Now, any-'is, moonshine
Moonshine do harm to many men
Now any-'is, moonshine
Moonshine do harm to many men
Now, that is the reason why
Yank, I believe I'll make a change

Now, moonshine will make you shoot down
Make you wanna fight
Now n' when you go home
An you can't, treat your wife right

Well, you've been drinkin' moonshine
Moonshine do harm to many men
Now, that is the reason why
I believe I'll make a change

Now, moonshine will make you think that the policeman
Is little deliver boy
Moonshine will make you think that street cars
Is little children play toys

Then you been drinkin' moonshine
Moonshine do harm to many men
Now, that is the reason why
I believe I'll make a change

Now, moonshine will make you go home
Lay down 'cross yo' bed
An your wife try to talk wit'ch you
You say, you didn't hear a word she said

You been drinkin' moonshine
Moonshine do harm to many men
Now, that is the reason why
I believe I'll make a change

Now, moonshine will make you get drunk
N' walk out in the street
Moonshine will make you cuss out most
Anybody you meet

You been drinkin' moonshine
Moonshine do harm to many men
Now, that is the reason why
I believe I'll make a change.
