Brothers Osborne – White Lightning lyrics

Up in North Carolina way back in the hills
Lived my old pappy and he had him a still
He brewed white lightning till the sun went down
He fill him a jug and he pass it around
Mighty mighty pleasing pappy's corn squeezing (whew Lord white lightning)

Well the G men T men revenoers too
Searching for the place where he made his brew
They were looking kinda book him but my pappy kept on cooking
(Uh huh white lightning)
[ mandolin ]
Well I asked my old pappy why he called his brew
White lightning stead of mountain dew
I took a little sip and right away I knew
That my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue
Lightning started flashing sun started blushing (uh huh white lightning)

Well the G men T men...
[ banjo ]
Well a city slicker came and he said I'm tough
I think I'd like to taste that powerful stuff
Took one slug and he drank it right down
I heard him moanin' as he hit the ground
Mighty mighty pleasing my pappy's corn squeezing (whew white lightning)

Well the G men T men...
