White Lightning  George Jones



  

  

[G]Well┬ in┬ North┬ Carolina,┬ way┬ back┬ in┬ the┬ hills
There┬ lived┬ my┬ old┬ pappy┬ and┬ he┬ had┬ him┬ a┬ still.
He┬ brewed┬ white┬ lightnin'┬ till┬ the┬ sun┬ went┬ down.
Then┬ he┬ filled┬ him┬ a┬ jug┬ and┬ he┬ passed┬ it┬ around.
[D7]Mighty,mighty┬ pleasin,my[C]pappy's┬
corn┬ squeezings.........(ooh-white-[G]Lightnin')
CHORUS:
Well┬ the[C]┬ "G"┬ men┬ "T"┬ men┬ revenuers┬ too
[G]Looking┬ for┬ the┬ place┬ where┬ he┬ made┬ his┬ brew.
They┬ were[D7]looking┬ tryin┬ to┬ book┬ him┬ but┬ my┬ [C]
pappy┬ kept┬ on┬ cooking.......
(ooh-white-[G]Lighnin')
[G]Well┬ I┬ asked┬ my┬ pappy┬ what┬ he┬ called┬ his┬ brew
He┬ said┬ white┬ lightnin┬ stead┬ of┬ mountain┬ dew
I┬ took┬ one┬ sip┬ and┬ right┬ away┬ I┬ knew
Cause┬ my┬ eyes┬ bugged┬ out┬ and┬ my┬ face┬ turned┬ blue
[D7]Lightnin'┬ started┬ flashin[C]thunder┬ started
crashing.......(ooh-[G]white┬ lightnin')-chorus
[G]Well┬ a┬ city┬ slicker┬ came┬ and┬ he┬ said┬ "I'm┬ tough"
I┬ think┬ I┬ wanna┬ taste┬ that┬ powerful┬ stuff.
He┬ took┬ one┬ sip┬ and┬ drank┬ it┬ right┬ down.
And┬ I┬ heard┬ him┬ a┬ moaning┬ as┬ he┬ hit┬ the┬ ground
[D7]Mighty,mighty┬ pleasin┬ your[C]pappys┬
corn┬ squeezings.......(ooh-white-[G]lightning.
