Copper Kettle (Baez Joan)

Get you a copper kettle Get you a copper coil Cover with new made corn mash And never more you'll toil 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 You just lay there by the juniper While the moon is bright Watch them jugs a-fillin In the pale moonlight My daddy he made whiskey My granddaddy did too We ain't paid no whiskey tax Since Seventeen Ninety Two You just lay there by the juniper While the moon is bright Watch them jugs a-fillin In the pale moonlight
