Well I was sent to a place in North Carolin'
To check up on a moonshine still
But when I got there to my suprise
I could see a little light on the hill
Well the fire was a'glowing and really I was knowing I was really hot on the track
But in D.C. they said it couldnt' be
But I'll be the one to bring em back

Cause I'm a revenooer man
I'm a revenooer man
I got a badge in my pocket
And a gun on my hip
Damn moonshiners
Better never make a slip
Cause I'm a revenooer man

YEAH I'LL GET'EM IF I CAN

Well the moon was shining bright
As I looked down the river
I noticed on the side of the hill
I can see a red light that was glowing bright
I knew it had to be a still
Well the people down the road said it wasn't far
But I better know someone
Cause' when the moonshiners know I carry a star
I'll bet my bottom dollar I'll have em on the run

Cause I'm a revenooer man
Yeah I'm a revenooer man
I got a badge in my pocket
And a gun on my hip
Damn moonshiners better never make a slip
Cause I'm a revenooer man

YEAH I'LL GET'EM IF I CAN

Well when I got there the woods were bare
Must've knew I was on my way
Well I heard the branches shatter
As they started to scatter
I heard two or three of them say
It's the revenooer man
Yeah it's revenooer man
He's got a big 45 with loads to fill
Dragging and shagging to another hill
It's the revenooer man
And he'll get us if he can

YEAH THE REVENOOER MAN
AND I'LL GET'EM IF I CAN
