We’re both big fans of Harley Allen’s writing and singing. I came across this song years ago on an old Harley Allen & Mike Lilly (of whom I’m also a fan) record. It’s a song from the public domain and is an age old story about one of the earliest professions in this country. Randy’s soulful reso playing is killer here!!


I’ve been a moonshiner, for forty long years
I’ve spent all of my money on whiskey and beer

Verse 1
I’ll go up some holler / and sit at my still
There I’ll sell you a gallon for a 2 dollar bill

Verse 2

God Bless all them good men / I wish one were mine
Their breath is more sweeter than dew on the vine

Verse 3
I’ll go to some barroom / and drink with my friends
There no one will bother / or see what I spend
