Grandad’s Elixir

I’m no good in a kitchen but, I can cook stuff all the same
Around here, say “the recipe” and most folks know my name
It hasn’t changed in fifty years, and folks still drink it up
I’ve been making it with my granddad since I was just a pup

I”ve been racing cars through out these woods since before most learn to drive
I’ve been chased by cops and revenuers, I surprised I’m still alive
The funny thing, they know the route, and I always make the border
Because if they ever caught me, I would just cancel their order

Magic comes from our hard toil
Once it travels through the coil
We cook it slow on a low boil
It’s cooked according to old Hoyle
It’s magic in a glass
And it’ll put you on your ass

In all the years that we’ve been cooking we’ve only moved on twice
Not because the cops found us, but because of all the mice
Grandpappy started cooking when the jobs round here dried up
And me, I’ve been his helper since I was just a pup

Everyone’s on credit, we all live on iou’s
There’s still no jobs around here, there just isn’t no good news
But, if folks round here need healing, we’ve got magic in a jug
Our granddads old elixir is a moonshine mountain hug

Magic comes from our hard toil
Once it travels through the coil
We cook it slow on a low boil
It’s cooked according to old Hoyle
It’s magic in a glass
And it’ll put you on your ass
