Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Pappy's Moonshine Still
 
{Verse-1}
Yesterday I was thinkin' bout
my childhood days
Wondering how we got
where we are today
The world has gotten crazy,
ain't like it used to be
Family used to mean
something, back in 63
Now everybody lives their
life, fighting one another
Seems the whole damn
world, is brother against
brother
{Verse-2}
I used to drive my daddy's
truck, down a dusty road
Used to walk across the yard,
to use the damn commode
Grandma used to bake them
cookies, that made us all get
fat
They used to call us country
boys, but Mama called us
brats
My Pappy had a moonshine
still, in the woods way out
back
I used to take my
sweetheart there, man she
had a rack
{Chorus}
Yeah my pappy had a
moonshine still, up there in
the woods
Me and my brother used to
steal some, every chance we
could
We used hunt for food, way
back there in the woods
Sometimes we'd take are
sweetie there, to learn
everything we could
Today you can't even find
the woods, it's all went to
hell
Oh boy do I miss those days,
and pappy's moonshine still
{Verse-3}
My High school days were
somethin', my baby by my
side
Going to the drive in show,
doin' things that made us
hide
My sweetheart used to teach
me things, you'd never learn
in school
Today that's all different
now, You can learn it at the
pool
Sometimes I wish it was
possible, to go back and start
out new
Sneakin' off out in the
woods, drinkin' pappy's
mountain dew
{Chorus}
Yeah my pappy had a
moonshine still, up there in
the woods
Me and my brother used to
steal some, every chance we
could
We used hunt for food, way
back there in the woods
Sometimes we'd take are
sweetie there, to learn
everything we could
Today you can't even find
the woods, it's all went to
hell
Oh boy do I miss those days,
and pappy's moonshine still
