White Lightning, Released by George Jones in 1959 and went on to become the very first of his many number one hits. I dedicate this to the old "possum" himself, George Jones....and also to the late "Popcorn Sutton"
please enjoy:)

Well in North Carolina, way back in the hills
lived my old pappy and he had him a still
We brewed white lightnin' 'til the sun went down
Then he'd fill him a jug and he'd pass it around
Mighty, mighty pleasin, pappy's corn squeezin'
Whshhhoooh . . . white lightnin'

Well the "G" men, "T" men, revenuers, too
Searchin' for the place where he made his brew
They were looking, tryin to book him,
But my pappy kept a-cookin'
Whshhhoooh . . . white lightnin'

--- Instrumental ---

Well I asked my old pappy why he called his brew
White lightnin' 'stead of mountain dew
I took a little sip and right away I knew
As my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue
Thunder started crashing, lightning started flashing
Shhhoooh . .hiccup..oooh. . white lightnin'

Well the "G" men, "T" men, revenuers, too
Searchin' for the place where he made his brew
They were looking, tryin to book him,
but my pappy kept a-cookin'
Whshhhoooh . . . white lightnin'

--- Instrumental ---

Well a city slicker came and he said "I'm tough"
I think I wanna taste that powerful stuff
He took a little s-s-slug and drank it right down
And I heard him a moaning as he hit the ground
Mighty, mighty pleasin, pappy's corn squeezin'
Whshhhoooh . .hiccup..ooow. . white lightnin'

Well the "G" men, "T" men, revenuers, too
Searchin' for the place where he made his brew
They were looking, tryin to book him,
but my pappy kept a-cookin'
Whshhhoooh . . . white lightnin'...
