moonshiner lyrics – cat power

i’ve been a moonshiner
for seventeen long years
i spent all my money
on whisky and beer

i go to some hollow
and set up my holy, holy still
if drinking do not kill me
then i don’t know what will

i go to some bar room
and drink with my friends
see if women and men would come to follow
to see what i might spend

god bless them handsome men
i wish they was mine
their breath is as sweet as
the dew on the holy, holy vine

you’re already in h*ll, you’re already in h*ll
i wish we could go to h*ll
when the bottle gets empty
and life ain’t worth the drown

/ cat power lyrics
