I'm a-makin' whiskey
On the Rattlesnake Shelf
I'm a-gonna drink some
And the rest I'll sell
Me and my baby
Are comin' into town
I'm makin' whiskey
Going to bring some down
I gotta thirty feet of copper
Running through the stream
Bang it like a hammer
When the water hits the steam
Stoke it like a steamboat
Comin' down the line
I'm makin' whiskey
Do you want to make time
I'm makin' whiskey
On the Rattlesnake Shelf
I'm a-gonna drink some
And the rest I'll sell
Me and my baby, comin' into town
I'm makin' whiskey
Gonna bring some down
I'm a-workin' in the morning
'Fore the Revenue Man
Come a-lookin' around
With a paper in his hand
Stick in your finger
And it tastes so fine
It'll make you go crazy
Stick it too many times
I'm makin' whiskey
On the Rattlesnake Shelf
I'm a-gonna drink some
And the rest I'll sell
Me and my baby, comin' into town
I'm makin' whiskey
Going to bring some down
I'm makin' whiskey
Going to bring some down
