Demo Lyrics & Pdf

This was George Jones first #1 hit on the country charts back in 1959. The song was written by a friend of his, J.P. Richardson a.k.a. The Big Bopper, who was killed in the Buddy Holly plane crash along with Ritchie Valens. George took 80 takes on this song, when it was finally decided that the first take was the best.

White Lightning Lyrics


Well, in the North of Carolina, way back in the hills - Me and my old pappy and he had him a still
He brewed white lightnin' till the sun went down - And then you'd fill him a jug and he'd pass it around
Mighty, mighty pleasin', pappy's corn squeezin' - Ssh, white lightning

Well, the "G" men, "T" men, revenuers, too
Searchin' for the place where he made his brew
They were looking, tryin to book him, but my pappy kept on cookin'
Phoo, white lightning

Well, I asked my old pappy why he called his brew - White lightning 'stead of mountain dew
I took a little sip and right away I knew - as my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue
Lightning started flashin', thunder started clashin' - Fshhh, white lightnin'

Well, the "G" men, "T" men, revenuers, too
Searchin' for the place where he made his brew
They were looking, tryin to book him, but my pappy kept on cookin'
Phoo, white lightning

Well, a city slicker came and he said "I'm tough" - I think I want to taste that powerful stuff
He took one s-slug and drank it right down - and I heard him a-moaning as he hit the ground
Mighty, mighty pleasin', your pappy's corn squeezin' - Sshoo, white lightning

Well, I asked my old pappy why he called his brew - White lightning 'stead of mountain dew
I took a little sip and right away I knew - as my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue
Lightning started flashin', thunder started clashin' - Fshhh, white lightnin'
