Bootlegger's Blues-Mississippi Sheiks
Walter Vinson, vocal and guitar in G position, standard tuning, Lonnie Chatmon, fiddle, Bo Carter, second guitar

Pack of whiskey on my back, and the sheriffs is on my track
I'm gonna make it to the woods, if I can
I take your words to go my bail, rather to go to the county jail
You better make it to the woods, if you can
REFRAIN: If you can, if you can
You better make it to the woods if you can

If you want to have to leave home, you just mess with a bottle of corn
You got to make it to the woods, if you can
You may think they're doing you wrong, but they'll send you to the county farm
You better make it to the woods, if you can
REFRAIN: If you can, if you can
You better make it to the woods if you can

When you go out for a load, the sherriff will stop you on the road, you'll have to make it to the woods, if you can
It's a real surprising thing, that's to hear those forty-fours ring
You better make it to the woods, if you can
REFRAIN: If you can, if you can
You better make it to the woods if you can

Spoken: Boy, they'd sure get to hear about liquor

Ever since the state went dry, the bootleggers have to stand shy
They gonna keep out the way of the sheriff, if they can
REFRAIN: If they can, if they can
They gonna keep out the way of the sheriff, if they can
