Cat Power – Moonshiner lyrics

I've been a moonshiner
For seventeen long years
I spent all my money on whisky and beer

I go to some hollow
And set up my holy holy still
If drinking do not kill me
Then I don't know what will

I go to some bar room
And drink with my friends
If women and men would come to follow
To see what I might spend
God bless them handsome men
I wish they was mine

They're breath is as sweet as
The dew on the holy holy vine

You're already in hell, you're already in hell
I wish we could go to hell

When the bottle gets empty
Then life ain't worth the drown
