Waste Of Good Corn Liquor Lyrics

I have lost my blue-eyed darling,
Now I sit with a broken heart
By my cabin in the Carolina hills
Oh I loved the shiner's daughter
Loved her true with all my heart
'Til she fell into her pappy's likker still

(CHORUS)
Oh what a waste of good corn likker
From the still they pulled the plug
All the revenuers snicker
'Cause she melted in the likker
And they had to bury poor Lilly by the jug

Cousin Caleb on the jew's harp
Played a mighty mournful tune
Kinfolks bowed their heads and gathered round
When we heard the parson sing
"Drink me only with thine eyes"
As we watch them pour poor Lilly in the ground

CHORUS

Now I'm sittin' in the twilight
'Neath the weepin' willow tree
The sun is slowly sinkin' in the west
And I'm claspin' to my bosom
A little jug of Lilly May
With a broken heart I'm longing for the rest.

CHORUS
