A lesser-known but great song written by Johnny Cash of a classic country folk song. His version is much different from the original, but it still is a very good song.

LYRICS:

Turpentine, and dandelion wine. I've turned the corner and I'm doin' fine. Shootin' at the birds on the telephone line, pickin' 'em off with this gun o' mine. Got a fire in my belly and a fire in my head, goin' higher and higher, 'till I'm dead. Sister Sue is short and stout. She didn't grow up, she grew out. Mama says she's plain but she's just bein' kind, Papa thinks she's purty but he's almost blind. Don't let her out much 'cept at night, but I don't care, 'cause I'm alright.

=Chorus=
Oh the sun shines bright, on my old, Kentucky home. Young folks roll, on the floor. Oh the sun shines bright, on my old, Kentucky home, I keep them hard times away. from my door.

Brother Jean is big and mean, and he don't have much to say. He had a little woman who he'd whoop each day, but now she's gone away. Got drunk last night, kicked Mama down the stairs, but I'm alright, 'cause I don't care.

=Chorus=

Turpentine and dandelion wine I've turned the corner and I'm doin' fine. Shootin' at the birds on the telephone line, pickin' 'em off with this gun o' mine. Got a fire in my belly and a fire in my head goin' higher and higher, 'till I'm dead.

=Chorus=
