White Lightning
written by J. P. Richardson
tabbed 7/8/05



Well in North Carolina way back in the hills 

Lived my old pappy and he had him a still

He brewed white lightning 'til the sun went down,
               N/C                                        G-G/F#
And then he'd fill him a jug mmm-hmm and pass it around
D                             C
Mighty mighty pleasin' you're pappy's home-squeezin'
N/C                        G
Bwwwwwsh, white lightnin'

Yeah the G-men, T-men, revenuers too
Searchin' for the place where he made his brew
           D                                C
They were lookin' tryin' to book 'im but my pappy kept on cookin'
N/C                          G
Bwwwwwsh, white lightnin'


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
Lightnin' started flashin', thunder started clashin'
Bwwwwwsh, white lightnin'


Well a city slicker came and said "I'm tough
I think I wanna taste that powerful stuff"
He took one shlug and he drank it right down
And I heard him a-moanin' as he hit the ground
Mighty mighty pleasin' you're pappy's home-squeezin'
Bwwwwwsh, white lightnin'

CHORUS (don't do the very last line)

This is an awesome song. George Jones is famous for this song. Nice tab.

Thanks. And yeah, it's purely a George Jones song...just thought I'd post Waylon's version of it.
