Capo on 5th fret
	  		   Am/G   F/G    C/G                           G/B     G/C  G/D 


  Am/G  F/G     C/G 
I am a      moonshiner 
                   G/B  G/C  G/D 
For seventeen long years 
      Am/G     F/G     C/G 
And I spent all     my money 
               G/B  G/C  G/D 
On whiskey and beer 

   F    G/B                       C/G       F 


      F          G/B 
And I go to some hollow 
    C/G       F 
And set up my still 

If whiskey don't kill me 
Lord, I don't know what will  

And I go to some barroom 
To drink with my friends 
Where the women they can't follow 
To see what I spend 
God bless them, pretty women 
I wish they was mine 
With breath as sweet as 
The dew on the vine 

Let me eat when I'm hungry 
Let me drink when I'm dry 
Two dollars when I'm hard up 
Religion when I die 
The whole world is a bottle 
And life is but a dram 
When the bottle gets empty 
Lord, it sure ain't worth a damn 

Here's the version I like to play: 


    Em/D  C/D   G/D             D 


  Em/D  C/D     G/D 
I am a      moonshiner 
For seventeen long years 
      Em/D     C/D     G/D 
And I spent all     my money 
On whiskey and beer 

      C          D 
And I go to some hollow 
    G         C 
And set up my still 
If whiskey don't kill me 
Lord, I don't know what will
