                             Moonshiner by Cat Power

Chan's take on the classic folk song, from 'Moon Pix' (1998). Again, as with a 
great many of her songs, just two chords arpeggiated (picked). Not going to bother 
tabbing this, but if you play around with the chords, you should be able to figure 
out the picking pattern (note that she plays some of the open strings as well). I 
figured out how to play this by ear in about 2 minutes, which, coming from me, 
means it's fairly simple. I believe she bends the B string while picking A minor 
before alternating to the E minor chord.

Tuning: Standard

Am          Em
I've been a moonshiner

Am            Em
For seventeen long years

Am             Em
I spend all my money on whiskey and beer

Am      Em
I go to some hollow

Am                  Em
And set up my holy, holy still

Am                 Em
If drinking do not kill me

Am                Em
Then I don't know what will

Am           Em
I go to some bar room 

Am             Em
And drink with my friends

Am                         Em
See if women and men would come to follow

Am            Em
To see what I might spend

Am                      Em
God bless them handsome men

Am              Em
I wish they was mine

Am              Em
Their breath is as sweet as

Am                   Em
The dew on the holy, holy vine

You're already in hell

You're already in hell

                Am            Em        
I wish we could go to hell

Am                   Em
When the bottle gets empty,

Am                        Em
Then life ain't worth the drown
