Clancy Brothers – Moonshiner lyrics

I've been a moonshiner for many a year,
I spent all me money on whiskey and beer.
I'll go to some hollow and I set up me still
And i'll make you a gallon fer a ten shillin bill.

I'm a rambler I'm a gambler
I'm a long ways from home.
And if you don't like me well leave me alone.
I'll eat when I'm hungry and I'll drink when I'm dry,
And if moonshine don't kill me I'll live till I die.

I'll go to some hollow in this count-er-ey,
Ten gallons of wash I can go on a spree.
No women to follow the world is all mine,
And I love none so well as I love the moonshine.

I'm a rambler I'm a gambler
I'm a long ways from home.
And if you don't like me well leave me alone.
I'll eat when I'm hungry and I'll drink when I'm dry,
And if moonshine don't kill me I'll live till I die.

O Moonshine dear Moonshine oh how I love thee,
Ya kill me ol' father but ar' ya try me.
Oh bless all moonshiners and bless all moonshine,
Oh it's breath smells as sweet as the dew on the vine

I'm a rambler I'm a gambler
I'm a long ways from home.
And if you don't like me well leave me alone.
I'll eat when I'm hungry and I'll drink when I'm dry,
And if moonshine don't kill me I'll live till I die.
