Thread Name: Moonshine Songs
Subject: RE: Moonshine Songs
Are there any Scottish moonshining songs? I can think of Irish, American, and Canadian songs in this vein but off the top of my head can't think of any Scottish ones. Odd considering that moonshining must have had a history there too. Maybe proper Scotch was so good no-one bothered to make the illicit stuff?

Or for that matter, traditional moonshine songs from England? Did the English just rely on duty-free French brandy smuggled by the Cornishers, or was gin so cheap that home stills were unnecessary?
