about

Traditional Appalachian moonshinin' tune, arranged by the band

lyrics

Come on all you boozefighters if you want to hear
About the kind of booze that we sell around here
It's made out of buckwheat, rye, and corn
All bottled up in some old barn

We don't give a damn for the bowl state law
And for prohibition we don't care at all
It's made way back in the swamps and the hills
Where there's plenty of moonshine stills

And the lamb'll lay down with the lion
After drinking this old moonshine

One drop will make a rabbit kick a bulldog
One drop will make a cat chase a wild hog
Make a bullfrog spit in a black snake's face
A hardshell preacher fall from grace

And the lamb'll lay down with the lion
After drinking this old moonshine

Tip up your head and you take a little drink
And for a week you won't be able to think
The next thing you know you'll be gettin' kinda tight
Out on the street tryna raise a fight

So you tip up your head and you take a little more
And for a month you'll be feeling kinda sore
And then you'll swear you won't drink it anymore
You've said that a thousand times before

And the lamb will lay down with the lion
After drinking this old moonshine

They hail from Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario. ... more
