Bootleg

Written in October 1994 in Edmonton, Alberta

Mama said to Papa, “Before you go
There’s one thing you’ve got to know
If you’re gonna leave, well that’s just fine
Just leave a little shot of your lovin’ moonshine”

Bootleg
Bootleg
Bootleg all night long
Bootleg
Bootleg
Bootleg all night long

Mama to her baby, here’s what she said
“Sweet temptation is the Devil’s bed
Don’t you get caught in that old grapevine
You gotta stay away from that lovin’ moonshine”

Bootleg
Bootleg
Bootleg all night long
Bootleg
Bootleg
Bootleg all night long

Mama said “Son, you find someone nice”
But I don’t take that woman’s advice
I found me a woman, now she’s all mine
With a sweet little lover and a lovin’ moonshine

Bootleg
Bootleg
Bootleg all night long
Bootleg
Bootleg
Bootleg all night long

Well I’ve done me some time at the pen on the hill
Old Shepman, he haunts it still
Take me back cool, to another time
With a sweet little lover and a lovin’ moonshine

Bootleg
Bootleg
Bootleg all night long
Bootleg
Bootleg
Bootleg all night long
