#1.
Bb
In North Carolina, way back in the hills,

there lived my Pappy and he had him a still.
   Eb
He brewed white lightning till the sun was down,
              Bb
and then he'd fill him a jug, and pass it around.
F                           Eb
Mighty, mighty pleasin', my Pappy's corn squeezin'..
      Bb
whew, white Lightning.

CHORUS:
Eb
G-men, T-men, Revenurers too,
Bb
searchin' for the place where he made his brew.
          F
They were lookin', tryin' to book him,
       Eb                     Bb              
But my Pappy kept on cookin'..white Lightning.


INTERLUDE: Bb Eb Bb F Eb Bb

#2.
  Bb
I asked my Pappy why he called his brew..

white lightning, instead of mountain dew.
  Eb
I took one sip and then I knew,
      Bb
as my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue.
F                           Eb
Lightnin' started flashin', thunder started clashin'
           Bb
wsssshhhh..white Lightning.

CHORUS:
Eb
G-men, T-men, Revenurers too,
Bb
searchin' for the place where he made his brew.
          F
They were lookin', tryin' to book him,
       Eb                               Bb
But my Pappy kept on cookin'..wsssshhh..white Lightning.


INTERLUDE: Bb Eb Bb F Eb Bb

#3.
  Bb
A city slicker came, and said, "I'm tough..
  
I think I wanna taste that powerful stuff.'
   Eb
He took one slug and he drank it right down,
      Bb
and I heard him a-moanin' as he hit the ground..
 F                              Eb
'Mighty, mighty, pleasin', your Pappy's corn squeezin'..
            Bb
wssssshhhh..White Lightning.

CHORUS:
Eb
G-men, T-men, Revenurers too,
Bb
searchin' for the place where he made his brew.
          F
They were lookin', tryin' to book him,
       Eb                             Bb
But my Pappy kept on cookin'..wsssshh..white Lightning.

You know, I can't frigging win. This tab got 5 star ratings
and great comments on other sites.
Whoever gave it 3 stars wasn't even kind enough to say
why the poor rating..or to leave their name. Sad, ain't it? KK.
