You Are my Moonshine
Chorus: You are my moonshine, my only moonshine;
You make me sappy, both night and day.
You'll never know, dear, how much I love beer; Please don't take my moonshine away.
I gave my horses a drink of whiskey;
The way they acted was a wow! When I went out to dig potaters,
They tried to hitch me to the plow.
My sweetie told me if I'd quit drinking That she would soon become wife;
But I love whiskey more than I love my sweetie; I'll be a bachelor all my life.
