Just transcribed it from Mac Benford CD. It's from the Highwoods days:

Corn whiskey, Corn whiskey, I know you from old. Your rob all my pockets of silver and gold.
Don't drink nothin' but Corn, don't drink nothin' but Corn, don't drink nothin' but Corn.

Now sometimes I have one drink, sometime I have two, when I drink corn whiskey, no telling what I'll do.
Don't drink nothin' but Corn, don't drink nothin' but Corn, don't drink nothin' but Corn

It's cold bread when I'm hungry, corn whiskey when I'm dry, my pipe is made from Corn cobs 'n Corn chucks would I lie.


Don't drink nothin' but Corn, I don't drink nothin' but Corn, don't drink nothin' but Corn.

My mama told me something, my daddy told me more, if I drink more whiskey there's trouble at my door.
Don't drink nothin' but Corn, don't drink nothin' but Corn, don't drink nothin' but Corn

Corn whiskey, Corn whiskey, Corn whiskey, I tried, if I don't get Corn whiskey I surely will die.
Don't drink nothin' but Corn, I don't drink nothin' but Corn, don't drink nothin' but Corn

Don't drink nothin' but Corn, I don't drink nothin' but Corn, I don't drink nothin' but Corn

Kate's mostly got 'em right but with just a couple of very minor things wrong:
Verse 3: my pipe is made from corn cobs ON cornshucks....
Last verse:corn whiskey I cry (not tried).
At least that's what I think.
Great song - sang it tonight in Wath folk club.
Cheers
Ray
