Shakin' Stevens Revenue Man Lyrics

Last updated: 06/30/2012 11:00:00 AM

Well I was sent to a place
Down in North Carolina
To check up on a moonshine still
But when I got there to my surprise
I could see a little light on the hill
Well the fire was a-glowin'
Already I was know
That I was really hot on the track
But the NVC said it couldn't be me
Yeah I'll be the one to bring it back

Cause I'm a revenue man, yes a revenue man
I got a badge on my pocket and a gun on my hip
I find moonshiners and I never make a slip
I'm a revenue man, I'll get ‘em if I can

Well the moon was shinin' tonight
When I looked down the river
I noticed on the side of the hill
I could see a red light
Glowin' really bright
I knew it had to be a still
Yeah people down the road
Said it wasn't far
But you oughta know someone
Cause when the moonshiners knew
That I carry a star
I bet my bottom dollar
That I'll have ‘em on the run

Cause I'm a revenue man, yes a revenue man
I got a badge on my pocket and a gun on my hip
I find moonshiners and I never make a slip
I'm a revenue man, I'll get ‘em if I can

Well the moon was shinin' tonight
When I looked down the river
I noticed on the side of the hill
I could see a red light
Glowin' really bright
I knew it had to be a still
Yeah people down the road
Said it wasn't far
But you oughta know someone
Cause when the moonshiners knew
That I carry a star
I bet my bottom dollar
That I'll have ‘em on the run

Cause I'm a revenue man, yes a revenue man
I got a badge on my pocket and a gun on my hip
I find moonshiners and I never make a slip
I'm a revenue man, I'll get ‘em if I can
Yeah
