[Verse]
G
Well in North Carolina way back in the hills
Lived my old pappy and he had him a still
He brewed white lightning 'til the sun went down,
And then he'd fill him a jug mmm-hmm and pass it around

G
Bwwwwwsh, white lightnin'

Well I asked my old pappy why he called his brew
White lightnin' 'stead of mountain dew
I took a little sip and right away I knew
As my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue
D
Lightnin' started flashin',
C
thunder started clashin'
G
Bwwwwwsh, white lightnin'
 
[Chorus]
Yeah the

Well a city slicker came and said "I'm tough
I think I wanna taste that powerful stuff"
He took one shlug and he drank it right down
And I heard him a-moanin' as he hit the ground
D
Mighty mighty pleasin' your
C
pappy's home-squeezin'
G
Bwwwwwsh, white lightnin'
 
[Chorus]
Yeah the
