  Self Portrait recording session 4, Columbia Studios, NYC - 3.mar.1970  

Get you a copper kettle
Get you a copper coil
Fill it with new made corn mash
And never more you'll toil.

You'll just lay there by the juniper
While the moon is bright
Watch them jugs a-fillin'
In the pale moonlight.

Build you a fire with hickory
Hickory, ash and oak
Don't use no green or rotten wood
They'll get you by the smoke.

We'll 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 he did too
We ain't paid no whiskey tax
Since seventeen ninety two.

You'll just lay there by the juniper
While the moon is bright
Watch them jugs a-fillin'
In the pale moonlight
In the pale moonlight.  up
