  • Well in North Carolina, way back in the hills
    Me and my old pappy had a hand in a still
    We brewed white lightnin' 'til the sun went down
    Then he'd fill him a jug and he'd pass it around
    Mighty, mighty pleasin', pappy's corn squeezin'
    Whshhhoooh... white lightning

    [Chorus]
    Well the "G" men, "T" men, revenuers, too
    Searchin' for the place where he made his brew
    They were looking, tryin to book him,
    But my pappy kept cookin'
    Whshhhoooh... white lightning

    Well I asked my old pappy why he called his brew
    White lightning 'stead of mountain dew
    I took a little sip and right away I knew
    As my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue
    Lightning started flashin' and thunder started crashin'
    Shhhoooh... white lightnin'

    [Chorus]
    Well the "G" men, "T" men, revenuers, too
    Searchin' for the place where he made his brew
    They were looking, tryin to book him,
    But my pappy kept a-cookin'
    Whshhhoooh . . . white lightning

    Well a city slicker came and he said "I'm tough"
    I think I want to taste that powerful stuff
    He took one g-g-glug and drank it right down
    And I heard him a moaning as he hit the ground
    Mighty, mighty pleasin', pappy's corn squeezin'
    Whshhhoooh... white lightning

    [Chorus]
    Well the "G" men, "T" men, revenuers, too
    Searchin' for the place where he made his brew
    They were looking, tryin' to book him,
    but my pappy kept cookin'
    Whshhhoooh... white lightning...
