What part of a woman is a 'Still?'


I wonder who's kissing her 'Now.'

I'm dreaming of her 'Yet.'

Sorry.

You got the drift of it Leadfingers.   One line of the song says "I can't remember her name, but I remember her Still!"

I courted a moonshiner's daughter
she never had tasted water
***
I've forgotten what she looks like now
but I remember her still


I've just gotten on a Jimmie Driftwood kick..and getting ready to transcribe for myself.
Any interest in these words still?

According to Allmusic.com, Jimmie Driftwood's album "Voice of the People" (1963, reissued 2007) contains I REMEMBER HER STILL. I transcribed this much from a sample. I have not been able to find a complete recording online.

...I remember her still.
I've forgotten what she looks like now,
But I remember her still.

That gal was always a-sippin'
Where the yaller corn kept drippin'.
The smoke a-risin' from her whiskey still,
The moon a-shinin' down on Moonshine Hill—
One look from her would give my heart a [thrill]....

I REMEMBER HER STILL
(Jimmy Driftwood)

I courted a moonshiner's daughter
She never had tasted water
I called her Filly and she called me Hoss
Her lips were sweeter than Tobasco Sauce
I thought someday that I would be her boss

CHORUS
But the revenoors made a raid one night
And I went over the hill
I've forgotten what she looks like now
But I remember her still

That gal was always a-sippin'
Where the yaller corn kept drippin'.
The smoke a-risin' from her whiskey still,
The moon a-shinin' down on Moonshine Hill—
One look from her would give my heart a thrill

CHORUS

They caught me in Baxter County
And of course she's got a bounty
She swore the liquor all belonged to me
They sent me to the penitentiary
One thing I'm gonna tell her when I'm free

CHORUS
