Here are the words:

White Lightning 
George Jones

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.
Mighty,mighty pleasin,my pappy's 
corn squeezings.........(ooh-white-Lightnin')

Well the "G" men "T" men revenuers too
Looking for the place where he made his brew.
They werelooking tryin to book him but my 
pappy kept on cooking.......

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
Lightnin' started flashin thunder started
crashing.......(ooh-white lightnin')-chorus

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
Mighty,mighty pleasin your pappys 
corn squeezings.......(ooh-white-lightning.
