White Lightning
Recorded by George Jones
Written by J.P. Richardson
Well in North Carolina way back in the hills
There lived by old pappy and he had him a still
He brewed white lightnin' till the sun went down
Then he filled him a jug and he passed it around
D7                        C        
Mighty mighty pleasing my pappy's
Corn squeezings   ooh white lightnin'
Well the G men T men revenuers too
Looking for the place where he made his brew
          D7                             C
They were looking trying to book him but my
Pappy kept on cooking   ooh white lighnin'
Well I asked my pappy what he called his brew
He said white lightnin' stead of mountain dew
I took one sip and right away I knew
Cause my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue
D7                         C               
Lightnin' started flashing thunder started
Crashing   ooh white lightnin' 
repeat #2
Well a city slicker came and he said I'm tough
I think I wanna taste that powerful stuff
He took one sip and drank it right down
And I heard him a moaning as he hit the ground
D7                          C       
Mighty mighty pleasing your pappy's
Corn squeezings   ooh white lightnin'
