Thread Name: Lyr Add: The Moonshine Can
Subject: RE: The Moonshine Can
All of the above lyrics are incorrect. Speaking from someone who actually belongs to the family that created the song "The Moonshine Can". Pat Troy was from Goose Cove East in Newfoundland and he actually wrote the song to describe his experince of being the frist Newfoundlander to go to court for making the illegal substance. The lonely place he talks about travelling to is St. Anthony. As for the verses, well there are alot missing! Pat Troy in the original song thanks the many people who helped him; Mr. Biles, Mr. Ollerhead, Mr. MCdonald, the Magistrate, etc.
