    Copperhead Road
    (Steve Earle)


    Well my name's John Lee Pettimore
    Same as my daddy and his daddy before
    You hardly ever saw Grandaddy down here
    He only came to town about twice a year
    He'd buy a hundred pounds of yeast and some copper line
    Everybody knew that he made moonshine
    Now the revenue man wanted Grandaddy bad
    He headed up the holler with everything he had
    It's before my time but I've been told
    He never came back from Copperhead Road
    Now Daddy ran the whiskey in a big block Dodge
    Bought it at an auction at the Mason's Lodge
    Johnson County Sheriff painted on the side
    Just shot a coat of primer then he looked inside
    Well him and my uncle tore that engine down
    I still remember that rumblin' sound
    Well the sheriff came around in the middle of the night
    Heard mama cryin', knew something wasn't right
    He was headed down to Knoxville with the weekly load
    You could smell the whiskey burnin' down Copperhead Road

    I volunteered for the Army on my birthday
    They draft the white trash first,'round here anyway
    I done two tours of duty in Vietnam
    And I came home with a brand new plan
    I take the seed from Colombia and Mexico
    I plant it up the holler down Copperhead Road
    Well the D.E.A.'s got a chopper in the air
    I wake up screaming like I'm back over there
    I learned a thing or two from ol' Charlie don't you know
    You better stay away from Copperhead Road
