White Lightening:J.P. Richardson (The Big
Bopper.) ( He wrote and recorded the song in 1958.
George Jones had a #1 Country hit with it in 1959.)

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

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

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

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

white lightning, instead of mountain dew.
  F
I took one sip and then I knew,
      C
as my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue.
G                           F
Mighty, mighty pleasin', my Pappy's corn squeezin'..
        C               
called..white Lightning.

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

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

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

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