Turpentine and dandelion wine
I've turned the corner an' I'm doin' fine
Shootin' at the birds on the telephone line
Pickin' 'em off with this gun o' mine
Got a fire in my belly and a fire in my head
Going higher and higher till I'm dead

Sister Sue is short and stout, she didn't grow up, she grew out
Momma says, she's plain but she's just being kind
Papa thinks she's pretty but he's almost blind
Don't let her out much except at night
But I don't care 'cause I'm all right

Oh, the sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home
Young folks roll on the floor
