Well in North Carolina way back in the hills
Lived my ol' pappy and he had him a still
He brewed white lightning till the sun went down
Then he'd fill him a jug and he'd pass it around
Mighty mighty pleasing pappy's corn squezing
Shhhhhhh "WHITE LIGHTNING"

chours

Well the g-men t-men revenures to
Searchin' for the place were he made his brew
They were lookin' tryn' to book him
Ooooo "WHITE LIGHTNING"

I asked my ol' pappy why he called his brew
White lightning stead' of mountain dew
I took one sip and right away i knew as
My eyes bugged out and my face turned blue
Lightning started flashin' thunder started crashing
Oooooooo "WHITE LIGHTNING"

chours

Well the g-men t-men revanures too searching
For the place were he made his brew
They were lookin' tryn' too book him
Ooooooo "WHITE LIGHTNING"

Well a city slicker came and he said
Im tough i think i wanna taste that
Powerfull stuff he took one swift slug
And he drank it right down and i
Heard him moaning as he hit the ground
Mighty mighty pleasin'your pappys corn squezin'
Ooooooo "WHITE LIGHTNING"

chours

Well the g-men t-men revanuers too
Searchin' for the place were he made his brew
They were lookin' tryin' to book him but my
Pappy kept a cookin' ooooooo "WHITE LIGHTNING"

    I lost every iota of my hearing (along with a lot of my memory) to Meningitis, when I was ten years old (I'm 52, now), so I don't remember ever hearing George Jones sing. However, because of tinnitis (a squeaking "sound," caused by nerve damage) I have "heard" him, while watching television program, where he is singing, with close captioning.

    When he sang, "Oh, Come Angel Band," with Vestal Goodman, I felt as if I could hear a low bass voice and a booming lady's voice. Whether or not that was right, I don't care - I liked the song and thought it "sounded" well - at least to someone, who has heard nothing for 42 years.
