White Lightning Lyrics

by Conway Twitty

(Whew whay soway)
White lightning

In the Arkansas mountains way back in the hills
Lived my old pappy we had us a still
We brewed white lightning till the sun went down

And we take out a jug and we pass it around
Mighty mighty pleasin' my pappy's corn squeezin'
(Whew whay soway)
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 splashin' thunder started crashin'
(Whew whay soway)
White lightning

Well the G men T men revenoers too
Searchin' for the place where he made his brew
They were looking tryin' to book him but my pappy kept on cookin'
(Whew whay soway)
White lightning

Well a city slicker came and he said I'm tough
I gotta have a drink of that powerful stuff
He took one drink and he slug it right down

And I heard him a moanin' as he hit the ground
Mighty mighty pleasin' your pappy's corn squeezin'
(Whew whay soway)
White lightning

Well the G men T men
