Music & lyrics by J.P. Richardson (aka The Big Bopper)

lyrics

Well way down in Kentucky, way back in the hills
lived my old pappy daddy and he had him a still
He brewed white lightnin' till the sun went down
Then he'd fill up a jug and he'd pass it around
Mighty mighty pleasin my pappy's corn squeezin
(Whew, 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
And my eyes bugged out and my hair turned blue
Mighty mighty pleasin my pappy's corn squeezin
(Whew, white lightnin')

Yeah the G men, T men, revenuers too lookin for the place where he made his brew
They were lookin for to book him but my pappy kept on cookin
(Whew, white lightnin')

[guitar]

Yeah the city slicker came and he said I'm tough
I think I want to taste that powerful stuff
He took one swig and he drank it right down I heard him moanin' as he hit the ground
Mighty mighty pleasin your pappy's corn squeezin
(Whew, white lightnin')
