Joan Baez — Copper Kettle lyrics

Get you a copper kettle
Get you a copper coil
Cover with new made corn mash
And never more you'll toil

Chorus:

You just lay there by the juniper
While the moon is bright
Watch them jugs a-fillin
In the pale moonlight

Build your fires of hickory
Hickory or ash or oak
Don't use no green or rotten wood
They'll catch you by the smoke

[Chorus:]

My daddy he made whiskey
My granddaddy did too
We ain't paid no whiskey tax
Since Seventeen Ninety Two

[Chorus:]
