This is a spin-off of Rosebrooks "Favorite Melodies" thread.
Two of my favorite moonshine songs don't seem to be in the DT, and I know neither of them in full.
Get you a Coper Kettle
Get you some coper coil
Cover it up with new-mown hay
Never more you'll toil.
You'll just lay there 'neath the Juniper tree
Lay there all the night
Whatch them jugs a-fillin'
In the pale moonlight.
The other one might be Irish in origin:
I've been a moonshiner for many a year
I spend all my money on whiskey and beer
I go to some hollow and sets up a still
And I'll make you a gallon for a ten dollar bill
Oh moonshine, Oh moonshine, Oh how I love thee,
You killed me old father, but did all right by me
This one would fit in with Rosebrooks Whiskey Medley, I suspect.
The first one was sung by one of the female folk singers of the 60s, but I suspect it has a longer history.
I would be interested in their history and in the rest of the lyrics.
