet when they touch the ground

Good day moonshine, good day moonshine, good day moonshine

Then we'd lie beneath the shady tree
I see the cops, and they're after me
She feels good, she knows she's looking fine
I'm dumb enough to think she's really mine.

Good day moonshine, good day moonshine, good day moonshine
Good day moonshine, good day moonshine, good day moonshine
Good day moonshine, good day moonshine, good day moonshine

And I was raised on Kentucky moonshine!
