Can anyone add to the following lyrics? It's from Yazoo's Kentucky Mountain Music.

The Moonshiner
By Daw Henson

I've been a moonshiner for seven long years
I've made my own whiskey, I steal my own beer
I'll go to the cold??? stream and I'll drink with my friends
No woman to follow to see what I spend
No woman to follow, no children to squall
If you want to life happy, don't marry a dog???
God bless them little women, I wish they would mind
To ____ as sweetly as should??? all moonshine
Come all you little women take warning by me
Don't place your affliction on a young man like me
I'll eat when I'm hungry, I'll drink when I'm dry
If trouble don't kill me, I'll live 'til I die
