Copper Kettle Lyrics

by Bob Dylan

Get you a copper kettle, get you a copper coil
Fill it with new made corn mash
And never more you'll toil

You'll just lay there by the juniper
While the moon is bright
Watch them jugs a filling in the pale moonlight

Build you a fire with hickory, hickory, ash and oak
Don't use no green or rotten wood
They'll get you by the smoke

We'll just lay there by the juniper
While the moon is bright
Watch them jugs a filling in the pale moonlight

My daddy, he made whiskey
My granddaddy, he did too
We ain't paid no whiskey tax since 1792

We'll just lay there by the juniper
While the moon is bright
Watch them jugs a filling in the pale moonlight
In the pale moonlight
