The Lyrics

Ode to Snuffy Smith.
The other night dear, the dog was barking
I heard a rustling out by the still
I got my shotgun, scared off that poacher
And some lead, he got his fill

You are my moonshine, illegal moonshine
I'll shoot the thieves that dare to trespass
They'll never tell how much I am making
They can't run without an ass

Oh, those corn squeezin's, can really get you
Sometimes I can't see when I am pissed
Though me and my gun are both quite loaded
You'll find I almost never miss

You are my moonshine, my potent moonshine
I will protect you forevermore
Of course this land here, I could just sell it
And go buy a liquor store

Nice job. Used to love that cartoon - what was his wife's name? Ma? "Uh uh uh great balls of fire . . ." - they don't make cartoons like they used to.

Well done Rick. I voted earlier, just forgot to comment, I think.
Great line:

Though me and my gun are both quite loaded.

If votes were time I'd make this one 5PM - Miller time!

Rick, it was written by Jimmie Davis, a country singer who served three (non-consecutive) terms as Governor of Louisiana, and lived to be 101 years old.
