White Lightning
George Jones

[G]Well in North Carolina, way back in the hills
There lived by old pappy and he had him a still.
He brewed white lightnin' till the sun went down.
Then he filled him a jug and he passed it around.
[D7]Mighty,mighty pleasin,my[C]pappy's
corn squeezings.........(ooh-white-[G]Lightnin')

CHORUS:
Well the[C] "G" men "T" men revenuers too
[G]Looking for the place where he made his brew.
They were[D7]looking tryin to book him but my [C]
pappy kept on cooking.......
(ooh-white-[G]Lighnin')

[G]Well I asked my pappy what he called his brew
He said white lightnin stead of mountain dew
I took one sip and right away I knew
Cause my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue
[D7]Lightnin' started flashin[C]thunder started
crashing.......(ooh-[G]white lightnin')-chorus

[G]Well a city slicker came and he said "I'm tough"
I think I wanna taste that powerful stuff.
He took one sip and drank it right down.
And I heard him a moaning as he hit the ground
[D7]Mighty,mighty pleasin your[C]pappys
corn squeezings.......(ooh-white-[G]lightning.

About the artist behind White Lightning Chords:

George Glenn Jones (born September 12, 1931), is an award-winning American country music singer known for his long list of hit records, his distinctive voice and phrasing, and his marriage to Tammy Wynette.

Jones has had more songs than any other singer on the US Country charts – 167 as of November, 2005.[citation needed] He has also had the most Top 40 Hits – 143 – and is second to Eddy Arnold with the most Top 10 Hits – 78.[citation needed] Over the past twenty years, Jones has frequently been referred to as "the greatest living country singer"[1] and "the Rolls-Royce of country singers." Frank Sinatra once called him "the best white male singer."[citation needed] The country music scholar Bill C. Malone writes, "For the two or three minutes consumed by a song, Jones immerses himself so completely in its lyrics, and in the mood it conveys, that the listener can scarcely avoid becoming similarly involved."

Throughout his long career, Jones made headlines often as much for tales of his drinking, stormy relationships with women, and violent rages as for his prolific career of making records and touring. His wild lifestyle led to Jones missing many performances, earning him the nickname "No Show Jones", but Jones never hid or denied his faults and now, with the help of his fourth wife, he has been "clean" for years. Jones clocked up scores of hits during his career, both as a solo artist and in duets with other artists.
