American Ballads and Folk Songs
You can always tell by the whiff and the smell, That the liquor boys are nigh.
This mountain dew is made from grain,
And mixed with water pure, And the alcohol that it contains
Will all your troubles cure.
Refrain:
Will all your troubles cure, Will all your troubles cure, And the alcohol that it contains Will all your troubles cure.
All learned men who use the pen
Have writ its praises high; It fills the air with perfume rare
Distilled with wheat and rye.
Refrain:
Distilled with wheat and rye, Distilled with wheat and rye, It fills the air with perfume rare Distilled with wheat and rye.
Away with pills, 'twill cure the ills
Of Pagan, Christian and Jew, Off with your coat and wet your throat
With the real old mountain dew.
Refrain:
With the real old mountain dew, With the real old mountain dew, Off with your coat and wet your throat With the real old mountain dew.
[181]
