The Lyrics


I keep a keen ear open in the woods
My copper still, is for the common good
But I am con-stantly misunderstood
Deep in the pines
I'm makin' shine

I find it very very easy to get stoned
Testing moonshine in this danger zone
What else to do? I'm brewing all alone
I don't like wine
I'm makin' shine

As sure as night is dark and hides me well
Deep in these woods is where I like to dwell
I keep my rifle filled with extra shells
Don't cross my line
I'm makin' shine

They have no way to keep me in this state
I'm dodging barr-icades that they create
My souped up ford is full of jugs and crates
Crossed two state lines
I'm makin' shine

I keep a scanner for the county roads
I get ten thousand bucks for ev'ry load
If they shoot at me I might explode
I'll risk the time
I'm makin' shine

Fives for lyrics ten times better than the original song. Could Johnny Cash have ever matched that?

Excellent stuff, snake! I think John would've approved. 55

Very Johnny Cash-ish.

I'll drink to this fine stuff. Seems it is 55.5 volume %. Would you like to have a sip of My Home-Made Wine?

I like this one. For the record, if Johhny Cash were still alive, he would have turned 75 today. :( I still love his music.
