[G]Turpentine and dandelion wine
I've turned the corner, I'm d[C]oin' fine
Shootin' at the birds on the [G]telephoneline
[D7]Pickin' them off with this gu[G]n o' mine
I got a f[C]ire in my belly and a f[G]ire in my head
Growing h[D7]igher and higher 'till I'm [G]dea[D7]d   [G]   [D7]    [G]   [D7]    [G]   [D7]
Sister Sue she's short and stout
She didn't grow up, she grew out
Mama thinks she's plain, but she's just being kind
Papa thinks she's pretty, but he's almost blind
We don't let her out much except at night
But I don't care 'cause I'm allright

O-ho, the [G]sun shines bright on my o[C]ld Kentucky [G]home
[G]Young folks roll on the [D7]floor
[G]O-ho, the sun shines bright on my o[C]ld Kentucky hom[G]e
[G]Keep them hard times a[D7]way from my [G]do[D7]or [G]  [D7]   [G]  [D7]   [G]  [D7]

Brother Gene, he's big and mean
And he don't have much to say
Got a little woman who he whooped eached day
But now she's gone away
Got drunk last night, kicked mama down the stairs
But I'm allright, so I don't care
