Memphis Minnie – Moonshine lyrics

I've got to leave this town, I've got to go before the sun goes down
I've got to leave this town, I've got to go before the sun goes down
'Cause I done got tired of these coppers running me around

I stayed in jail last night and all last night before
I stayed in jail last night and all last night before
I would have been there now if my daddy hadn't sprung the do'

I stay in so much trouble, that's why I've got to go
I stay in so much trouble, that's why I've got to go
But when I get out this time, I won't sell moonshine no more

I done packed my trunk and done shipped it on down the road
I done packed my trunk and done shipped it on down the road
Now I won't be bothered with these big bad bulls no more

Just keep me a-moving going from door to door
Just keep me a-moving going from door to door
I done made up in my mind not to sell moonshine no more

(spoken: Yeah
