Intro: *5 *1 *1



Well in northern Carolina way back in the hills

lived my old pappy and he had him a still

He brewed white lightnin' til the sun went down

P *2

Then he'd fill him a jug and he'd pass it around


Mighty mighty pleasin' pappy's corn squeezin'

P *1>

Wiiisshhhh Oooow White Lightnin'!



Well the t-man, the g-man, revendoers too,

Were searchin' for the place were he made his brew

They were lookin' tryin' to book him

But my pappy kept on cookin'

P *1>

Wwiiissshhhh Oooow White Lightnin'!

SOLO: *1 *1 *1 *1 *4 *4 *1 *1 *1 *1

Verse 2 (played the same as the first)

Well I asked my ol' pappy why he called his brew

white Lightnin' 'stead of mountain dew

I took a little sip and right away I knew

As my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue

Mighty Mighty pleasin' pappy's corn squeazin'

Wiiiiissshhhh Ooooow White Lightnin'

Chorus (Exactly the same as 1st chorus)

Verse 3:

Well a city slicker came and he said I'm tough

I think I wanna tasted that powerful stuff

He took one shlug and drank it on down

And I heard him a moanin' as he hit the ground

Mighty mighty pleasin' Pappy's home squeazin'

Wiiisssshhhh Ooooow White Lightnin'


Outro: *1> (Fade)
