The Moonshiner

The Kerry Boys - The Kerry Boys


Chorus I'm a Rambler I'm a Gambler I'm a Long way from home And if you don't like me, well leave me alone I'll eat when I'm hungry, I'll drink when I'm dry If the moonshine don't kill me, I'll live 'till I die Chorus I've been a moonshiner for many a yaer I've spent all me money on whiskey and beer I'll go to some hollow, I'll set up my still And I'll make you a gallon for a ten shilling bill I'll go to some hollow in this country Ten gallons of wash, I can go on a spree No woman to callow, the world is all mine I love them so well as I love the monshine Oh moonshine, dear moonshine oh how I love thee You killed me own father, dare you try me Now bless all moonshiners, and bless all moonshine Their breath is as sweet as the dew on the vine
